Physician Improv – No Comedians Necessary – Storytelling
People tell stories every day. They’re an essential part of human communication. But how do you make a story compelling? In this session, participants will build on the skills they learned over the previous sessions to develop techniques for telling interesting stories on their own and with partners. Through active listening, agility, and brainstorming, participants will better understand how to tell a story that’s entertaining, memorable, and even informative. We will also spend time focusing on our audience and how to craft our message for their listener, not for our own goals as the speaker. By practicing effective storytelling skills, you’ll become a better communicator with your patients and colleagues.
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.
