Part of being in transition is being forced to shift and adapt our procedures, our listening, and our understanding. Another word for shifting and adapting is improvising. If you’ve ever wanted to hone your ability to shift and adapt—to improvise—come to the PSGCNJ general meeting on Monday, November 17, to hear Victor S. Manganaro give a presentation entitled Improv 4 Effective Business Communication.
Proactively exploring the many facets of Improv can unlock new dimensions in ourselves and how we are seen by our business peers. To help in this, Victor will host an interactive Improv mini-workshop — skimming the basics in the time allotted — that will help shift us out of our comfort zones. It will be fun, generate lots of laughs and create the potential for gaining some important insights about ourselves and communication style. The Improv exercises that Victor has specifically designed for business professionals focus on getting you to think more quickly on your feet, challenging your current communication skills, testing your listening ability, inspiring creativity, and becoming more aware and nimble. In 60 minutes, the goal is to have you gain one insight about yourself and open the door to new possibilities for your future.
