Actors use training in improvisation to sharpen their skills. They want to be able to respond in the moment in the most skillful way without preparing or rehearsing for that particular situation. It gives them an edge in being creative and flexible. What does Improv have to do with you? With the programs where you work?
We can use improvisation techniques to promote creativity, skillful listening, and presence which are vital to our ability to relate to information and to each other.
In this session, you will:
*Discover how you communicate and what changes in approach can make you more approachable, responsive, and collaborative.
*Practice Improv techniques and see how it encourages flexibility, listening, and “being in the moment”
*Get ideas for games and activities you can use to share to help improve creativity.
