The next WIN program will take place on Thursday, July 14 at 12pm at JCC. Our speaker is Jane Fischer, a creative change facilitator for personal and organizational development. Her passion is to help individuals, teams, and organizations arrive at creative solutions to the challenging and ambiguous problems they face, and to do so through positive mindsets. Jane’s work is focused on supporting the integration of creativity into all aspects of personal, professional, organizational, and community development efforts. Her workshops and programs are highly interactive, allowing individuals and groups to explore and experience ways to enhance collaboration, adaptability, communication, resilience, and other elements that bring the best out of people and teams. She infuses principles and practices of creative problem solving, creative leadership, creative thinking tools, collaborative mindsets, applied improvisation, and purposeful play to build and boost participants’ mindsets, skill sets, and tool sets. In addition to infusing improvisation and creativity into her workshops, Jane has also been a professional improv comedy performer for 20 years, most recently with ComedySportz Buffalo.
