Team Performance and Creative Leadership – Master Tourism Destination Management

Guest Lecture – Cathy Salit (CEO, Performance of a Lifetime)

November 2017

I love teaching the course “Team Performance and Creative Leadership“. This course is offered to the international master students of Tourism Destination Management and together with my colleague Wesley Put we bring many tools and resources to help young professionals to perform better in teams, to learn a more relational way to lead and also to become the professional that the 21st century needs.

Last week we had a very special guest with us (digitally) : Cathy Salit. She is the CEO of Performance of a Lifetime, an Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Company, She lives in New York city and helps organisations and individuals to 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 brings skills for the theatre improvisation, and the new science of performative psychology into the workplace. In all of her work, Cathy relates to people as performers, and organisations and companies as the stages on which they perform. She addresses some of the crucial issues facing leaders and organisations today.

Her book Performance Breakthrough presents a revolutionary approach to learning and growing having the core idea that all humans are performers and by playing and performing we can develop as professionals.

We had a session with her learning more about her ideas and her book. She brought in some interactive activities to help our students experience first hand what it is to perform together and to dialogue together core topics about being a team player.

Such an inspiring day!!
