More Joy

in Collaboration & Communication

Hi! I'm Janna Sobel. I am a teacher & coach, creative community builder & host,  writer & performer. I design and facilitate learning experiences that help people strengthen communication, collaboration, and creativity, using the tools of storytelling, laughter-based play, and applied improvisation. I teach for institutions like The Leadership Studio at The Booth School of Business, The IDEA Center at the University of Notre Dame, The Experience Institute, and The Second City. This site shares offerings from my private practice, where I provide support to individuals, professional teams, and communities.

"Janna Sobel is a warm, compassionate, and joyful host and cultural producer. Her events have a family-feeling to them, which isn't something you can teach. Making people feel welcome is in her bones. Chicago's arts and cultural scene is so much better with Janna in it."

Tyler Green, Producer of Wait Wait Don't Tell Me! and The Moth Grand Slam
