 Improv for Business-The Basics:

There has never been a more critical time to practice what is commonly referred to as “soft skills” in business today. We like to refer to them as human skills, any skill someone uses when interacting with another human.

Soft skills are what differentiates humans from robots.

 “Those who are flexible. Individuals who are open to change and thrive on new experiences.  We refer to them as the learning agile. Because demands on us are changing every day, the behaviors that carried us through yesterday are not necessarily what will help us tomorrow.  This means those individuals who are quick to learn from experience and move forward with new ideas will be better prepared to succeed in tomorrow’s worldThis is especially true for our leaders in the business world.Psychology Today

space for it.
