Hi, first time forum contributor. I'm usually a little nervous about public forums, but I had to share my micro "yes!" moments.
I have only completed three days of the Master Your People Skills course and Wow!, I've learnt so much already.
The key things that have resonated with me so far:
- First impressions can be made without anyone opening their mouth.
- Micro stories can make you memorable and help conversation flow.
- Asking an interesting question can garner an interesting response.
This tip resonated so strongly that I put it into practice immediately. Asking this question has allowed me to learn more about my colleagues and their personal passion projects, enabled team conversations and additionally, provided a followup question for other people to ask in the following weeks.
The buzz of satisfaction of being rewarded for my "bravery"...... priceless!
Thank you Vanessa and the Science of People team!
Once I've saved some money, I will be applying to be a Body Language Trainer. The power of these skills.....the potential is amazing!
Next ....day 4.... I'm looking forward to it!
