UNC Executive Development white paper features Performance of a Lifetime

The consulting firm Performance of a Lifetime (POAL) is featured in a new white paper published by UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School entitled,  Leadership Agility: Using Improv to Build Critical Skills. Authored by Kip Kelly, Director of Marketing & Business Development for UNC’s Executive Development, the paper points to innovators in the field of Executive Development, and reports on POAL’s use of improvisation in training talent management professionals. He quotes Institute faculty and POAL CEO Cathy Salit, who explains:

“We use improvisation to establish an environment in which we can move executives out of their comfort zones and support them in taking risks, embracing their mistakes and exercising their creativity. Their abilities, mind-sets and behavioral repertoires expand and the process of professional and personal transformation begin.”
