What you'll learn in this leadership training:

One of the top reasons our female clients take our improv class is to develop leadership skills. Unfortunately, a lot of them think they have to pretend to be someone they aren’t, and develop qualities that aren’t innately part of who they are. The reality is, most of us have those coveted leadership skills already, it’s simply a matter of honing our style, reading a situation, and knowing when to bring out active listening (always) and when to focus in on things like motivation, responsibility, and delegation.

Great leaders have mastered communication skills, and that’s our first focus in this class designed specifically for women who are in leadership roles or want to be in leadership roles. After connecting with communication, we’ll explore other aspects of leadership like how to give effective feedback, when to be positive (and when to be realistic), and how to develop creativity with your team, all through interactive activities. We’ll have an open discussion of challenges and struggles, as well as celebratory moments for everyone coming out and committing to improvement.

This class is great for current and aspiring leaders – you’ll leave with a greater understanding of your personal style, strengths and areas of growth, as well as activities for you and your team, to continue to grow and develop. Aside from communication skills, one thing is absolute about great leaders – they are always growing, and encouraging growth.

While we understand that life happens, we ask that you attend each session in a multi-week session, unless extreme life circumstances mean that you absolutely must make up a date during a future session. Our multi-week sessions are structured to allow the class participants to grow together, and inconsistent attendance and drop-ins make the awesome bonding that happens a little harder!

The instructor is wonderful! The class had interesting improv exercises, but I was hoping for more discussion of our struggles. I work at an executive level of management so a lot of the advice was a bit basic for me. All in all this is a great class for new leaders and those hoping to move up in their careers - you’ll definitely be supported by a good group of women.

I had never taken a management/leadership class before, so I really didn't know what to expect. I also didn't think it would be as enlightening and fun as it was. It was a great space to share our own personal experiences in the workplace, and learn from each other's experiences and ideas. Thank you for encouraging us to open up and be creative!

It was a good class but it was focused primarily on the non-verbal aspects of leadership - body language, posture, facial expressions, tone etc. I was looking for something more cerebral so it wasn’t a good fit for me.
