Improvisation and Leadership: Teaching Your Leaders Positive and Effective Behaviors for Employee Engagement
Speaker: Karen Hough
One of the biggest challenges for leaders today is effectively engaging teams so that employees can manage change, innovate, and remain flexible. Keeping employees engaged, positive, and focused has a great deal to do with the day-to-day actions and reactions of leadership. Join Karen Hough, CEO of ImprovEdge, for an interactive session on the use of improvisational behaviors as effective leadership tools for employees and organizations. Improvisers manage risk, constant change, and uncertainty, and are able to take advantage of the unexpected.
You will learn:
* four critical techniques of improvisation that can be easily translated to corporate environments
* case studies of how these simple tools have supported collaborative and effective teams (for example, Coca-Cola Enterprises)
* ways to model and teach more proactive leader behaviors
* further resources to integrate the flexibility of improvisation into your working environment.
