Improvisation for Agile Skill Development
In today's economy, the Creative Economy, businesses face a disrupted, highly competitive, and constantly changing landscape. Robie and Jody Wood say that to thrive in the Creative Economy, team members, managers, and executives need to become and remain agile. Improvisational theater provides a proven model for developing agility skills since the characteristics of “being agile”—engaging people, learning, making decisions in the midst of uncertainty and ambiguity, and adapting—are the very skills that improv artists work to develop with every exercise they perform. This session is about “Being Agile,” developing the mindset and behaviors that grow great abilities in communication, collaboration, inspiring others, building on others’ ideas, learning, adapting, and evolving. This workshop will engage delegates in experiential learning exercises from Improvisational Theater that will have immediate impact in improving agile mindset and behavior. The workshop participants will find the exercises lively, inspiring, fun, life changing—and an experience they will never forget.
