How to be Sociable - Virtual Class
What is ‘How to Be Sociable’?
How to Be Sociable is a 2.5 hour class by The School of Life which takes place regularly in our virtual classroom over Zoom. It is one of 12 classes around our 4 core themes: Love, Work, Self and Culture. Further information on how to connect to the class will be made available once you have purchased a ticket.
Why should I attend?
We all long to have sincere, intimate, warm-hearted and interesting meetings with friends and strangers - but too often, we fail to connect as we would like to. This is a class expressly designed to teach us the skills to have the kind of social life we deserve. It shows us how to escape unfruitful and loneliness-inducing small talk and how elegantly to start to have properly enriching connections with others. We are not only shown where we are going wrong, we’re given practical guidance - and group rehearsals - in winning strategies. Not least, we will laugh together as we learn.
What will I learn?
How to Be Sociable teaches:
- 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?
The format of this class is highly interactive and involves a combination of teaching, group discussion and individual reflection. The facilitators of the class aim to create a confidential space where all participants are welcome to contribute freely and comfortably. If you have any questions about the format of the class please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
