How to Interact in the workplace or developing a social life is not natural for everyone. Its hard having the confidence to take risks or know how be calm, confident and interesting when interacting with people regardless if it is a professional or personal situation. With our interpersonal skills training, we will teach you new skills and strategies to be more dynamic with all people in a variety of environments.
Additionally, learn the art of succinct messaging. When you are an expert in an area, it is easy to heavily explain and provide excessive detail. We will teach you how to simplify your talking points for non-technical people, outside clients and executives and supervisors.
Elizabeth Peterson has been a speech therapist and speech coach for over 22 years and has operated her practice in Denver for over 10. She is highly specialized in social and interpersonal skills and is committed to teach you those important skills so you can lead your best life.
Once the basic speech and voice skills have been taught, we will then explore the deeper elements of building interpersonal skills across all environments. You will learn how to be more flexible with your thinking and identify opportunities for starting a conversation by learning how to comment and question with material from the immediate environment or individual.
Example of a closed question: “How do you like your fit-bit”?
Response: “I love it. It’s great.” Not much of an opportunity to build a conversation.
Example of an open question: “Are you using the fit-bit for yourself or are you part of a group?
This is considered open because the answer could easily create a platform for a natural conversation that could then lead to other topics. People love to talk about themselves. The hardest part is starting the conversation. Once you learn how to kick start it, you are forward moving. We will teach you how to master that skill while enjoying yourself.
You will learn how to start with bigger questions and then narrow the topic by indentifying key parts of the response and then ask further questions or offer a comment.
Instead of, “How was your day”? Response: ‘Fine”. Try, “What’s been the best part of your day?” A question like this is specific and the response can be a conversation builder that can lead to new topics.
Even a great conversation can’t last forever, we will teach you how to terminate, change topics or exit gracefully. This is a very helpful skill for networking events.
