Jen Oleniczak Brown is the Founder of The Engaging Educator, a women-owned and operated company dedicated to helping women find their unapologetic, authentic and best voice, style and self through improv-based education. A firm believer in the idea of Yes, and, Jen’s mission is to empower as many women as possible to stop playing small and know their incredible super nova powers.
One of the top reasons her female clients take the improv class is to develop leadership skills. Unfortunately, a lot of them think they have to pretend to be someone they aren’t, and develop qualities that aren’t innately part of who they are. The reality is, most of us have those coveted leadership skills already, it’s simply a matter of honing our style, reading a situation, and knowing when to bring out active listening (always) and when to focus in on things like motivation, responsibility and delegation.
Great leaders have mastered communication skills, and that’s our first focus in this class designed specifically for women who are in leadership roles or want to be in leadership roles. After connecting with communication, we’ll explore other aspects of leadership, like how to give effective feedback, when to be positive (and when to be realistic), and how to develop creativity with your team, all through interactive activities. We’ll have an open discussion of challenges and struggles, as well as celebratory moments for everyone coming out and committing to improvement.
