Conversational skills such active listening, empathy, and non-verbal communication will be explored in-depth; examination and useful strategies for mastering small talk; an understanding of the components that contribute to successful use of storytelling and humor; and the skill of improvisation and how it can be used to keep the conversation going when you feel at a loss for words. Additional topics are examined as well, including: providing helpful tips to learning the right balance of communication skills to use in speaking like a leader; the skills needed to initiate conversational flow with any person in any setting; and acquire strategies that can help anyone to manage anxiety that might arise in a social environment.
