Mountains and minds can be moved with words. It’s not what you say, but how you say it. We all have stories to tell, ideas to share, and connections to make. The way we communicate is, in large part, who we are. Did you know that communication is only 7% verbal?!? 93% is non-verbal of which 55% is body language and 38% is tone of voice! This class studies the core principles of communication—both as the receiver and the sender. We will strengthen our own natural skills while exploring various techniques used by history’s great orators like Dr. Martin Luther King, Winston Churchill, Maya Angelou, and more.
