About the Author

Cathy Salit is the CEO and founder of Performance of a Lifetime, a consulting firm specializing in helping leaders and companies with the human side of business and strategy.

"I know from my own experience having Cathy Salit as a teacher that her lessons can be life-changing. This remarkable book reveals her theater and improv secrets--and shows how they can electrify your work and enliven your soul."--Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell Is Human and Drive
"Performance Breakthrough is a refreshing and fascinating book about how to grow as a person and as a professional. Cathy Salit's vivid storytelling, humor, and wisdom combined with highly creative and practical coaching makes it a must read for anyone who's looking to stretch, learn, and become more of who they really are."--Susan Cain, co-founder of Quiet Revolution and New York Times-bestselling author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking
"By viewing our identities and our jobs through the lens of improvisation and performance, Salit shows us how to find the courage to go beyond our self-imposed limits. With compelling stories and exercises that move us, she teaches it as she lives it."--Sheila Heen and Douglas Stone, authors of Thanks for the Feedback and Difficult Conversations
"This is an exhilarating book. Cathy Salit shows how we can make ourselves more effective in our relationships with others not by adopting a set of slogans or rigid formulas but by activating the basic human capacity to learn through play, from the outside in, by performing the kind of person we wish to be. In the work place or at home, hers is a liberating approach that will both simplify and enrich your life. Enjoy. And reap the benefits."--Mary Catherine Bateson, cultural anthropologist and bestselling author of Composing a Life
