Relationships are at the heart of successful coaching. Coaches who develop trust and intimacy with their clients get more out of each session. This workshop will explore the connection between improv and relationship building. In improv, performers create instant relationships with their scene partners. While the purpose of an improv scene is typically to entertain, the tools improvisers use to connect with each other have applications beyond the stage. In this highly interactive workshop, participants will engage in:

  • improv exercises designed to practice active listening/observation and heighten their awareness of the personal dynamics occurring in a given moment. 
  • discussion of the application of these tools to participants' individual situations.  

Because improv can be defined as acting without a script, improvisers are therefore in a constant state of discovery. There isn't a script for coaching, either. Being comfortable with the unknown and reacting quickly in the moment are skills exhibited by successful improvisers and coaches alike.
