Follow Your Dreams: Event 2 - Off Script: Mastering the Art of Business Improv
Thursday, March 03, 2022, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM EST
Category: Women Business Owners

Going OFF SCRIPT doesn't come naturally to most organizational leaders. We want to control the narrative, ensure ideal outcomes, script the conversations, manage the problems, predict the future, and win (negotiations, new business, market share, and more). But what it good leaders could become better leaders by doing the opposite -- by letting go of the control, by going "off script" in their conversations and negotiations, by being present instead of rushing to the future, and by collaborating in authentic, empathetic ways.

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Embracing the philosophy of "Yes! And"
  • Recognize that over preparing is the key
  • Read the audience and be prepared to go "Off Script"
  • Implement the strategy of "listen to understand'
  • Develop an adaptability strategy
  • Design a collaborative culture and trust your team
  • Value taking risks
