Improvisational Leadership

In an average day your environment may change hundreds of times. Understanding the nuances of each of these environments has a tremendous impact on your ability to perform at your peak. Practicing improvisational techniques will allow you to quickly analyze changing environmental conditions and communicate quickly and effectively within them. Improvisational leaders enhance their ability to interpret and adapt to their ever-changing environment. This is done with an ever-present focus on their goals.

This course develops your ability for “yes and”: We’re all highly skilled and practiced at critiquing, judging and defining. We’re trained at saying no. We have great muscles for that. Strengthen your affirmation muscles. The “yes and” approach gives us the ability to respond to potentially stressful situations in a more relaxed, productive and relationship-building way. These two words have a powerful effect in all relationships, motivation and creativity. “Yes and” can be used to positively refocus unproductive conversations, and to redirect brainstorming to be more effective. As a wonderful side-benefit, these skills help us be more amicable, popular and influential in personal relationships as well.

Create a learning solution that best meets your company’s unique needs! This course, along with our entire library of courses, can be tailored and delivered privately for your team.

Want this program for yourself or just a few individuals? We’ll set you or your employees up with a personal trainer for a series of live, virtual skills-coaching sessions.
