Learn Authentic Leadership Through Improv with Second City


Please join us at our final Leadership Academy Seminar of the academic year. In collaboration with Laugh at IIT Comedy Club, The Leadership Academy presents, Authentic Leadership Through Improv, on Saturday, March 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Kaplan–Tellabs. Pizza will be provided.

This seminar will be led by The Second City, world renown improvisational comedy theater and training center. Since its debut, The Second City has consistently been a starting point for many comedians, award-winning actors, and others in show business, including Bill Murray, Steve Carell, Jordan Peele, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Stephen Colbert, and more.

This seminar will teach you the skills of an improviser to put into practice on your stage: in meetings, in teams, in presentations—anywhere you need them to operate at peak performance. Improvisational skill is the ability to adapt and excel in communication, collaboration, leadership, change readiness—all with boundless resilience to weather what’s new and changing and unexpected. These are the skills for the world we work and live in now and for the future.

We look forward to seeing you there.
