You’re Killing It

You’ve Got Prowess, you’ve got sass and you’re ready.We’re looking at you. Adulting School is located in Portland, Maine where we hold live events/classes/webinars.

We look for the best, brightest and most entertaining (sometimes that’s us) to teach what we need to know to feel like we’re #adulting at our best.

Our classes are relaxed, where you may be able to have a drink and a nosh and not feel the pressure that “school” has been in the past.

Keep checking back for our latest and greatest. OR join our campus where we regularly update event information as well.

If you live in Maine you know that the winters are long and unpredictable so we hunker down in front of the fire, or we find video of a yule log and drink hot toddies either way.

We are planning great things for April and beyond.

In the meantime we will be holding online workshops and webinars!

Compassionate Communication

Adulting School presents…

Compassionate Communication



<style="font-weight: 400;">sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others.


From family to sales, from political discussions to things as simple as talking to customer service. are we truly connecting?  Often we forget, communication is more than words.

Through acting exercises, games, interactive fun and sometimes emotional connecting, you’ll learn skills to engage in communication that takes you from talking AT each other to talking TO each other.  You’ll learn how to pay attention to subtleties and non verbal communication.

These skills are universal! Are you afraid of conflict or have trouble speaking your truth? Maybe you’re in sales or customer service; there will be something here for everyone.

To note: All classes are filmed for use on our website.  In this particular class, we will have a national news outlet filming.  It’s possible you may be asked for an interview.


Our HUGE thanks to The Portland Club for sponsoring this event!
