ellegolightly: I loved this question I just got asked, so I'm posing it to you - if you were invited to teach a college course, what would you name it and what would the curriculum consist of?
Oooo! I love this question!
The course would be called:
Where a Smile can take you - getting through life being tough but not coming across as it
I have been told that I am great with people…and they say it starts with my smile. The value of a smile I feel isn’t really mentioned to people. People who I meet in a bar, on the street, at a party, and in the business world say they want to know me because of my smile. Now, I’m sure and I know people think I am a softy because of that…no the case. the course would consist of on site training of interacting with people and seeing the value of a smile.
I know this sounds cheesy and such…but I have tried it out in the work world…when you ask for something, more money, new carrier path, a favor…if you do it with a smile, people will help you out wholeheartedly. where as if you don’t, if you just ask, demand, throw a temper tantrum…things may get done but only that one time. People may not be willing to help you out again.
I would have them do case studies, surveys, etc.
Its more of a, “how to interact with people in your life” course.
yeah…i believe that would be it.
