With Holland, you will learn what your body language communicates, ways to interpret non-verbal cues, methods to develop rapport, techniques to pique interest, tips to listen rather than hear, when to ditch email, how to close, and much, much more. Under Holland’s tutelage, subtleties suddenly become signals and you will leave feeling more connected than you ever have before.
