Performance Breakthrough! A radical approach to success

Wednesday, May 31, 2017

Why talk about another person's book? Because, it's radical! And for improvscience, the breakthrough discoveries of the Performance of a Lifetime (PoaL) CEO, Cathy Salit, inspired Dr. Raquell Holmes to explore the benefits of performance in scientific research environments. Dr. Holmes and her colleague, Evelyn Dougherty of the Boston Social Therapy Group, are hosting an intimate book reception with their guest of honor, Cathy Salit, along with friends, colleagues and associates.

“It’s great to be able to host someone who has led the way for people in very structured and rigid environments to experience growth and creative leadership," said Holmes about the upcoming book reception in Boston, MA. “If Cathy hadn’t created and developed PoaL, improvscience may not have come into existence.”

Cathy is the author of Performance Breakthrough: A Radical Approach to Success at Work (Hachette Books), which has been called a “must read” (Susan Cain), “required reading” (Tor Myhren), and an “exhilarating book” (Mary Catherine Bateson). Cathy and her work have been featured in Forbes, Inc., Fast Company, Wired, and the Wall Street Journal.

Cathy Salit’s core idea is that all humans have an innate ability to perform, pretend, and improvise. It’s what helps us develop as children and continue developing as adults. If you’re interested in learning more about how Cathy’s approach informs our work at improvscience, contact us.
