Improv Is No Joke: Using Improvisation to Create Positive Results in Leadership and In Life
Leadership is more than someone’s title in an organization. Leadership is the positive effect that you have on another person, no matter your title. The best way to have this positive effect is through the power of improv. Improv is more than just laughs—it’s a valuable communication tool that can help you build stronger relationships with your team and clients/customers. Improvisation is a mindset that allows your organization to adapt to unexpected business challenges by generating ideas and providing solutions in a timely manner. Another important feature: Improv helps you operate clearly in chaotic situations by focusing on those things that you have control of and stop worrying about things you can control.
