How to be Sociable (English)
Knowing how to get the most out of the people we meet, live with and work around is fundamental to our chances of a fulfilled life. Too often we feel we’re unable properly to convey our real selves and cannot relate naturally to others. Conversations can get stuck, or be sterile or routine. We’re unable to charm. We struggle to enjoy the company of others, or effectively convey who we are to them.
How to be Sociable tackles, head on, the multiple challenges of knowing how to be with others. It delivers penetrating answers to the following questions:
- What should our friendships be for?
- What is charm and how do we acquire it?
- How can one be at ease in social situations?
- What makes a good conversationalist?
- What makes a good listener?
Far from being obvious or trivial, these questions take us to the heart of how we conduct ourselves among others. The class equips us with the tools to make a greater success of our relationships with friends, colleagues and strangers.
Our classes and workshops consist of a varied mixture of input, self-reflection as well as one-to-one and group discussions. Our experienced lecturers convey a multitude of ideas that stimulate the mind and offer new perspectives. You can meet exciting and like-minded people and make new friends. No prior knowledge or preparation are required.
