Physician Improv – No Comedians Necessary – Agility
Agility in improv isn’t (just) about being physically able to bend and move easily. It’s about being able to think on your feet and respond to new information in a constructive manner. In this session, we’ll use exercises to build on what we learned about active listening to practice techniques that allow you to be able to pivot in the moment. This session focusses on getting participants to stop planning how a conversation is going to go so they can instead listen and react. This is not scripted and neither is life! Use the skills of agility to make you more flexible and adaptable.
No comedy skills needed! Introverts and extroverts should apply! Just come with an open mind to learn and grow. To be truly learning and thriving, you should be willing to be comfortable in the uncomfortable.
To register, you must be an active or formerly practicing physician.
