Tuesday, April 26th from 6pm to 8pm McKenzie 240C - 'Yes, and' Your Way To Change: Leadership Through Improv
Yes, and Your Way To Change! is a workshop about learning leadership through improv exercises and ice breaker activities. In improv acting, it doesnt matter what the question is, the answer is always ‘yes, and.' By answering ‘yes, and,' you create support for the idea and build it into something better than the original.
The use of Improv is a trusted and fun way to build teamwork, encourage positive and open communication and facilitate leadership skill development. Through highly participatory exercises, people will see what happens when they listen, focus on supporting others, keep ideas alive, take risks and make new connections. Join us as to learn what Yes, and really means!
RSVP to Lexi Stickel by April 22nd, 2011 at email@example.com.
