Creating a “Yes, And” Culture

May 1st, 2018 1:00pm - 3:30pm

The Shift Yes Conference will transform the way attendees interact and show up within their teams and organization. Participants gain skills to implement the improv concept of “Yes, And” to strengthen communication, heighten leadership, as well as contribute to and drive a team culture of high-level performance and engagement.

As a result of attending the conference participants will:

  • Understand how to communicate and influence others with the tools of “Yes, And.”
  • Learn to be present, engaged, and skillfully listen in their communications.
  • Establish a collaborative team environment of support where people strive to make others look good and take accountability for how they impact each other.
  • Drive a work culture that adapts positively to change, is receptive to new ideas, and navigates conflict more easily.

Who Should Attend

Leaders and members of teams who are interested in gaining skills to be more successful at leading teams, communication or interacting with other humans on any level in business will benefit. The experience is relevant for executives, leaders, and any member of a team or organization regardless of role or experience level. Come as a solo participant, come with a team of 10 or 15 people. Any and all of the above, just get there.

I am a career state employee. I’ve been exposed to much training through the years. I was skeptical how much I could take away from a short training, but the content blew me away. Thank you for sharing concrete ways of perpetuating love and understanding in the world!

Galen’s ability to get 100% of the room engaged, relaxed, and leaning into the experience makes him truly one of a kind. I’ve never left a training session where I’ve heard so much positive and immediate impact made in such a short period of time.
