Leadership Certificate Program: Improvisation & Comedy for Leadership Skills
A foundational course in improvisation will provide students with a toolkit to build their confidence in becoming a more effective communicator, storyteller, leader, and public speaker. We will work to sharpen skills to promote creativity, innovation, and collaboration through interactive and engaging theatrical activities that stimulate the ability to think on our feet and tap into our comedic instincts. A one hour course will provide introductory tips and tricks on how to translate the basic rules of improvisation to practical skills we use in our everyday lives. The activities performed in this course will go far beyond the classroom!
