What’s your SIQ?

If you haven’t heard of “Social Intelligence”, you’re behind the ball… and a few good reads or youtube videos about it is a must! On the @StanfordBiz twitter feed, you can scroll through the topics… and you’ll notice how many are related to personal confidence, public speaking, emotional control, reflection, etc. This is STANFORD BUSINESS SCHOOL!

No more Powerpoint! Visualize!!

In today’s world, we’ve got lots of information to give our audience… whether it’s in school, business, science, or a crisis.

No matter what profession our Model UN graduates pursue, their practices in committee AND outside committee are fertile grounds for becoming incredible contributors to the future! Not only is this topic so...

Body Language is UNIVERSAL!

For example, let’s take the simple example of four people debating a serious topic. Look at this picture:  You can assume a few things just by witnessing the position of these four people who are discussing their positions: Speaker #2 is not leading the conversation. Speaker #3 is trying to respectful to Speaker #2 by being...
