Through her acclaimed book Performance Breakthrough: A Radical Approach to Success at Work and as CEO of Performance of a Lifetime, an Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Company, Cathy Salit has helped teams, organizations, and thousands of individuals achieve breakthroughs in their performances in the workplace. As a speaker, she introduces audiences to The Becoming Principle® — a revolutionary approach to learning and change that blends theater, improvisation, and the new science of performative psychology. In all of her work, Cathy relates to people as performers, and organizations and companies as the stages on which they perform. By introducing audiences to this approach — that they are both who they are and who they are becoming — Cathy’s entertaining and interactive presentations address some of the crucial issues facing leaders and organizations today.
THE PERFORMANCE OF LEADERSHIP
Make no mistake — leadership is a performance. Salit leverages her two decades of experience as a CEO and as coach-advisor to executives at Fortune 500 companies and innovative upstarts alike, to help her audiences tap into their inner performer to grow into more effective, creative and successful leaders.
THE ART OF CONVERSATION
It’s all about relationships — with colleagues, the boss, employees, and clients or customers. Cathy draws on the core skills of improvisation and theater to help people at all levels learn how to listen and communicate artfully; to enhance and create strong connections with others; to handle unexpected (and challenging) situations; and to build relationships that grow and last.
CREATIVITY, CHANGE, AND THE COMPETITIVE EDGE
Creativity, Cathy says, is not just for “creatives.” And constant change — a reality for our times — affects us all in big and small ways. Cathy explores how to approach change as a creative opportunity, a creative project, a creative endeavor — and reap the benefits of the innovation and competitive edge that follows.
