Making the Net-WORK For You

Does the thought of networking give you the ick?! (“The ick” = sweaty armpits, dry mouth, mild nausea.) Do you want to get an edge when it comes to meeting new people in your field? Do you want to achieve all that and then some, while laughing and having a blast?! No worries, friend – improve it! has got your back.

In our workshop “Making the Net-WORK for You", you will participate in an interactive lecture and series of improvisation-based exercises led by Erin Diehl, Founder and CEO of improve it!, and her team of professionally trained improvisers. Over the course of this one-hour workshop, improve it! will convey the theme “Being Present + Offering Support = Engaging Conversations.”

By the end of the workshop, you will have learned and practiced:

  • How to be fully present in the moment so there is no room for self-consciousness or shaky nerves.
  • How to offer support and engage in finding common ground with internal and external peers.
  • How to connect and engage in conversations is to listen deeply and build on the other person’s ideas.
  • Not only will you practice the skills you need to be a confident and effective networker, you will walk away with concrete goals and actions to see your networking dreams come true. No joke!

Take it from improve it! - don’t let the net-WORK you over, make the net-WORK for you!

Erin was a speaker for Disrupt HR Chicago, hosted the 2016 RedEye Big Idea Awards and will be a speaker for HRMAC Chicago, WISE Chicago, the Business Marketing Association and Emerging Leaders of the Chicagoland Chamber of Commerce in 2017.
