I believe professionals possess powerful ideas and talents though they compartmentalize their greatest strengths and do not share them abundantly at work. By learning improvisation techniques and practicing them at work, professionals can change into powerful executives. They can be inspired and work with abundance mindsets. They can enjoy showing up to work. They can feel more free to bring their varied talents into the workplace. I teach ways to make this simple, relate-able and immediately implementable. I do this with a funny, affirming keynote address. Let us play, innovate, create and allow, mindfulness to find its way into a day’s work.
