However confident we may feel, there are often situations in business when we find ourselves clinging to our agenda, repeating patterns of speech, drying up and even feeling too timid to speak out. With the use of professional improvisation exercises you will be encouraged to engage the more spontaneous, creative side of your brain. This enables you to think more quickly on your feet and practice being present in the moment so you can approach meetings, calls and negotiations with a positive attitude and flexibility.
With improvisation, everything is seen as a gift. Experience the willingness to step out of your comfort zone, be bold and open up to the possibility of endless opportunities. Improvisation relies on trust and collaboration, but don’t worry this isn’t one of those horrible trust exercises!. Exploring this skillset will help you to form deeper and more connected bonds and will teach you to become more adaptable and responsive. Your confidence and belief in your own aptitude to speak up and be heard will grow as you take a risk, have a go and express yourself with clarity and confidence.
This session will make you aware of how you are currently presenting and highlight areas in which you can improve. This isn’t about learning how to act.
