We look forward to welcoming you to a very supportive environment to improve your communication skills. This course will involve relaxation/mediation exercises, enjoyable and tricky exercises, and plenty of opportunity for exposure in giving improvised and prepared speeches in front of an audience. ANTI FRAGILE "Some things benefit from shocks; they thrive and grow when exposed to volatility, randomness, disorder, and stressors and love adventure, risk and uncertainty. \'Anti fragility\' is beyond resilience or robustness. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the anti fragile gets better." In our lives, we strive to be resilient and robust, strong and sharp enough to withstand discomfort and stresses - like the nerves and doubts we have about our capabilities and self-worth. But embracing disorder and uncertainty is damaging for our ego and need for stability. We know deep down that these difficult, unfamiliar experiences are what help us to grow and develop the most. In one sense we should craving disorder and welcome getting kicked and thrown around. We should aspire not just to withstand and endure challenges unchanged like an immovable object - but to be a better person, and a greater force after this temporary adversity. The more we push ourselves, the more pressure we put on our skills and self-image - the more the fragile glass turns into a beautiful, robust diamond. In the course we will explore resilience and anti-fragility in communication and confidence.
