People who want to succeed in this fast-paced, competitive world need to think like improv actors. Lightning-quick responses, razor-sharp powers of observation, confidence, and creativity are qualities that can help anyone go far. This unique guide, written by a trio of professional improv trainers and performers, teaches the art of spontaneity and can vastly improve the way we respond to situations in the business world — or anywhere.
Businesses are sending their top managers to improvisational classes to learn how to give presentations, how to talk to clients, and how to finesse difficult situations. But those same skills can be mastered with the help of the simple and fun exercises found in this book. The authors explain how improvisation comes into play in our daily lives, and the rewards of taking risks in those situations. They show how to ignite the creative spark, break repetitive habits, and talk so others know you’re listening. They give suggestions for building a dynamic group environment, and for encouraging others to think outside the box. Improvise This! is filled with true-to-life business scenarios and offers methods for not only surviving but triumphing in those situations, making this a valuable and entertaining resource for everyone who understands that success in business is equal parts perspiration, inspiration, and improvisation.
