Applied Improv-isation  (Level 1: Basic Skills)

We all need to think and speak confidently and effectively on our feet, in both everyday situations and under pressure. Improvisation (improv) training is not just for actors. Its principles and techniques, applied to the world of work, develop essential skills in communication, collaboration, and decision-making. Participate in playful improv exercises that foster confidence, focus, trust, spontaneity, and teamwork. Learn about the value and use of these tools in the workplace.
