The right education and the right experience will only get you so far in the fast-paced world of business. Because business can change faster than you can keep up, you also need the ability to think on your feet and turn on a dime. You may not know it, but the skill you need to achieve in business is the same ability comedians have in spades–the skill of improv.
It makes sense; dealing with clients and colleagues requires the ability to quickly come up with solutions to unforeseen problems. That’s the art of improv. And that’s what you’ll learn from Joseph Keefe, founder of Second City Communications and sage potentate of funny business. In Improv Yourself, he’ll show you how to use humor and spontaneity to improve your business performance.
In fact, you already have improv skills you use every day–in meetings, sales calls, brainstorming sessions, or even just while hanging around the water cooler. But you probably didn’t know that by mastering your improv skills you can become more productive and dynamic professionally, have more fun and rewarding business interactions, and achieve at a higher level than ever before.
With the skills you’ll learn from Improv Yourself, you will improve your ability to: Think and act on your feet Quickly respond to changing circumstances Generate new business ideas Handle a crisis with speed and flexibility Take risks and reap the rewards Tap into your sense of humor when you need it most
With practice, you too can nurture your improvisational skills and develop lightning-fast problem-solving techniques. You’ll grow the skills you need while improving your business and personal life.
