Improv course outcomes

Each session we run will include exercises to develop:

– Self-confidence and interpersonal skills

– Ability to make strong decisions in real-time

– Group collaboration and teamwork

– Presentation and communication skills

– Agility and free-thinking

– Active listening skills and concentration

– Positive attitudes to being out of your comfort zone

In addition, this particular session will have a focus on: Mindfulness

Keeping your cool in stressful environments, meetings or with heavy workloads is key to productivity, creativity and success in business. This session will show you how to remain in the moment, allow you to experience uncertainty and practise staying calm in the face of it. Improvisation lives in the space between the known and the unknown and we soon discover that we are more resourceful than we ever knew. Turn off your inner critic and you will find that you already know everything you need to know.

Mindfulness is often practised in a quiet room, alone or with similar reverently quiet people. Life is not reverent and quiet though. Improv allows you to practise mindfulness amidst the noise and uncertainty of life. Mindfulness is being in the moment, not removed from it and improv demands your full attention and connection with those around you, and with yourself.

By the end of the session, you’ll feel calmer, energised and surer of yourself.
