Katie Goodman uses her 8 Tools Of Improv Comedy to create fun, lively and interactive keynotes, leading her audience through exercises specifically focused on helping participants connect, gain confidence, and adapt to change. Skills of improv include: collaboration, not being “thrown” by the unexpected, discovering how constraint breeds creativity, and adopting a culture of “yes, and!” Attendees will learn how to excavate their authentic selves, cultivate flexibility and gain confidence.

Have you ever had that moment when you’re laughing together at work and you think, “This is why I like working here.” As leaders, it’s our authentic moments of sharing and humor that make us relatable and allow us to build trust quickly and deeply with employees. These are the moments when they see who we really are. In this interactive keynote, you will learn to connect with the most authentic part of yourself so that you can better engage with people as a leader at work and in life.

Our Inner Critic keeps us from reaching our potential and living our best life. In a company, it keeps people from taking creative and innovative leaps, from supporting each other, and slows down progress. We can learn to transform our Inner Critic to a helpful Inner Coach that blazes the way for our personal growth and allows us to show up fully and reach our potential.

Nothing exciting or new happens in business or life without creative risks. Improv games and exercises inspire teams to become people who are comfortable taking creative risks for our businesses and personal lives and to end up with something new and brilliant. We are all being called upon to work in new and innovative ways now. Katie will teach your employees how

Adapting and innovating as you move forward is crucial for a business and for our personal lives in a quickly-changing world. Katie will lead you through learning how to actually love the stages of being lost and the thrill of coming out the other side with new ideas and ready for action.

For all women — leaders, employees, teams, and individuals — this is the time we’ve been waiting for. Katie will teach you How to Own Your Authentic Voice and support other women through collaboration, the “Yes And” Principle, and speaking up.
