Improvisation in the Workplace, Humor Leadership themes for February UW-Green Bay Workshop
GREEN BAY – The Wisconsin Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay is offering “Leading with Humor and Improvisation” for small business owners and their team members as well as supervisors and executives within any organization.
The one-day workshop on Tuesday, February 23, is presented by corporate trainer and comic Liysa Callsen, who has trained at Second City in Chicago. Improv and its “Yes and” mentality is being taught in many university business curriculums and has been touted in recently Forbes and Fast Company as good business training. Humor Leadership is an essential success skill at work and has been known to improve workplace productivity. Participants in this very interactive workshop will learn how to bond with team members, accept criticism, avoid rejecting ideas, and increase productivity.
The workshop can earn credit toward a certificate in Supervisory Leadership and will start at 8:30 a.m. and end at 3:30 .p.m at the Advance Business & Manufacturing Center at 2701 Larsen Road in Green Bay. Fees include materials, lunch and morning and afternoon refreshments.
