In this workshop, we will explore: Learning to develop an open mindset for developing new social skills. The 2 key cognitive skills needed for social success. Tools and strategies to help you improve your social communication skills. How to develop self awareness and shift your mindset and behavior for the better. What a thriving startup culture looks like and you can create it. And so much more, including your questions!
