Being shy, I’ve done improv, acting, comedy, Toastmasters, mediation… This class is the most direct and effective. Within weeks, I was comfortable approaching strangers, having fun impromptu conversations, making them laugh.
What I found most helpful: high status humor, weaving (small talk structures), assertiveness skills, and cognitive reframing of rejection. Eric’s sense of humor and positivity are infectious.
One of the most unique and useful part of this class is the social network for students. Not only do students get together several times a week to practice, even after the class is over, Craig and alums continue to organize practice sessions and social events (via GroupMe).
This is one of the most fun and useful classes I’ve taken.
