This class delves into interpersonal relationships through the lens of the conversations that create them. We explore the secrets to meeting new people, strengthening close friendships, the nuances behind humor and flirting, the keys to conflict resolution and more, all taught by two of the best persuasive speakers in the country.
We meet twice a week IN PERSON for an hour and a half each (with Berkeley time) to discuss the focus of the lecture and practice the lessons we’ll learn using interactive activities.
Be prepared to open up. Anticipate finding long-term friends among your class of 20 that you’ll learn to admire through our emphasis on acceptance and vulnerability. By virtue of participating in this course, you will learn about your classmates in many ways - not just what they laugh at or what major they’re in, but who they are as human beings. And they will learn about you, so don’t be afraid to be vulnerable, be open, and change how you approach connection.
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
- Start, maintain, and exit conversations gracefully
- Meet new people in any social situation with ease
- Strengthen relationships with friends and family
- Speak in a manner that is liked, understood, and respected
- Be confident by being yourself, not in spite of it
