Leveraging Improvisation to Improve Collaboration Across Teams
Monday, October 16 | 1:30-3:00
In a world where we are busier than ever, and forced to do more with less, how can digital project managers continue to thrive while meeting the high demands of their day-to-day job? The answer…Improvisation! Think about it, improvisers are forced to perform under intense situations. They have to entertain a crowd without a script, and often only get a single suggestion to get started. Every performance is different, they work in large groups with different personalities and skillsets; they fail often, yet they welcome the challenge every time and do it with a smile.
In this highly interactive workshop Gary will cover how you can utilize the tools that improvisers use to make up stories out of thin air to become more agile, a better communicator, and bounce back from failure. You will also learn fun games that you can play that will level up the collaboration and connection with your teams
