Building Connection through Interpersonal Skills Training

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.

Listening with Intention Builds Interpersonal Skills

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.

Some people make social navigation look easy in the workplace or social scene. The truth is, it can be as hard as navigating a jungle without a map.

 

Interpersonal skills training is ideal for you if:

  • Want to engage more in the workplace or be perceived differently from colleagues or managers
  • A new business owner and need to learn how to network effectively
  • Your goal is to expand your social network or get out on a date

 

It’s amazing what a small training can do for one’s confidence and image. Learning how to speak with interesting intonation and with lower and richer vocal tones are the two primary characteristics of perceived leadership and attraction. Having new skills and strategies will give you the confidence to find opportunity to take social risks and create a new you. You can change your social dynamic.
