Business and Improvisation together...who knew!
Improvisation by definition is a team sport. Team issues rank in the top three problems businesses face. Therefore it only makes sense that the two would merge in Karen Hough's book, "The Improvisation Edge-Secrets to Building trust & Radical Collaboration at Work" Karen communicates through stories, examples, quotes and suggested application exercises the four secrets of improvisation. unlike theory books that whet your appetite and then leave you hungry for more, this book offers practical applications for each of its "secrets". What do all the secrets have in common? They develop trust among the team and the organization. Why trust? Trust allows adaptation and collaboration on the highest levels. Karen teaches that low trust equals stress and stress makes us stupid-literally. Under stress our IQ declines. We can't remember as well, learn or make good decisions. If companies learn the four behavioral secrets: positivity and creativity in the workplace, taking something small and building it to the exceptional, leveraging the combined power of the team and understanding that the unexpected often yield the greatest discoveries...positive results will occur! Buy the book, read the book, apply the principles of improv into your business. Then stand back and watch the amazing results.
