Join us for our Summer Professional Development Workshops on Tuesdays from 12-1PM. We all get anxious when speaking in front of a group, especially if we want to perform well and make a good impression on our colleagues! 


Improv for Meetings and Presentations with Lindsay Haitz will be a practical and fun hour to help you learn how to respond better under pressure through experiential learning and improv games. We'll explore improv as a place to engage in spontaneous dialogue, practice thinking on your mistakes, practice being present and in the moment, and to learn about yourself.


Please register in advance to obtain the Zoom link HERE.


Lindsay Haitz is a Licensed Professional Counselor and Certified Life Coach with a M.S. in Mental Health Counseling.  She works at Blueprint, in Urbana, as a therapist, business consultant, and life coach. Lindsay is also currently enrolled in advanced Improv classes through "The Second City" and is using improv to train psychological skills to help individuals improve their stress management, mindfulness practices, presentations, and interviewing skills.
