Creating a Personal Leadership Brand
Consumers need a brand they can depend on. Leaders need a personal brand their employees can trust. Under the guidance of a veteran artist, participants work through an interactive learning experience using arts-based exercises to help build confidence, define and express their personal brand, and engage positively in unforeseen challenges while building team trust and relationships. Participants will develop their personal leadership brand through words, images, and physical exercises.
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 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.
Women in Leadership
Using current cultural research and the actor’s toolkit, professional actors/teaching artists will help you uncover the “character of your best self.” Through activities from the craft of acting, you will 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.
