UNFLAPPABLE: HOW TO LOOK SMART WHEN YOU HAVE TO THINK ON YOUR FEET
featuring Steve Hughes of Hit Your Stride
What do you do when someone asks you a question you don’t know the answer to or you’re put on the spot? What if you could remain calm, project confidence, and find your footing in a matter of seconds? Unflappable is a fast-paced, interactive program that gives you simple-to-use tools to unlock your super-computer brain to listen better and engage more effectively with people. Borrowing from the latest scientific research as well as insights from improv performers, you’ll be equipped to stay cool under pressure when the stakes are high. Whether you’re facing down a skeptical partner, presenting a bold idea, or meeting someone new, you can improve your ability to think on your feet. As a bonus, the concepts taught in this course will help you in your volunteer efforts and personal life, too.
