Lessons from Improv...
As a comedy improv performer, Juliana learned three lessons she still lives by and uses in her work today:
1. Accept what is: Using YES, And... instead of Yeah, but...is a powerful communication tool AND way of living life.
2. Make time for Play: Play reduces stress, helps us learn better and makes it easier to solve problems.
3. If you want to be more powerful, be more present.
What Juliana Believes:
I believe that every interaction with another person is an opportunity to make a connection and have a positive impact, and the depth of that impact is limitless.
I believe that leaders have vast power and influence and when we raise the vibration of leadership, we change the world.
I believe curiosity is the antidote to judgment. And when we remove judgment, there’s potential for understanding, acceptance and love.
I believe that the way humans interact with each other has a direct impact on the goodness of the world.
I believe that when we understand and love ourselves better, we understand and love others better.
