Leadership Lessons From Improvisational Comedy by Elizabeth P. Cipolla at The Post-Journal on 21 July 2013
The author encourages the use of improv comedy (an innovative and creative process) to develop leadership skills. The title caught my eye, but her three reasons kept me reading. The first, “Accept the offer” – she highlights that you have to be willing to face new challenges to grow and develop. The second, “Listen in the moment” speaks to the need of communication – really listening to what the other person has to say and considering your response (albeit in perhaps a more accelerated fashion). Finally, “Go with your gut” discusses the importance of having faith in yourself and your abilities in unfamiliar situations.
