Here is an excerpt from that blog post:
“I had the honour of spending a few life-transforming hours in an improvisation workshop with the amazing Lisa Merchant from Second City Toronto. Lisa is a Canadian celebrity who’s won three comedy awards and been nominated for a Gemini. Check out Lisa’s bio.
She taught us how to have the kind of conversations that build trust and spark relationships.
It turns out that improvisation isn’t just about making stuff up to get a laugh. It’s actually about co-creating mutually beneficial conversations.
Lisa led us through a series of games that showed us how to make small adjustments in our words have a huge impact on the quality of the interactions.
I can’t wait to tell you all about it because these skills are critical for success in just about anything – team building, job interviews, employee recruiting and retention.”
