Need help approaching new people and making conversation? In this class we will learn strategies & techniques that will give your child the ability to succeed. There are two parts to consider...making friends and keeping friends. In this class we will focus on meeting and making friends. We will start by learning what to do before the conversation even happens that will increase their chances of success such as positive self talk & using effective body language. Using critical thinking...
At the end of the class, students will know how to: *Differentiate positive from negative self talk and put themselves in a good frame of mind to meet new people. *Use effective body language for themselves and also observe the body language of others to identify who is open to being approached. *Be able to come up with relevant conversation starters while looking for common interests to build a discussion. *Use the ask, listen, acknowledge, respond, match formula for conversation. *Use "bait" to attract people with common interests.
As a Career Coach and Recruiter for 15 years, I have been advising candidates on effective body language and communication during the interview process. In my personal life, I have created a game called Friend Master that I have used to help my son navigate the social waters.
At the end of class, I will challenge each learner to practice their new skills by approaching 5 new people a week.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
