Overview

 

How Improvisation Improves Creativity and Collaboration

Leadership has never been easy, but today’s leaders face unprecedented challenges: technology shifts, globalization, once-in-a-generation changes in the workforce as baby boomers retire.

Today’s leaders need to be creative, nimble, and adaptive. They need the skills of an improviser to thrive amidst the changes and unknowns that characterize the modern workplace.

What You Will Learn

Join Second City Works for a fun and instructive session where you’ll learn how you can develop the improviser’s toolkit to become a better leader.

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
