There is a decades-long debate taking place in businesses across the country about the return on investment gained from leadership development efforts. It is a question at the heart of my book, Discover The Joy of Leadership: A Practical Guide to Resolving Your Management Challenges, published on February 6, 2017. This book was the culmination of two solid years of work and I am very proud of the product that I created. I start my book off with the following conversation:

Bob Kulhan, President, CEO & Founder, Business Improv

At first glance, “improvisational leadership” might seem to be contradiction in terms. Leaders are thoughtful, strategic people; improvisation is a comedic art form and a team sport in which no one person is greater than the ensemble. However, when you redirect the tenets of improvisation away from comedy and toward leadership, they help your team perform at its best—by postponing judgment, communicating and connecting, leveling status, and achieving mindfulness. Improv isn’t a replacement for strategic thinking; rather, it’s a tool to buttress and support thoughtfulness and strategy. And that crucial moment when planning and strategy collide with execution is where improvisation shines.

Failure hurts. Crisis is painful and exhausting. Mistakes are costly. It’s also true that inside the discomfort and loss, often profound wisdom, strength, and innovation may be gained. But finding these is not guaranteed.
