October 5, 2022 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Let’s face it. So many of us have lost friends or gotten just a bit more awkward over these past few years. In this 60-minute lecture, you’ll learn to teach your clients to reverse these tides of disconnection and learn science-backed strategies to make friends. I’ve written a book, Platonic, on making and keeping friends and I will share its secrets. You’ll learn my 4-step IDEA model to make friends: Initiate, Disclose, Expose, and Affirm. Coaches will leave the webinar able to build better relationships with clients and help them find connection.
