Improvisation for Breakthrough Business Results – October 12, 2012- Workshop

“Prepare to be Unprepared” is what Amy Poehler (SNL, Second City, Parks and Recreation) said she learned to do as improviser.  We will explore how to stay in the moment and think on your feet while using the activities of improvisation. This is not “improv” sketch comedy. You do not have to be funny. Just show up and participate.

In your business tool kit you have experience, strategy, a solid education, and well-laid plans. Yet, sooner or later, you begin to realize that the act of management becomes a delicate balance that requires advanced improvisational skills.  This is where your experience and training may fall short.

With this work you can:

  • Think on your feet in fast paced or uncomfortable situations
  • Deal with uncertainty
  • Go deeper into relationships with clients, investors, colleagues, teams
  • Take risks more readily
  • Feel more confident in everyday or high pressure interactions
  • Find your authentic presence
  • Create positive energy
  • Find personal resilience

Learn how in this 3-hour session.  
In this introductory session, you will do what improvisers do to prepare, perform, and succeed when the stakes are high.  We’ll take you through improvisation exercises and activities that help you tap in to your intuition and inner knowing.

Improvisation techniques get you thinking on your feet. This is a novel experience with new ways to have you be more successful in your business.  The work is fast-paced and hey, it’s not around a conference table!

This session and its activities are specifically tailored to those who are in the room.
