Act Like A Leader: Lessons from Laughter

90 minute workshop.

Using volunteers from the audience, this workshop teaches “five lessons from improv comedy” that are essential to improv performances and can be applied in everyday life as well.  After a quick presentation to the group as a whole, the volunteers will be coached through several “short form” comedy games, followed by brief discussion to reinforce the leadership lessons enacted by participants.

Key takeaways include:
1) discussion of the impact of an open, positive mindset
2) an appreciation of the importance of making everyone in a team look good (ie, the importance of focussing on the success of a goal rather than the success of oneself as an individual)
3) a framework for improving emotional intelligence – how to listen and respond more effectively by honing in on emotional communications rather than the words spoken
