OVERVIEWLet’s face it: we suck at talking to people. We just suck. And it feels like we’re getting worse. We’re more polarized, less tolerant, more in our heads, and less vulnerable.
So, conversations can feel, well, hard. Which is why we teamed up with Jad Abumrad, who has spent the past 20 years building some of the biggest public radio shows and podcasts out there to create a whole new experience. How to Talk to a Human gets to the core of having easy, impactful, and productive 1-on-1 exchanges. We’ll practice listening, dealing with adversity, and sharing unique and different points of view to make you a better manager, colleague, friend, and overall human.
GO DEEP WITH YOUR TEAM
Skip the small talk that can be so pervasive in the workplace and ask and answer thoughtful and meaningful questions one-on-one with your teammates.
DISCOVER YOUR BLOCKS
We all have them. Perceptions or beliefs about how we should show up, what other people think about you, or how you view others. We'll dive into the impact of those perceptions, and offer tools on how to shift them.
LEARN TO (REALLY) LISTEN
It is so easy, and often expected, in today's world to do 10 things at once, that true presence and active listening have become not only rare, but difficult to practice. This course gives you the space to pratice in real time with your team, and some tips on how to bring these skills into your daily life.

“"How to Talk to a Human was a fun opportunity to have conversations with people we don't work with day to day and don't normally get to have conversations with. The Weve platform is engaging, utilizing different presentation styles and activities to keep it interesting. It left us with much to think about and consider regarding communications in our work and personal lives."”
