One of the classes we teach at The Unified Scene Theater (80 T Street NW, Bloomingdale, DC), entitled Improv For Business Leaders (Present and Future), was profiled yesterday by local NPR affiliate WAMU as well as on the nationally syndicated program on NPR, "All Things Considered." This class, one of our more popular ones, teaches individuals to be better leaders, colleagues, and collaborators in their organizations using the principles that inform successful improvisational comedy: listening, being present, checking your ego at the door, and corralling around ideas to improve and enhance them. These "soft skills" have been gaining traction in the corporate world, as more and more organizations are waking up the to idea that their most important resource are the people in their orgs, who create the culture daily and can be pivotal in providing customers, clients, and stakeholders with the experiences that help drive bottom lines.
