How to Think on Your Feet: Improv Skills for Business

Use Improvisation Techniques to Exude Confidence

Would you like to become more adept at sharing your ideas on the spot? This 90-minute webinar offers you practical tips and techniques to build your “improv muscle.”

You'll discover ways to deliver a polished performance even in high-stakes situations, such as important business meetings, sales discussions, and negotiations – where you need to shine when faced with the unexpected.

Listening actively, saying “yes-and,” and making confident choices are all key components. So is increasing your awareness of the underlying messages — both verbal and non-verbal — that are a part of any communication.

No need to be “fast on your feet” or “funny.” Instead, you will enhance your ability to pick up cues, speak effectively, and build on others' comments. By trusting that you'll know what to say and do, you will enrich your relationships and polish your personal brand.

Whether you identify as an introvert, speak English as a second language, or just wish to fortify your interpersonal skills, practicing these techniques will help you even in the most challenging business scenarios.
