Vancouver Island Chapter Presents
The Way of Improvisation

  February 9, 2017
7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. PST
Patient Care Centre Lecture Theatre, Royal Jubilee Hospital, Victoria

In healthcare constant change seems to be the new normal and health care leaders often have to adapt to change in the moment and on the spot – in other words there is a growing need to ‘improvise’. In response to these  increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) times, leading business schools such as MIT, UCLA, and Stanford have recently began a need to teach ‘Improvisational Leadership’ in their MBA programs. Recognizing that there is much that health leaders can learn from Improv comedians (also see HBR, 2015), it is our pleasure to bring you a local, renowned expert in Improvision -- Paper Street Theatre’s artistic director, Dave Morris. Join us for an engaging and enjoyable event to learn about the Way of Improvisation. This session will provide immediately useful techniques relating to Leads Self and Engages Others that leaders can readily apply in a health care setting.

Guest Speaker: Dave Morris, Artistic Director, Paper Street Theatre

Dave Morris is a speaker, teacher, and storyteller, but mostly he's an improviser. Dave has been teaching, producing and performing improvisation around Canada and the world for the last 15 years.
