How to impress and inspire in real life
#communicationskills #personalbranding #nofilter
Ever got stuck in an elevator with your hero? Why practice your pitch when life will probably never give you this opportunity, or you will be too star-struck to find the right words anyway if you do? Meanwhile, we're moving towards a life where our human interaction consists of Slack chats, What'sapp messages and swipes. However, we can't convince one to give us a job, desired promotion or a shot at spending the night together just based on some ones and zeros or memes. In real life chemistry or 'click' can't be forced, but the impression, feeling and perception you leave behind are alterable variables. Are you being judged by the right cover? And how do you get the most out of your water cooler convos?
Whether you have a job interview, are mingling at a networking event or just have a date, first impressions are important. In a time where small talks are replaced by checking our phones and judge one on their Google hits, the window to leave a good impression in person becomes limited. However, trust and goodwill, the foundation of relationships, are based on our face-to-face interaction. During this workshop you will learn how to inspire in conversation using tools you always have at hand: your body, voice and imagination.
This workshop is organized in collaboration with vocal coach Joep Hegger, founder of The Vocal Coach. After achieving great success with a series of workshops in Amsterdam and Berlin together, 3310 is happy to continue this partnership with Joep to help people finding their confidence simply with the means they're born with.
How to give and take feedback as a pro
#crossgeneration #gettingthingsdone #nomorebabyphotosplease
"You're the future, teach us how to use the internet! Oh wait, don't bother, because you're just a spoiled, ignorant graduate who was still in your nappies while I was doing real labor". These, often unreasonable, expectations of millennials challenge us to confront our superiors over and over again. While our education lacked classes on 'how to talk to stubborn baby boomers', we have also not been taught how to get through to that apathetic colleague without sounding like a broken record. Nor how to tell your manager you're not interested in joining their office politics. Or even just to tell your partner in crime to stop sending you baby photos while still staying BFF's. Why don't they speak (your name here), so you can just do your thang?
Miscommunication and misguided expectations are fatal for a company's productivity level, and more importantly cost you a lot of energy. The lack of listening and interpretation skills of your peers might spoil your mood, and as millennial to have to deal with the frustration of being misunderstood by the older generations is as prevalent. With proper feedback mechanisms tailored to different types of persons you can make sure you keep your cool even in the most heated arguments. Therefore, during this workshop we will focus on how to talk the language of different personalities, reading critical feedback and giving feedback for mutual benefits.
This workshop is organized in collaboration with change management expert and coach Jorn Fokkens of Human Foundation. Having worked together in the corporate industry and continued the collaboration with successful classes for 3310, we are happy to progress into a new mission: Transforming the corporate industry into people oriented organizations.

How to build relationships and your killer network from scratch
#networkingskills #buildrelationships #stopthesmalltalk
"So... what do you do?" Don't you sometimes just want to shoot yourself at these awkward office lunch breaks / network events / boring house parties you got dragged into? Even though you have heard this question for the millionth time, you hear yourself repeat this, because you just can't find a socially accepted alternative for it. And once you have passed the usual chit-chat, how do you bring up a deep and meaningful about your unresolved pain over the death of Jon Snow without scaring them off? Or why talk at all when you can just lurk at their Insta profiles and save yourself from rejection?
Although our technology makes it possible to reconnect with our kindergarten lovers, being glued to our smartphones makes us more disconnected from people. When we work more from home, hit the gym alone, shut ourselves off with our headphones, opportunities to meet real people become scarce. Living without real life support can bring down our self esteem and increases stress, spiraling us further into a dark, lonely space. According to researchers Reeves and Kennedy (via The Guardian, 2017) loneliness could be as damaging to our health as smoking fifteen cigarettes a day. So much for a happy ending... Whether it is making new friends at the bus stop or finding fellow change makers at your next work conference, we benefit from knowing how to build true, authentic relationships. During this workshop you will learn how to step out of your shell, upgrade your social skills and build a meaningful network.
