Benefits of Improvisation
Social anxiety can be a serious problem in situations from giving presentations to networking. Improvisation can help you feel confident about your ideas and stand out in a crowd. It will make you feel stronger in yourself and help other people to trust you more.
Nothing is more intimidating than a blank sheet of paper, real or metaphorical. Where do you start? How do you create ideas? And what about the fear that you ideas won’t work? Improvisation helps you defeat the inner critic and create ideas easily, both alone and in a team environment.
Ever wondered why some people fade into the background and some people seem to effortlessly hold the room and everybody’s attention? The ability to be present and engaged with whatever you are doing is a core skill of improvisation. Contrary to common conception, charisma can be taught.
In a world where information overload is a way of life and you find yourself scrabbling for down time, learning to respond to new challenges without panicking is essential. Improvisation helps you to understand and train your stress reactions so that you can remain calm and make the best decision.
