Important professional moments such as interviewing for a job or making a first impression rely on your ability to think on the spot and improvise what you say next. But how do you practice your ability to improvise when you don’t know what will happen? Fortunately, we can learn from improvisational theater, which trains people to see the opportunity in everything. This principle helps people make a good impression by focusing on others and listening and responding creatively to what they say. In this highly interactive, fast-paced, 2-hour workshop we will explore “Everything Is An Offer” through activities and games from improv theater that develop the skills of flexibility, listening, and building on what other people offer. Come with your video on and ready to participate!
