Leadership as Improvisation

$10.00

Join WIM on Thursday, October 25, at the Doheny Main Library (DML 240) at Noon, as Carol J. Geffner (Professor of the Practice of Governance, Management and Policy at USC Price) helps us learn from theater and drama to better leadership.

What do actors and business leaders have in common? They both need to improvise. This workshop helps bring together women of all ages and backgrounds, inspiring and empowering them to create positive change in their personal lives, their communities and the world. Leaders today are operating in organizations that face tremendous uncertainty, an accelerated pace of change and disruption. The days of stable and predictable organizations are, for the most part, behind us,” said Geffner. “The willingness to experience discomfort and learn continuously are essential in rapidly changing environments. Improvisation, which comes from the discipline of drama and theater, is designed to put people in situations in which they must be present, feel vulnerable, and learn in the moment.”

Light refreshments will be served. This event is FREE to members, $10 for non-members.

Please make sure to “BOOK NOW” to reserve your spot. If you are a member, please login to receive the discount. You can login either before you add it to your cart or after, just click the option to login rather than checkout as a guest.
