The focus of this Meetup is to improve our social interaction skills so that we can improve our lives and the lives of the people we care about.
It's 2019. Whenever someone responds to me with "I don't know how to do that", I ask if they know how to Google. We live in an age when all knowledge is available to anyone with an internet connection. We also live in an age where having good social intelligence could have drastic impacts on your life. The job you get, the intimate relationships you have, and the social circles we surround ourselves with. However, looking up social intelligence online doesn't help if you can't apply that knowledge in the heat of the moment. Each meeting will consist of 4 parts:
1. Pick a Topic from the list: Body Language, Listening, Tonality, Empathy, Art of Conversation, Deception Detection, Assertiveness and handling conflict, Love Languages/Relationship Skills, Social Anxiety / Mental Health, Personalities 2. Reference the books on said topic, learn the techniques, knowledge, and skills. 3. Practice those skills with each other while video recording. 4. Watch the videos and make observations.
This is a free Meetup and while I have vast knowledge and experience in these topics, I am no expert. I will play the role of facilitator and we will all learn from each other. I look forward to meeting people that have the drive to improve themselves like me.
