Embracing Your Inner Superhero
Leadership demands many different skills and traits such as communication, listening, accountability, inspiration, creativity, passion, focus, and leading by example. As leaders, we must bring our superhero to work with us everyday in order to achieve our goals. What happens if your inner superhero takes a week off – or even a day? How productive and profitable are you and your team? How does this affect your personal time or family life? By using the principles of improvisational comedy, I will demonstrate how you can unleash your inner superhero on a daily basis and maintain high energy and productivity at work and at home.
