    Getting LEAN in Leadership with David Veech

David now teaches organizations how to obliterate their obstacles, accelerate innovation, and elevate performance by teaching leaders how to love, learn, and let go.

    The Therapeutic Value of Improv with Margot Escott

    Would you believe that improv is used in the medical world? Margot Escott is a clinical social worker, licensed therapist, and professional speaker who has presented workshops and seminars on the therapeutic value of humor and play for over 30 years. She has studied and performed improv and was trained by some very well-known improvisers such as Gary Schwartz and friend-of-the-show Jay Sukow. In her practice, she uses improvisational theater exercises combined with cognitive behavior education to assist people suffering from anxiety disorders, Parkinson’s, and those recovering from addictions. Margot explains how this works, shares the story of how improv was never developed as a form of comedy, and much more.
