C o u r s e M o d u l e s
Class One: Status and Confidence
Understanding yourself better is the best place to start. Everyone's natural personality traits differ from each other. We focus on building internal status and self-confidence using our natural strengths. We learn why the “mildly uncomfortable zone” is a great place to be. We practice high status behaviors such as strong eye contact, body language, and conversation techniques to overcome and manage social tension.
Class Two: Voice, Assertiveness and Rapport Building
Our voice is one of our most powerful tools for connecting with people, yet a lot of us sell ourselves short by speaking too quickly or quietly. In this class we learn how to raise our internal status and presence with our voices. We also build on our empathy skills by practicing genuine listening and responsiveness, and learn the importance of emotion in creating a personal connection. We then practice our assertiveness skills, such as expressing ourselves boldly and navigating difficult conversations while respecting others.
Class Three: Approach and Conversational Agility
Striking up a conversation with a complete stranger is one of the greatest social challenges. By focusing on the approach and introductions, we become more comfortable with this critical step in meeting new people while making great first impressions. In this class we learn techniques for the “direct approach” and universal, conversational structures for talking with new people, including “weaving,” a surefire method to keep a conversation going while building a deeper connection.
Class Four: Humor
High status humor is a way to play with the world around us. This is one of the quickest ways to build attraction and make conversations more enjoyable. In this class we learn different comedic formulas including character humor. We learn how to work a room and how to handle any reaction with finesse. We discover the concept of “frame”, which unlocks the power of influence, and we learn to build “social proof”, making you approachable and more dynamic to others.
Class Five: Magnetism and Charisma
In this class we experiment with more intimate communication and storytelling, involving the five senses. We learn about sexual communication and how to walk the fine line between overtly sensual and completely neutral. We play with touch and learn how physical closeness helps us connect with others, including people whom you may already know and want to build deeper relationships with. This class teaches warmth and explores complimenting and accepting compliments, how to raise other peoples’ status and reward systems, relationship investment and management.
Class Six: Mental Pattern Shifting and Belief Systems
At some point or another, we’ve all let our fears hold us back. In this final class, using our real world experiences that we accumulated throughout the class, we investigate what old beliefs and fears we’re still hanging on to, and use the practices of pattern interruption, acceptance and commitment, gradual exposure and cognitive behavioral therapy to blow them up and put them behind us.
What people are saying about the course:
Social skills can be learned, and individuals can improve upon their social skills without erasing their personalities in the process. The Jaunty team says it's all about building upon what's already there and finding ways to smooth out kinks while spinning idiosyncrasies into points of strength.

I cannot show more appreciation to Eric, Craig, Ann Marie and Jan. They spent their time, efforts to help us be more social and conquering our social anxiety. . . I'm able to connect to people in a different way, less judgmental and more welcoming. . . I'm so happy to talk to a new person everyday after Jaunty. All alumni are friendly. Come check them out!
Jaunty is awesome! I was fortunate enough to stop by at one of the free classes with no intent at all of taking the course. I learned so much that it was just a no-brainer. We invest so much money in so many various walks of life without batting an eye, but with social interactions + learning about ourselves, we spend next to nothing and its arguably 10x more important and impactful. Give Jaunty a try and don't look back. I took the class over two years ago and it still makes a huge impact on my day to day now.
I have been looking for ways to improve my social anxiety: classes online, voice coaches, and tons of research on toastmasters. I finally found Jaunty! This is the REAL DEAL! . . . This class is a bargain. I have taken so many courses in my life, and for the quality and thoroughness you get at Jaunty, it's truly an incredible find. Additionally, once you go through the class, you gain access to an entire Jaunty Alumni group who are awesome, supportive, over achievers. I definitely recommend 100% for everyone to take this course - the sooner the better!
Absolutely love the Jaunty 6-week class. Being shy, I've done improv, acting, comedy, Toastmasters, and mediation. This class is the most direct and effective. Within weeks, I was comfortable approaching strangers, having fun impromptu conversations, making them laugh. Eric's sense of humor and positivity are infectious. One of the most unique and useful part of this class is the social network for students. Not only do students get together several times a week to practice, even after the class is over, Craig and alumni continue to organize practice sessions and social events. This is one of the most fun and useful classes I've taken.
