Whether you’re navigating your way on a new team, expanding your leadership role, or just trying to get heard in a meeting, you’re facing the kind of workplace challenge we all run into sooner or later: you need a new performance.

Tapping into this ability is key to learning and growing in new, exciting and profound ways. In this engaging and entertaining presentation Salit, author, performer and CEO of Performance of a Lifetime, shares the revolutionary approach that has transformed the work of executives and teams from Fortune 500 companies all over the world with its unusual blending of theater, improvisation, and the new science of performative psychology.
In this webinar, you’ll experience: How performing in your everyday life and work helps you learn, grow, and leadHow listening like an improviser will improve your conversations and relationshipsHow creating with “crap” — the kind you get handed every day — will make you more productive and innovative
Cathy Salit began her career as an upstart and risk-taker at the age of 13, when she dropped out of eighth grade and started an alternative school in an abandoned storefront in New York City. This unusual endeavor put Cathy on an uncharted life path, and she has dedicated her life to creating educational environments that challenge the status quo and offer innovative, high-impact learning and development experiences. She co-founded Performance of a Lifetime (POAL), a consulting firm that helps leaders, teams, and organizations to grow their business by focusing on the human side of strategy. Using the art and science of performance, POAL helps leaders close the gap between the current reality and their desired future. POAL’s team of coaches and human development experts leverage their proprietary method, The Becoming Principle™, to engage leaders and companies in creating and acting on new and uncharted possibilities. As CEO, Cathy works with leaders and teams at companies such as American Express, Nike, Coca Cola, Rolls Royce, The Johns Hopkins Hospital, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Twitter – to name a few. Cathy is the author of Performance Breakthrough: A Radical Approach to Success at Work (Hachette Books), in which she presents her revolutionary approach to learning and growing. She is also an artistic associate at the award-winning Castillo Theatre in New York City, where she performs regularly with the musical improv comedy troupe the Proverbial Loons. Less frequently, she sings jazz and R&B on any stage she can find…or create.
