Creating a Collaborative Culture [$] Preconference/Institute Las Vegas Convention Center

Description :

Rewards or threats. Our brains look for them five times a second. That's the root of many difficult workplace situations. Come learn the transformative power of reframing failure, the true meaning of "yes and" and the kinds of listening that changes lives. In this session, we'll use applied improvisation to go from passive-aggressive to assertive, from blame to "I'm game." Instead of hearing, "It's not my job!", you'll start hearing, "How do we do it?"
