Course description

Women’s Leadership Academy

This is a comprehensive leadership development program. Our multi-layered approach to development is about building awareness, goals, skills, and support. Cohorts of women leaders work together not only to improve themselves, but also improve their organization through projects, networking, and “pay it forward” activities. By immersing themselves in a program over a period of time, they explore both tactical and strategic ways to be the best version of themselves.

What’s different about the ImprovEdge program?

Our improv core allows us to be highly flexible and meet the needs of the specific participants in each program. In addition, we ask the participants to engage in becoming more agile, flexible, and adaptable. They learn the importance of thinking on their feet as a leader, how to improvise when things get tough, and how to leverage the power of a strong team and network. 

This workshop experience is for leaders, executives and all team members. 

Applicable Categories: Diversity, Leadership, Talent Management and more.

We combine improvisation and neuroscience to develop flexible, adaptable, positive leaders and teams. That’s the #ImprovEdge
