The TA-DA of Leadership and Teamwork
Thursday, February 23

We are all improvising. We face challenges, disruption, change, and obstacles without a script or rehearsal. To find success, we need to work together, build trust, and create opportunity. During this session, Joel will discuss how the tenets of improvisation create successful teams. Joel has spent the past 30 years performing and teaching the lessons of improvisation.
