Why is this so important? The speed of business today requires teams to decide fast, learn fast and gain buy-in from all stakeholders involved. In Daniel Pink's book, To Sell is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others, he highlights improv skills as a necessary competency for everyone. This quote sums it up. In improv, you never try to get someone to do something. That's coercion, not creativity, Salit says. You make offers, you accept offers" and a conversation, a relationship, a scene, and other possibilities emerge. Your role is to help move others to accomplish agreed upon goals. Using the Improv Advantage, your job gets easier!
