The Courses

There is a way for you to help your children to be happier and more successful without losing your sanity in the process. You can if the process is Simple, Active, Fun, and Effective (I call it the S-A-F-E approach). That’s precisely what Foundations of Communications offers!

Class 4 – Know how to connect, Part 1 – Sending messages and hitting our targets

Class 5 – Know how to connect, Part 2 – Meeting & greeting others


Class 6 – Know how you sound to others – vocal clarity

Class 7 – Vocal variation – sounding your best to others

Class 8 – People listening – observing what others sound like

Class 9 – Finding your voice with others

Class 10 – Meeting strangers, interviewing others

And here’s just a sampling of other classes we are considering:

  • How to make small talk and make it count
  • How to keep yourself interesting (hint: you already are)
  • Etiquette… anything less would be uncivilized
  • Be heard and remembered
  • Remembering names (most people struggle with this one so it’s a life skill worth mastering)
  • Joke telling (telling jokes well is a practiced art)
  • Sleep: why you need it and how to do it well
  • The importance of exercise to social competence, academic performance, body image and self-esteem
  • Perfection, the enemy of your success

… the list goes on and on. My team has more than 100 concepts on our to-do list. The best part is that as a member of the FOC community, you’ll have direct input on selecting and suggesting classes! I look forward to hearing what topics are most important to you and your children.
