improve it! Podcast – Developing Teams and Leaders Through Play, Improv & Experiential Learning

Feb 3, 2021

“If you're feeling frustrated or stuck or feel like you keep hitting walls on your projects, your initiatives, your ventures, you're always just that one more time away from having that incredible breakthrough and doubling down on what it is you were meant to contribute to your organization or to the world.” -Erin King


Are you stuck on team wait (aka waiting for the pandemic to be over) or are you using this time to innovate and bring forth new opportunities in this digital age?


Interesting concept, right?!


Failed it! Fam, grab your notebooks, and give a warm welcome to Erin King, Founder of Socialite Agency, Amazon Best-Selling Author and International Keynote Speaker to the show- as she shares insights that you didn’t know you needed until now!


In today’s episode, Erin tells us all about:


  • Team Wait v. Team Create


  • How your low light reel > highlight reel


  • How to delegate responsibilities to give you more time to focus on other priorities


  • How to embrace your superpowers

About the guest: Erin King has helped clients from The Academy Awards to the United States Navy show up more powerfully from behind the screen using her award-winning “PUB” method.

Erin competed in the World Irish Dancing Championships and played NCAA Division 1 lacrosse but NOTHING has toughened up today’s communication expert like navigating the world of being a brand-new dog mom to a ten pound cavapoo named Stevie Nicks. Off-duty Erin is hiking/biking/surfing/snowboarding in either Laguna Beach or Jackson Hole with her fancy redneck husband Hartman. You might also find her hiding from all of the above behind the covers of a nice, good book.



About the Host: Erin Diehl is the founder and Chief “Yes, And” officer of improve it! and host of the failed it! Podcast. She’s a performer, facilitator and professional risk-taker who lives by the mantra, “get comfortable with the uncomfortable.” Through a series of unrelated dares, Erin has created improve it!, a unique professional development company that pushes others to laugh, learn and grow. Her work with clients such as United Airlines, PepsiCo, Groupon, Deloitte, Motorola, Walgreens, and The Obama Foundation earned her the 2014 Chicago RedEye Big Idea Award and has nominated her for the 2015-2019 Chicago Innovations Award.

This graduate from Clemson University is a former experiential marketing and recruiting professional as well as a veteran improviser from the top improvisational training programs in Chicago, including The Second City, i.O. Theater, and The Annoyance Theatre.


When she is not playing pretend or facilitating, she enjoys running and beach dates with her husband and son, and their eight pound toy poodle, BIGG Diehl.
