Screens and apps have created a high level of apprehension around having “real” conversations.
Every year high school and college students are on a epic journey that presents countless unique opportunities and challenges. Our TalkShop™ workshop helps students develop and implement communication strategies that will not only improve their academic performance but also their lifelong social skills. Learning how to communicate with clarity, brevity and impact – then turning around and leveraging those skills in their day to day lives – these are a few of the key tools that students will walk away with.
Countless research has demonstrated that teens these days often have ineffective interpersonal communication patterns – and looking ahead, it’s usually one of the top 2 to 3 skills hiring managers look for and list on job openings.
Effective communication skills are the most critical piece of social development. Real, genuine human connection is the key to personal and professional success. The ability to formulate an idea and articulate it in such a way that others can understand it is essential, not just for achieving professional or academic success, but for simply being able to interact with people on a daily basis. Countless research has demonstrated that students often have ineffective interpersonal communication patterns and fear face to face interaction – especially having a hard or difficult conversation.
