S5E46: New Scripts -Communication and Collaboration for Better Results (part 1)

“Excellent, innovative, and effective communication invites productivity and adaptability, making an organization stand out from its competitors.” Peter Margaritis

In today’s episode, Peter Margaritis talks about new scripts, communication, and collaboration for better results. We can be given the same space and business concept but still have different results from our competitors. How does communication affect your business from beginning to end? How we articulate our wants and needs in the industry directly affects the results we achieve and get.

Every organization needs to have a simple, straightforward, effective communication strategy that reduces jargon in the workplace. In addition, laying a foundation of innovation and improvement that inspires internal and external communication enables you to stand out against your competitors.

In the long run, simple processes can bring consistent desired results.

S5E44: Turned Off – Walking Away From Your Inner Critic (Part 2)

“Your ability to be vulnerable is your strength, not your weakness.” Peter Margaritis

In today’s episode, Peter Margaritis continues discussing the inner critic. We can learn how to turn off the inner critic, but they are not always so bad. The only people who know that you have done a flop are you, your inner critic, and nobody else.

As we continue to silence the inner critic, sometimes we are so focused on what went wrong that we forget that we are human beings and are allowed to make mistakes. Instead of focusing on yourself, it’s more important to focus on your audience and to whom you deliver.

Vulnerability can be a great way to connect to others. Giving examples from a fantastic songwriter, Peter gives excellent insight on how opening yourself up to others can make you a better connection and relatable, especially in the message you want to deliver.

Sometimes you need to reason with your inner critic instead of silencing them.

S5E43: Turned Off Walking Away From Your Inner Critic (Part 1)

“Your inner critic wants to protect you by holding you back.” Peter Margaritis

In today’s episode, Peter Margaritis talks about turning off the inner critic in yourself. Sometimes it’s hard to quiet that voice that makes you not want to take risks. But, it gives you advice, usually in the negative kind, that holds you in your comfort zone.

Peter gives insight into the inner critic and why the critic comes out. Sometimes it’s because of self-preservation, but most times, the critic has no basis for criticizing. As Peter puts it, the inner critic is a good companion, but you shouldn’t let them control you.

Quieting the inner critic may seem like a hurdle, but once you do, you will have a better time at work, during meetings, and going on stage.

S5E42: Scripted For Safety Letting Go of Negativity and Dismissal (Part 2)

“How we learn to collaborate is more important than who is on the team.” Peter Margaritis

In today’s episode, Peter Margaritis continues to talk about safety, and today the main focus is psychological safety in the workspace. How a team works and is assembled speaks more volumes than the members’ contributions.

Peter talks about the meaning of psychological safety, the books he draws from, and how to handle conflict. How we react to stimuli (conflict) speaks volumes about the psychological calmness in the office. As an improv leader, it’s up to you to shift the culture of your organization or team to an open and intentional squad, where they can speak their mind and have their ideas and opinions listened to.

S5E41: Scripted For Safety – Letting Go of Negativity and Dismissal (Part 1)

 “We learn when we make mistakes. Failure is good.” Peter Margaritis

In today’s episode, Peter Margaritis talks about scripting your mind and body and letting go of negative energy and dismissal. This is not only from others but also from yourself. As an Improv Leader, it’s easy to be in class but afraid to improvise. Sometimes it’s easier to beat ourselves up and focus on the negative energy and thoughts and term yourself as a failure.

Instead, Peter reflects on why we do not bring up the apparent ad. In so doing, you are better off storing the memory for future use and engagements. Going off script may seem unnatural, but this is where courage is most needed, and you learn, in the art of business, improvisation requires you to take time and be intentional.
