Performers have been doing it for centuries. Now, for the first time, Robert Lowe, a pioneer in the field of improvisation, hands you the techniques you need to think on your feet, and shows you how to apply them in your workplace or classroom. The business world may be changing at breakneck speed, but this ancient form of theater is as effective as ever. The same techniques that improvisational actors use to increase their confidence; the same methods of humor through which they establish a strong rapport with their audience; the effective ways they use body language and voice for greater clarity and impact-all can go to work for you in the world of business.

Professional reviews

"Try smelling crayons without thinking of your childhood, says the author, who, with many such exercises, offers a stunning lesson on how to loosen up. Crisply read by the incomparable Edward Lewis, this production is at once scholarly, prescriptive, and just plain fun. The program offers astute ideas, especially in the kinesthetic realm, about how spontaneity can help organizations overcome communication and problem-solving blocks. The inviting and playful exercises break people out of unproductive patterns and can turn around adversarial situations. This well-done lesson offers great tools for getting organizations out of their ruts, shaking up old routines, and confronting inner blocks that prevent growth. T.W.
