Do you find small talk tedious, pointless or frustrating? Do you wish you could just skip it entirely?
Well, that's because you don't know the secret of small talk. If you didn't know the purpose of a laptop, you would think it was just a flimsy brick. But once you boot up a laptop for the first time and discover how powerful it can be, you'll understand how valuable it is.
The same thing is true of small talk. Once you understand the purpose of small talk, you'll find it far more engaging - and you'll know how to use small talk to foster deep connections with other people.
In my first video course, I explain the three purposes of small talk, using easy-to-remember metaphors (like "The Hedgehog's Dilemma") to help you quickly digest the information and start putting it into action in your interactions. Oh, and you'll get to meet some of my real-life friends - I won't give any spoilers, but my friend Mark did a fantastic job as the Social Detective :)
After watching this course, you'll never look at small talk the same way again.
Daniel Wendler M.A. is the author of the books Improve Your Social Skills and Level Up Your Social Life as well as the website ImproveYourSocialSkills.com. He has helped millions of readers and hundreds of social skills coaching clients achieve their social goals. His commitment to help others find social success was born from his own search for connection. Daniel's quirky personality and awkward behavior meant that his childhood was full of rejection, bullying, and loneliness. But Daniel never stopped yearning for a place to belong. When he was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome (a condition on the autism spectrum that prevented him from learning social skills naturally), he began to teach himself social skills from the ground up, the way you would learn a foreign language. Today, as an author, speaker, and doctoral student in clinical psychology, Daniel shares the techniques that helped him find social success with the world.
