Become a social dynamo with Jaunty’s dynamic, six-week, co-ed class. Learn how to strike up a conversation with anyone and make genuine connections for friendship, romance, and business. Starting with the fundamentals, this comprehensive course covers theory, hands-on exercises, and real world training in the following social skills: body language, conversational agility, assertiveness, humor, magnetism, approach and introduction, and belief systems. We keep class sizes small and have plenty of time to try out techniques, and practice in a safe environment.

Class One: Status [Monday, July 13]
Continuing on from the workshop, students learn about internal status and body language. We learn why the “mildly uncomfortable zone” is a great place to be. We practice strong eye contact, stillness, poise, and “threading.”
Class Two: Voice and Assertiveness [Monday, July 20]
Our voice is one of our most powerful tools for connecting with people, yet a lot of us sell ourselves short by speaking too quickly or quietly. In this class we learn how to raise our internal status with our voices. We build empathy with the “cold read,” and learn the importance of emotion in creating a personal connection. We practice our assertiveness skills, expressing our bold opinions while respecting others.
Class Three: Approach and Conversational Agility [Monday, July 27]
Many of us find the approach, (going up to a total stranger and striking up a conversation) one of the hardest social skills. By focusing on the approach we become more comfortable with this critical step in meeting new people. In this class we learn techniques for the “direct approach” and universal, conversational structures for talking with new people, including “weaving,” a surefire method to keep a conversation going.
Class Four: Humor [Monday, August 3]
High status humor is a way to play with the world around us. This is one of the quickest ways to build attraction and make conversations more enjoyable. In this class we learn different comedic formulas including character humor. We learn how to work a room and how to handle any reaction with finesse. We discover the concept of “frame” which involves the power of your strong world view, and “social proof” which is how others see you.
Class Five: Magnetism and Charisma [Monday, August 10]
In this class we experiment with a style of sensual communication and storytelling, involving the five senses. We learn about sexual communication and how to walk the line between creepy/too sexual and completely platonic. We play with touch and learn how physical closeness helps us connect with others. This class explores complimenting and accepting compliments, how to raise other peoples’ status, relationship investment and management.
Class Six: Mental Pattern Shifting and Belief Systems [Monday, August 17]
At some point or another, we’ve all let our fears hold us back. In this final class, we investigate what old beliefs and fears we’re still hanging on to, and use a practice of psychology and cognitive behavioral therapy to blow them up and put them behind us.

Wanting to change, he later delved deep into social and emotional intelligence through academic study and personal experiments. In college, he realized he wanted to work with people and switched majors from Computer Science to Human Performance.
After years of self-training, Craig discovered Jaunty and became Eric's apprentice. Craig has coached people in social dynamics and dating through Jaunty since 2012. When he's not exploring positive psychology and self-development, he enjoys learning about metagames and being outdoorsy with his dad.
Both Eric (Jaunty's founder) and Craig spent thousands of hours experimenting and researching the limits of social behavior to create the tried and tested course material for Jaunty. They are tirelessly dedicated to helping students achieve their goals and become social dynamos.
