On April 3rd, 16 members enjoyed the improv class taught by actor and trainer Greg Hohn. We did five activities: Swapping Corners, Mirror Movement, Rip Van Winkle, Talk Show Guests, and Smith & Sir. After the experience and debriefing, these were the lessons learned by the group:
· Be in the moment
· Trust yourself
· What does confidence look like? Me
· Function outside of a plan
· Give it the gas!
· Focus on your audience
· Practice in a safe place
· Status vs. power
· Task is the same regardless of the audience
· Play a role when stepping outside comfort zone
· Move beyond the fear
· Presentation techniques
· Shift thinking from worst-case scenarios to best-case
· Be aware of self
· It’s better to be good now than perfect later
· Do self-evaluation before or after, not during the process
