Why Improvisation?

 

Improvisation is the art of being effective in the moment. This moment. Right now.

In an age when the social, technological, and political worlds are in constant flux, the ability to respond quickly and effectively to sudden change is no longer desirable—it is necessary. It matters not what industry you are in or how long you have been in it. The world is changing drastically and only the expert surfers are going to be able to ride the wave.

And yet, we do so little to improve our own abilities to think on our feet. We think of this as a talent. “Jessica is a dynamic leader. How does she do it?” “Armando always seems to be one step ahead of the game.”

But it is not talent. It is a skill. Anyone can learn it. Anyone can improve.

Our approach is to take all that we have learned from psychology, neurology, organizational behavior, and the precepts of improvisational theater and music, and distill it into presentations that are dynamic, entertaining, and ultimately useful. Our method is direct, practical, and a whole lot of fun. Our goal is that you walk out the door with powerful tools that will help you get a better grip on your future.
