Business Improv II

Description: 

This course is for those who completed Business Improv I - Thinking On Your Feet in the Workplace and are ready to build on the foundations of improv and explore how to deepen their learning for greater think-on-your-feet agility in the workplace.  Picture Business Improv II not as think on your feet, but think on your tiptoes.  This course is all about learning through practice.  There will be no PowerPoint slides and no long lectures.  Instead, you will spend your day getting better at quick thinking through participation in fully immersive improvisation activities and exploration of common workplace challenges.  Work hard, play, push yourself outside of your comfort zone and train to think on your feet at work – at the speed of improv.
