Change is difficult. It demands flexible and innovative behavior. That feels overwhelming. Where do we start? Managing change and innovating are Learned Behaviors. And Improvisation is your Guide. Improv is an interactive and proven model for behavioral innovation and change management.
Improv troupes succeed on stage because they apply the “Yes, and” principle. Whatever the first person says, the next person affirms and adds to it. But this practice isn’t limited to onstage brilliance—corporate teams caught up in old patterns of thought and action can learn to improvise and innovate, too.
This session will provide clear techniques for creating more collaborative, innovative interactions, use case studies and exercises to show how to change behavior, and give you a fresh way to consider developing talent for innovative behavior and outcomes. Improvisers play, think upside down, and brainstorm more efficiently. Leveraging these behaviors in organizations propels people and ideas forward.
By attending this session, you will learn:
• Four core principles of improvisation that exist in high-performing teams
• Three behavioral skills that support effective change management and innovation
• How to improve brainstorming
• How to apply improv to change management and innovation
