Inspiring Leaders

Developing Dynamic Leaders
No matter what your profession, this workshop empowers you to be the confident leader that today’s companies require. Using current cultural research and the actor’s toolkit, professional actors/teaching artists help you discover the “character of your best self” by uncovering your strengths and communication skills. You learn how to better use your voice and body language, to shape both people’s perceptions of you and your own perceptions of yourself. Experiment with authentic leadership presence, feedback techniques, networking tricks, and hone your presentation skills. 

High-Speed Creativity

Leading a Collaborative Culture
Improv actors are collaboration masters. Improv, or improvisational theatre, is a craft that demands spontaneity, being “present to partners,” and the ability to accept unexpected “offers” while building on one another’s ideas to create a performance. Through improv exercises, participants will learn to break through internal obstacles to achieve higher levels of collaboration and risk taking—without positional power. Create a culture that differentiates between the need for procedural rigor and the need for balanced participation and iterating ideas.

Directing the Action

Productive Feedback for Creativity
Actors and directors know that feedback is key to turning a vision into a real successful performance. An experienced actor and director will use activities based on a director/actor relationship to reframe neutral observation and feedback as a core practice for both team members and formal leaders. Learn to achieve high performance while boosting engagement and creative contribution.

Leading Ladies

Inspiring Female-Identifying Leaders
Using current cultural research and the actor’s toolkit, professional actors/teaching artists help you uncover the “character of your best self.” Through activities from the craft of acting, you learn how your voice, body language, and intentions help shape people’s perceptions of you and perceptions of yourself. Experiment with authentic leadership presence, feedback techniques, networking tricks, and presentation skills. No matter the profession, this workshop is sure to help empower you to be the confident leader you are meant to be.
