What we're about

Let’s get together and learn how to be social dynamos! Jaunty is the school for human life and interaction. Our group is like a dojo for social skills. We offer free workshops and get together to hone our social intelligence while mingling and having fun.

Want to be more confident talking with strangers? How’d you like to attract anyone you want, as a friend or something more? Then you’ve come to the right place. We believe everyone can successfully connect, communicate with and attract whoever they want. And we’d love to teach you how. Come join us and earn your black belt in people skills.

Enhance Your Social Intelligence (San Francisco)

Jaunty @WeWork Golden Gate

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 summer, Jaunty is here to brighten up 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, 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 beer and tea will be served. Seating is limited. Please arrive early. About your Instructor: Craig Gibbons is a Head Instructor at Jaunty. Growing up in a small town near San Luis Obispo, Craig struggled with shyness. Wanting a change, he later delved deep into social and emotional intelligence through academic study and personal experiments. At college, he realized he wanted to work with people and switched majors from Computer Science to Human Performance. After years of self-training, Craig discovered Jaunty and became Eric's apprentice. Craig has coached people in social dynamics and dating through Jaunty since 2012. When he's not exploring positive psychology and self-development, he enjoys learning about metagames and being outdoorsy with his dad. Both Eric and Craig spent thousands of hours experimenting and researching the limits of social behavior to create the tried and tested course material for Jaunty. They are tirelessly dedicated to helping students achieve their goals and become social dynamos. FAQs Location?
