Performance Breakthrough outlines proven techniques, including taking an emotional inventory; crafting new scripts for greater confidence, stronger relationships, and better outcomes; building ensembles; improvising; and listening--really listening--including accepting others' criticism and input.

About the Author
What People are Saying About This
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
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book is a breath of fresh air in the crowded field of self help books. Funny, engaging and informative, the book practices what it preaches as we're guided through all kinds of life and work challenges. Best of all are the suggestions (form a performance board) and the exercises which are helpfully recapped in full at the end. Excellent!
This book is amazing! It gives you simple and fun concepts that can be practiced and used in everyday life. The ideas are applicable to adults and children. I was able to use the same scenarios with adult colleagues as I did with a 2nd and 3rd grade class They loved being able to act out scenes and role play with “characters and costumes”, it was truly enjoyable. You were able to see these concepts come to life and make an immediate impact on your outlook from both a personal and professional level. I highly recommend this book!
