Improvisation for Coaches in New York City

To stay at the top of our game, coaches need to stay focused, be present, remain agile to respond quickly to stimuli from the client.

Improvisation skills increase concentration, focus attention and bring confidence that you can navigate any situation. Improvisation training is fun; it takes the pressure off. NO PREVIOUS ACTING TRAINING NECESSARY.

  • listening and reacting in the moment,
  • identify the first unusual thing,
  • discover and heighten “the game,”
  • the strategy of “if this is true, what else is true?”.

Look beyond the words

Words in improv, as in life, are tools to accomplish goals. Character goals, like our clients’ goals, often are quite different from the dialogue spoken. The context helps reveals the subtext.

Accept silence and being self conscious

It is okay to be self-conscious. It is okay not to speak. Conversation is as much about the quality of silence as it is about the words spoken. Don’t be afraid to respond without words. Being self-conscious doesn’t mean we have to entertain or try to please.
