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! There are actually less articles about the economic details of world markets (e.g. globalization of the raw materials market, the transpacific parternship, and the Keystone pipeline) than articles about Social Intelligence topics! Tweets by @StanfordBiz So what’s your SIQ? It’s your social intelligence quotient. It’s like an IQ for social skills. Harvard offers you a small online quiz that you can check out here all about reading the emotions through the eyes. Another business mogul created a social intelligence quiz for you to rate yourself here. Here is another emotional intelligence test, which is closely related to Social Intelligence. Why is this skill important? Well, you must establish a “connection” with someone if you’re ever going to find out how they really feel about a topic or their opinion about a situation. The word describing this “connection” is RAPPORT. If you have the goal of forming a bloc or establishing an alliance, well then you NEED rapport (Here’s an article on Rapport if you’ve never heard of it. Or you can get our book since we teach you how to establish and maintain rapport!). If you want to change someone’s mind or influence their opinion, you’ll never succeed without rapport. And you’ll never know that you’re in rapport if you don’t know anything about social intelligence. We call it MUN-E (pronounced MONEY), because it’s the most valuable skill we can teach....

We’re on Amazon!

Have you seen our book yet? Have you browsed the table of contents and our form of prose? Do it on Amazon now! We’ve talked to hundreds of students and helped dozens win their first awards. We’ve done it for middle school, high school, and college teams. We’ve deconstructed the game of Model UN and synthesized the skills that make an impact on your fellow delegates. We have also shown our students how those skills make them better with their teachers, their friends, and even people with whom they’re dying to make a good first impression. In our book, we teach from a different perspective about negotiation and debate. We teach you how to demonstrate leadership. We’ve given talks to teach how to network, be more confident, and how to be a charismatic speaker. Yes, the skills you practice in Model UN will even work in interviews and auditions. Life is a process of “becoming.” Becoming better, becoming more mature, becoming strong, evolving, ascending, etc. We named our book “MUN-E” (pronounced MONEY) because this process of “becoming” is the most powerful, VALUABLE skill you can ever learn. Model UN is just the perfect place to practice this skill. Not only does it give you more awareness of your own SELF and the people who are listening to you, but it also is a GLOBAL Activity! International Relations will be a fixture in the future of our world’s economy, politics, and education. Model UN is the perfect venue to better understand the entire world! Get MUN-E now!

Charisma 101 – A video Lesson

I was asked to come into my old school and give the newcomers some sage advice on basics for General Assemblies and “being noticed.” I gave about 45 minutes of a talk on Charisma and Presence. Most of the material you’ll see in the following videos are from Chapters 2 & 3 of our book. Can you imagine what’s in the other 8 chapters…?

How to be Social…

Posted by on Jul 13, 2012 in Lessons, MUN-E, Social Skills | 268 comments

This is the first subtitle of our book… And I must admit, it is the most oft misunderstood. Being “social” is simply the easiest phrase to describe being easy to talk to. Some of us are incredibly talented at this trait with no careful training… And as a result they have many friends, they communicate their desires, and they tend to get along better with adults as well. When these social “naturals” are also aware of the reactions of their peers, they are primed for creating networks without even knowing it. Luckily for them, their interactions were always beneficial to themselves and seemed mature and impressive to their teachers and employers. Some of us are not so lucky. We have recognized these “naturals” since we started school. We looked up to them even though we didn’t know why. These colleagues were superficially called popular, or sociable, or funny. We noticed that these classmates of ours were well-liked and were not self-conscious. Some of us have a natural proclivity to think much more than we need to… And sometimes that is our only hindrance. But if we were taught a few tips and tricks, we’d be even more social than the “naturals” we look up to. And with a little practice, we’d be able to use social rules to our benefit!! And we’d do it better than our social peers because they don’t even understand what they’re doing, regardless of how it benefits them. Then you wouldn’t just be social, you’d be socially intelligent! This is what we...
