Enhance Your Social Intelligence (San Jose)

333 W San Carlos St

Are you ever stuck making small talk or unable to get up the courage to introduce yourself and make a great first impression so you can meet new people? Do you wonder why some people exude magnetism and charisma? Fortunately, this fall, Jaunty is here to rejuvenate your social skills with our effective, free workshop! This fun, interactive workshop is Jaunty's first step into social mastery and includes a mix of theory, exercises, and in-person socialization. We’ll look into the science of social intelligence and practice our tried and tested techniques that will enhance the way you connect with people. Our workshop covers many social graces such as conversational agility and belief systems, and we’ll examine what may be holding you back from your highest potential. If you want to become the social dynamo of your friendships, social connections, or business relations, join us! Be sure to eat beforehand, but kombucha will be served. Seating is limited. Please arrive early. About your Instructor: Melissa Goldberg is the Lead Instructor and Coach for Jaunty's San Jose office. After learning how to introduce herself to anyone, she's shared good conversations and developed relationships with CEOs and VCs, politicians and nonprofit leaders, engineers and business professionals. Melissa has been a coach and trainer since 2012, teaching empowerment, interpersonal and social skills. She's taught at local tech companies, non-profits, festivals and workshops in Silicon Valley and around the country. Outside of work, Melissa loves to dance, be out in nature, meditate, and meet new people.
