Description

How to be sociable - Class

Knowing how to get the most out of the people we meet, live with and work around is fundamental to our chances of a fulfilled life. Too often we feel we’re unable properly to convey our real selves and cannot relate naturally to others. Conversations can get stuck, or be sterile or routine. We’re unable to charm. We struggle to enjoy the company of others, or effectively convey who we are to them.

How to be Sociable tackles, head on, the multiple challenges of knowing how to be with others. It delivers penetrating answers to the following questions:

  • What should our friendships be for?
  • What is charm and how do we acquire it?
  • How can one be at ease in social situations?
  • What makes a good conversationalist?
  • What makes a good listener?

Far from being obvious or trivial, these questions take us to the heart of how we conduct ourselves among others. The class equips us with the tools to make a greater success of our relationships with friends, colleagues and strangers.

FURTHER INFORMATION

How to be Sociable is one of the twelve classes that comprise our core curriculum. Our classes tackle the core themes of emotional life, from relationships and the workplace, to understanding the self and exploring our relationship with culture.

ABOUT CLASSES

Our classes have been designed to give useful insights around the big themes in life. You’ll be challenged to think deeply about the issues that matter most, and provided with a space to share your thoughts, ideas and experiences with other curious, open-minded individuals.

These sessions are designed by experts and taught by members of our faculty. They include a mix of lecture and group activity and conversation.

COURSE LEADER

Manuela Oehler is a communication designer, psychologist and systemic coach who is passionately dedicated to promoting health. As a decision coach, she supports people in finding clarity in important life decisions and establishing change in terms of mentally and physically healthy life-styles. During her studies in psychology in Germany, Sweden and Australia, she became aware of how often our decisions are unconsciously influenced by our fears and thereby hinder our personal development – even though, particularly in struggling with decision-making, there is a tremendous potential to understand who we are and which factors are shaping our personalities and life journeys. Facing the stream of life with a bit more serenity is a challenge that she knows personally. Particularly in times of profound change, yoga and meditation help her with buffering turbulences.
