Have you ever noticed how those days when you are grumpy and you feel like you don't want to talk to anyone, no one talks to you?! And then there are the days when you feel good, maybe you got a promotion at work or you're having a good hair day, and people stop and chat with you, ask you for directions, interact with you while you're in line for coffee.
In this workshop we will teach you concrete skills that you can use to be open and available for connection whenever you want to be. We will look at how to be that magnetic person that everyone seems to want to talk to, how to use body language to communicate, and from a scientific perspective we will take a look at how and why this stuff works. Whether you are looking to increase the number of dates on your calendar, you want to make more influential connections at work, or you are really looking for some new and interesting people to hang out with - this workshop can be the first major step in making those goals your reality.
