[Webinar] Developing Leadership At Every Level: An Improvisational Approach

March 19, 2020

12:00pm - 1:00pm ET

Webinar presented by Chief Learning Officer. To attend, please register here.

The World Economic Forum has identified creativity, collaboration and adaptability as key skills for the future of work. Increasingly, we are asking for leaders to execute at every level of our organizations, whether it’s in communication with our customers, giving feedback to develop their teams, or co-creating systems across an entire business. Improvisation, uniquely, provides opportunities to playfully practice leadership skills that speak to individuals, teams and organizations - promoting behaviors that are highly collaborative, inclusive, and resilient.

At this webinar, you will learn:

  • Explore the rich history of improvisation as a practical tool for leadership
  • Analyze the underlying behavioral science that supports an improvisational approach
  • Learn the leadership stories of Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert and Keegan-Michael Key
  • Takeaway practices you can implement right away at home and at work

For more information, please visit the Chief Learning Officer portal.
