Exceptional People Skills  Have you noticed how some people make great first impressions and seem to get along with everyone they meet? This class teaches you how to improve your people skills and establish a better rapport with coworkers, friends and family alike. From the words you use to your body language, we'll discuss communication styles that encourage and motivate others, while commanding respect and helping you stand out in a crowd. Learn how to handle conflict constructively, make your point without making an enemy and get to "yes" through persuasion, not coercion.

Date & Time:  To be announced

Social Skills Coaching  Personalized one-to-one skills-training sessions designed to identify social strengths, while bolstering areas of social weakness. Participants are coached in the development and implementation of a step-by-step plan to achieve social goals. Common areas targeted in coaching sessions include body-language, conversation skills, presentation skills and strategies for making positive first impressions. Sessions are augmented by audio and vide-taped feedback, practice sessions and homework assignments.
Who would benefit from this program. Individualized social-skills coaching is appropriate for business men and women who want to polish their social presence, singles who would like to refine their dating skills and individuals who simply want to feel more at ease in social situations.
Online Services. I set aside a limited number of openings for online coaching and consultation for people who do not live in the Seattle area and are unable to attend my classes. To participate in online coaching sessions, you must have access to high speed internet services and video conferencing capability of some kind. If you are unfamiliar with video conferencing, we can discuss low or no cost options that may work for you.
