“All the world’s a stage” – including California counties
350 Drama at the County: Acting techniques to improve your county performance
Leadership and acting have a lot in common. Both crafts require practitioners to be aware of and manage their emotions and those of people around them. They evoke different emotions — leaders generally don’t try to get people to cry and actors generally don’t get people to work through difficult workplace changes — but their crafts overlap nonetheless. In this lively, interactive class, participants learn and practice classic theatrical training techniques they can apply to their work as county leaders. Learn how to add passion and meaning to your communication.
Instructors: Stacy Corless is a Mono County supervisor and founding member of Sierra Classic Theatre in Mammoth Lakes; John Gioia is a Contra Costa supervisor and Vice Chair of the California Counties Foundation and founding board member of CSAC Institute.
