Relevance to Business

LiveWire Improv is not teaching people to be comedians or improvisers but simply reaching people through improvisation techniques. The unexpected happens to everyone. Most people feel pressure when put “on the spot”. Everyone has fears and insecurities. LiveWire Improv provides the tools to make these situations work for individuals.

Companies are often risk averse. (It feels safer to say “No”.) However, there is also an imperative to innovate/ to stay ahead. There is an inherent conflict that needs to be addressed.

Using Constructive Conversations techniques, the best conditions are created to discover the answers to challenges and opportunities. LiveWireImprov calls this process of discovery, Innovation Ignition.

The techniques are explained in a light-hearted, fun presentation and then embedded through experience in the interactive workshop or series of workshops.

  • Exercises to ensure participation of all individuals
  • Confidence building
  • Communication and listening techniques
  • Skills for focus and commitment
  • Ways to “think on your feet”
