Who should attend? Students should plan to participate as a team: think council or chapter executive boards, committees, or even as cross-council peers. Professionals can also participate with their student leaders.

World-class improviser Galen Emanuele works with organizations to create a “Yes, And” culture to skyrocket communication, leadership and establish cohesive, highly engaged teams. In this program, he'll highlight the best practices of self-management, collaboration, responsibility, openness to change, and effective communication to foster productive, high-performing teams. Through thought-provoking activities aimed at enhancing leadership, building cohesive team cultures, and navigating conflict, you'll come away with actionable skills and tools to change the way you approach leadership as a team.

By attending this workshop, your team will:

  • Understand how to communicate and influence others with the tools of “Yes, And.”
  • Learn to be present, connected, and fully engaged in their communications.
  • Embrace a collaborative team culture of support and strive to make others look good.
  • Adapt positively to change, be receptive to new ideas, and navigate conflict more easily.
