The NIR School program puts a strong emphasis on teamwork. Therefore, the school has made it a point to address key issues in social interactions by engaging the students in social skills workshops. Drawing from the field of social psychology, these workshops seek to provide participants with common tools for analyzing human behavior in the social setting.

The students participate in a series of specially tailored workshops on topics such as interpersonal and intergroup communication, leadership, social perception and social attitudes. The workshops do not attempt to cover these topics in full, however they do lay down the foundations for the students to have a clearer understanding of some of the situations that they come across inside the NIR program and outside it.
