Meet improv extraordinaire Lindsey Caplan. Lindsey specializes in applying the principles of improv to professional and organizational development. You can find her at LindseyCaplan.com or on Twitter @lindsey_caplan 

In the show on “Tools for Navigating Business without a Script,” she mentions:

  • “Yes, and…”- use this verbal tool in your professional and personal life to build on relationships and affirm your listeners that you are in fact listening to them.
  • Trusting your instincts – a side effect of improv is learning to listen to your intuition or as Anne Lamott would say: “Listen to your broccoli and it will tell you how to eat it”.
  • How the concept of play can enrich your work and personal life. Yes, start playing. It’s not just for Google.

On this episode, I interview Jessica Mastors and we chat about dreamers and how dreaming leads to true innovation. You can find out more about Jessica and her brilliant work at Earthhorn here: www.earthhorn.org.

“If nobody’s laughing at your dreams, you’re not dreaming big enough.” (Tweet this!)

Her work helps dreamers achieve real success. One of her current initiatives is the 100 Dream Challenge, where she is helping 100 students make their dreams a reality.

It’s easier than ever to dream and make things happen than ever before. Gutenberg would be jealous!

Tune in and start dreamin’

What do you think? How powerful are dreams to make innovation happen? Have you ever felt stifled to dream big?

What happens when a portfolio manager ditches corporate America and travels the world to learn tango? On this episode, I talk to Sarah Jacob who teaches us how tango can help you realize the present (pun intended) in life.

Sarah was well en route to financial freedom, raking in enough money through her work as a portfolio manager, but something was missing. She felt drained which is something you may be familiar with. You’re not alone. After all, this is water.

She shares her experience with traveling the world as a “tango gypsy”, her morning ritual of 5 Tibetans, and what squirrels can teach us on our breaks at work.

Get ready to be more productive, smile more and start dancing’
