Improv Skills for the Workplace: Being Authentic!

In this course we will use improv to work on trusting your instincts and putting your authentic self out there. A common misconception in both offices and comedy is that you have to try hard to be engaging, when in fact letting go of pretense and being true to yourself is one of the best ways to garner trust in your colleagues, coworkers, and audiences. Eric has been improvising for over 10 years, and taught numerous workshops to improvisers and corporations. No previous improv or performance experience required!
