What is Applied Improvisation?

Applied Improvisation: The same principles that help improvisers co-create scenes, stories, songs, and plays on our feet in real time aid people off stage in collaboration, communication, and co-creation. Think about your work on teams; some groups just work really, really well together. We usually attribute that group-cohesion to someone, or some thing like, "We lucked-out, we just get along." or "She's a great leader." By the same token, when a group doesn't work well together, we attribute it to chance or to individuals, "We had trouble from the start" or "He's not a good manager". The skills that make collaboration work are identifiable, learnable, and repeatable. Applied Improvisation addresses the core skills of collaboration and communication.

From conference keynote speaker to lunchtime brown-bag talk, Rebecca's presentations are lively and interactive.
