Applied Improv is a curriculum designed for soft skills and leadership development. It is improv in business, improv for business; an approach that puts the principles and techniques of improvisational theater to work in non-theatrical venues such as corporations, academic institutions, organizations, and professional groups. Through participating in improv exercises and games, participants develop vital professional skills. It is a part of the growing international wave of nontraditional, arts-based educational programs being used to help people become better at—and happier with—what they do.
Authentic and Dynamic CommunicationHow do you bring out the most vivid and honest parts of who you are? This program focuses on self awareness, conveying the importance of your message, and techniques for developing and maintaining self confidence. In addition, participants get better at paying attention and listening to others.
Thinking on Your FeetThe essence of improvising is thinking on your feet, reacting in the moment. Participants become more present and responsive by learning techniques for focusing on the moment and recognizing and preventing the barriers that keep them out of the moment.
