Through improv exercises and facilitator coaching in this highly interactive workshop, you will:

· Enhance awareness of your own non-verbal communication (body language, facial expression, tone of voice) and the messages you’re conveying

· Improve your ability to perceive what others are communicating nonverbally and how to respond

· Develop sensitivity to the rhythm and flow of a conversation – when to share and when to listen

Applications of this work include:

· Job Interviews

· Networking

· Challenging conversations with your supervisor or colleagues

· Collaboration with your team

There’s a reason you keep hearing about the business applications of improv principles. Come and have the experience first hand!
