Thursday, Mar. 27 | 5:00-6:30 PM | Trabant MPR B
Psychologists often say that a person who is "left-brained" is more logical, analytical, and objective, while a person who is "right-brained" is said to be more creative, emotional, and subjective. Improv for Leaders is a full-blown workshop that shows leaders how they can use the right AND left sides of their brain! Throughout the workshop we will go through many fun, high-energy improvisation games that challenge you to think outside the box and help spark creativity. Each game will teach listening skills, teamwork, leadership, and public speaking in a way that is just downright fun!
