IMPROV 103: Improv For Business

Improv 103 applies the basics of comedy improvisation (team-building, agreement, active listening, spontaneity, and status) to professional development. Whether you're an entrepreneur, manager, salesperson, or MBA student, you will benefit from DSI's "Yes, And" approach to workplace communication and organizational development.

Improv 103 students will learn:

  • how to be fearless and funny public speakers;
  • how to cultivate a mindset (and practice) of unconditional support and positive thinking;
  • how to use spontaneity to tap into your creative potential;
  • how to be more "present," both at work and at home; and
  • the art of non-verbal communication.

See how improv can make you more effective, fun, and collaborative in the workplace! You'll benefit from the experience of a program that has trained hundreds of business professionals from across North Carolina.
