“Whoever Tells the Best Story Best, Wins!”
That is the reality in today’s world, and everyone can be coached to master communication/leadership skills for succeeding in school, at different stages of career, and have a colorful/fruitful life!
The program focuses on learning the fundamentals of public speaking while building self-confidence and leadership skills simultaneously. Students will be practicing in a group setting and get improved on:
• Giving impactful and memorable PREPARED speeches
• Providing constructive FEEDBACK speeches to classmates,
• Posting critical QUESTIONS at the right time with appropriate manner, and
• Answering QUESTIONS satisfactorily posted by the coach and/or classmates.
These 4 types of speaking tasks are the most powerful and critical communication skills to master. We will cover the basic and practical public speaking techniques with the goal of making speeches impactful and memorable. We focus on providing effective communication, practicing emotional intelligence, understanding inter-personal soft skills, and learning leadership fundamentals. Our experience shows that “AS long as students/individuals are willing to speak, they will be successful in this well-paced learning, and enjoy this fun and interactive program”. This is a basic course for any advanced speaking class, e.g., debate classes, can be used for daily life, at school, for internship, college entrance, and job interviews.
