How To Be Sociable

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 that we’re unable to properly 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.

In this class we tackle head on, the multiple challenges of knowing how to be with others. It delivers penetrating answers to the following questions:

  • How can we talk to people we seem to have nothing in common with?
  • What is charm and how do we acquire it?
  • What is the relationship between vulnerability and connection?
  • How can one be at ease in social situations?
  • How can we have deeper, more meaningful conversations?
  • 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. How to be Sociable equips us with the tools to make a greater success of our relationships with friends, colleagues and strangers.
