ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
In business, as in life, we spend a lot of time trying to control the messages we send. We develop messaging, craft talking points, and try to work from prepared scripts.
But more often than not, there’s a twist in the road that we don’t anticipate or a question that stops us cold. And when the stakes get high, our carefully crafted script often goes out the window.
At those moments, we need to be able to think on our feet.
Theatrical Improvisation, or Improv, is a way to tap into the innate skill we all have for being able to think and act spontaneously in any situation. It helps us to listen while we're talking, to communicate more clearly and with less obstruction, and to respond more quickly and more instinctively, generally with a better result. It helps us to be more flexible and resilient, to connect with our colleagues, and to become more effective leaders.
