What is Transformational Communication (TC)?

TC combines conversational intelligence with narrative intelligence. In other words, it’s all about upgrading your speaking and storytelling skills so you can move confidently into your future, and make a bigger difference in the world. It’s about…

Impact. Influence. Vision. Change.

And it all happens in UCSD’s virtual reality online platform, allowing for lots of interaction to build your skills.

Interaction is the bedrock for building your transformational communication skills. Because you can’t upgrade your communication skills by reading a book, listening to a PowerPoint recording, or talking to yourself.

By the time you’re done You’ll:

  1. Hone your conversational intelligence and narrative intelligence to leap forward at work.

  2. Focus on applying and testing your transformational communication and narrative skills at work in real time

  3. Craft at least 5 different transformational stories in class along with an influential presentation.

  4. Walk away with at least 9 different story structures to use that allow you to shine, spur decision making, enroll people in your project, product, or service, tell the data story, and amplify your vision.

  5. Learn my storytelling hacks to make story crafting and delivery tons easier

  6. Leave the course equipped with tools, experiences, and resources that you will rarely receive anywhere else.

Use Virtual Reality to build your skills!

During the entire 9-week class we use the VirBela virtual reality platform. Each week in class activities you work together in small groups or with partners to build your skills right then and there.
