About the webinar
“Yes, and…?” is the hallmark of improv comedy. It’s also key to our growth as leaders. What if we said, “Yes, and…?” when approached about taking a leadership role in an organization?
For many of us, our first reaction to leadership requests are, “No, because…,” or perhaps, “There’s no way I can do that!” We live in an increasingly fast-paced culture with many opportunities on which to spend our time. Many of us can be quite guarded when considering external commitments. Sometimes being guarded is warranted because of our current level of obligations; sometimes we just have an automatic “No” response. We know what saying “no” provides us: security, peacefulness, free time, and a comfort zone.
Let’s look at what saying, “Yes, and…?” has done for me and what it may do for you.
We will be recording the webinar, so feel free to enjoy the presentation knowing that you can see the recording at a later date.
The content will be introductory (e.g., > “101 level”) and will also be valuable to practitioner level attendees.
