What workshop participants are saying
The following comments were made by those who experienced improv training. They were made either in business offices, conferences, classrooms, or teaching sessions.
Bill Prinzivalli’s improv session helps any organization hone their communications skills which are essential when interacting with colleagues, prospects, and clients. We are all in a relationship business – that’s how work gets done. Sign your company up for Bill’s program and watch barriers come down creating greater understanding between individuals.
Bill’s improv workshop helped me to listen with empathy. It’s so easy to be thinking about my own contribution to the conversation instead of listening for both verbal and tonal clues to really understand what the other person is trying to say. The improv trains you to listen for clues in tone and body language to truly understand what people are saying. This is an important skill for me and Bill designed exercises that made learning it easy and fun.
Bill, through his improvisation approach, helped me to be a much better listener and to make better connections with the people I meet. Bill has really helped me in my networking efforts.
I frequently feel like I’m talking into the wind, and I’m very uncomfortable not knowing if my words landed. This happens at home and at work. I finally spoke up. Once I understood that I WAS truly being listened to, then I felt heard and more comfortable to speak again. Less stress.
There is constant change and sometimes chaos – clear communications and trust go a long way to a positive conclusion.
