Location: Sudler Hall

McKinsey & Company invites you to join us for a dialogue on leadership. The event will take place on Wednesday, April 9th in Sudler Hall at 6:45 pm (details below). The evenings program will focus on Centered Leadership- a distinctive approach to developing leaders that builds self-mastery. Though we created Centered Leadership as part of the North American Womens initiative at McKinsey, we have quantitative evidence that it benefits men as well as women! Thats because of its roots in research on leadership, neuroscience, organization behavior, positive psychology along with over 150 interviews with leaders from around the world. Its five dimensions form a holistic approach to leadership that opens up opportunity and sustains those who take on increasingly challenging roles. The five dimensions of Centered Leadership are: -- Meaning: building on strength in your work to flourish -- Framing: increasing your self-awareness of triggers and fears and the mindsets underlying them, in order to shift to be at your best more of the time -- Connecting: identifying who can help you grow and cultivating trust-based relationships -- Engaging: finding your voice and taking ownership of your future, including opportunities, risks, and action -- Energizing: knowing where your energy comes from, how you use it up, and what you can do to manage it We hope the evening will be fun, interesting, and inspiring. Date/Time: Wednesday, April 9th at 6:45 pm Location: Sudler Hall Attire: Casual Please RSVP at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2014CenteredLeadershipRSVP. We look forward to seeing you!

Beyond the Monologue: Considering the Audition from Both Sides of the Table

5:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Location: Theater Studies building, Room TBD

*RSVP in Symplicity* Led by Broadway Producer Debbie Bisno (bisnoproductions.com) with NY Casting Director. Students embarking on a Life in the Theater will have the unique opportunity to engage in a dynamic theater workshop involving discussion and work-session focused on "Navigating the Industry" and working on individual Audition Techniques. The seminar will explore all aspects involved in the audition process: an actor's entrance into the room, the attitude/vibe presented by the actor, the actual reading/monologue, leaving the audition - and, all that goes on "behind the table," which an actor must take into account. The workshop is more than a "cold reading" and "monologue" class - it is a specific approach to the overall process, where students will gain valuable insight into the various perspectives and factors at work in the room; leading actors to become more confident auditioners and more interesting theater artists. Requirements: Similar to auditions in the industry, students will have the choice of bringing in a 2-minute prepared audition monologue, or working with short scenes/speeches that will be provided in advance. (Script and scenes will be emailed several days prior to the workshop.) Students are asked to prepare just as they would for any casting director or production (familiarity with the material is encouraged memorization is not required).
