Brands Corporate Office, 1900 Colonel Sanders Lane, Louisville, KY 40213 (Tech Center A-E).
“We are thrilled to present this fantastic learning opportunity for both our Chapter members and non-members interested in growing their careers,” comments Dr. Kathy Gosser, NAWMBA Louisville President. “We have a large pool of female professionals living in the greater Louisville metro area that will greatly benefit from this exciting program.”
Founder & CEO of ImprovEdge and the Amazon #1 Bestselling Author, Karen Hough, will present a high-energy, interactive keynote on four improv secrets that can radically improve leadership capabilities. Improvisers think on their feet and manage extremely well in risky situations. The surprise is that the little-known techniques of improvisers can create incredible performance and build trust for leaders, teams and organizations. Using humor, exercises, and case studies, such as her work with Coca-Cola Enterprises, Ms. Hough will teach immediately useable skills to improve how others perceive you, improve communication and build better relationships. And good relationships are everything in business.
You will walk out with:
• 3 techniques to manage difficult conversations in a positive way
• Tips to connect with people both up and down your reporting chain
• New ways to listen and communicate with impact
• Understand the critical importance of body language
Ms. Hough will answer questions after the presentation. Every attendee will receive a signed copy of the book: The Improvisation Edge: Secrets to Building Trust and Radical Collaboration at Work.
