Social Nerd Coaching - Task Force Program
Social awkwardness or social anxiety is not something that you can just take a pill or potion for. That's not enough. It requires work, a change of mindset, skills and people who support you.
That's why you can join the Social Nerd Task Force program.
Best of both worlds
The fastest way to improve at anything is by training new skills, discussing what you learn and getting personal feedback from a coach. That's what the Task Force program does. It combines personal coaching with group learning.
During these 10 weeks we'll alternate between personal 1-on-1 coaching sessions and group sessions in which we discuss a specific set of social skills.
On top of that you'll also get a buddy (a fellow Task Force member). This is somebody who will help you through the tough times, and vice versa. You'll be in touch each week to discuss your progress, challenges and successes.
The personal sessions and group sessions will alternate:
Week 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9: Personal coaching
Week 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10: Group learning session
Learning is trying, getting feedback and getting help when you get stuck.
A coach can help you with all these parts.
A good coach gets you unstuck, talks you through the tough times and celebrates success with you.
That's why personal coaching is part of the Task Force program.
What does a session look like?
A session is 1-1,5 hours of walking and talking. We discuss your progress and your challenges.
And I ask questions. Tough questions. Questions that get you to think and that give you new insights.
In Rotterdam. There are various spots in Rotterdam where you can walk and talk without bumping into people.
Session 1: Confidence
Confidence is key. You can learn all the social skills you want, but unless you build your confidence you won't be able to use any of it. That's why the first group session is about your confidence.
Session 2: Starting a conversation
Yikes! Actually talking to people, whether they're family, coworkers or random strangers... What do you say to start a conversation? How do you see who is even open to talking?
How do you break that loop shown on the right?
Session 3: Keeping conversations going
Great, you've started a conversation thanks to week 4. Now, how do you keep it going? What do you do to make sure it doesn't die out in 5 minutes? We'll be looking into that in week 5.
Session 4: Body language
60% of your communication with other people happens non verbally: it's the stuff you don't say that can make all the difference. In this group session you'll learn how you can use body language to feel and act more confident, how to make a better impression on people and how to pick up on important signals.
Session 5: Flexible
The contents of this last group session are flexible. What you will learn here depends on your own questions and those of your fellow Task Force members. It can range from public speaking to pitching to dating, or a different topic that you come up with, of course.
The group sessions will be done at a location in Rotterdam.
More than just another program
The Task Force program is more than just another program.
Besides the personal coaching and the group sessions there is also a fun aspect to it: doing fun stuff together.
Throughout the program there are 5 different activities that you can choose to join in.
The activities are related to what you'll learn in the program, but also to have fun together!
The price of these activities is part included in the price of the program.
Why "Task Force"?
Because I think it sounds cool.
Of course I could have named this program "group coaching" or "group learning", but that would be boring as hell.
That's why it's called the Social Nerd Coaching Task Force.
And hey, it's much more interesting to be able to say that you're part of a Task Force than taking part in a group session on social awkwardness right?
Who is this program for?
The Task Force program is for nerds who are really dedicated to beating their social awkwardness.
The program will be challenging, require at least 2 hours per week, require in-person meetings and most important of all: your effort.
You have to be willing to change. You have to want to improve. You have to want to work at it, even if it get tough (and it will).
I firmly believe that if you complete this program your life will change. Yes, that might sound woo-woo, but it's not.
Thanks to better social skills it's like you suddenly unlock a part of life that you couldn't access.
You can go to events without being nervous.
You can talk to people with confidence.
You can speak up in your team.
You can make friends.
But only if you really work it. Otherwise this is a waste of both our times.
Who is this program NOT for?
If you recognize any of the characteristics down below, then please do NOT apply for this program:
- Not really motivated to change
- Like to play the victim card
- Believe you can't change anyway
- Think you have nothing to learn
- Not willing to confront yourself
- Think you don't have to do anything
The Task Force program is only for people who really want to change their social life.
If that's you, perfect. If not, then this program isn't for you.
The Task Force program is not cheap. There, I said it.
Your investment is €2.999.
That's a lot of money.
Because it's worth it. And because I believe that investing in yourself is the best one you can make.
It also means that only serious people will be joining you for this program. You will only get people as motivated as you in your Task Force.
You only want to work with motivated people, and so do I.
So if you're ready, then let's go.
The next Task Force program will start in January 2019.
There will only be room for 6 people. We want to give you the attention you deserve.
Leave your details below and we'll be in touch as soon as possible.
