Making small talk is one of the most challenging types of speaking to master in any language. This can be particularly true with people in a position of authority, such as a faculty advisor, department chair, work supervisor, or future employer. In this workshop, you will practice skills and strategies to effectively interact with powerful people, including turn-taking strategies, active listening, and sources for sample conversations. Learn how to appear friendly and confident at a job interview, or confident and insightful in a research group meeting. Please come prepared to practice with other participants.
