Life rarely follows a script, instead it’s a lot of improvisation. Here are 5 great improvisation exercises for improving your communication skills.
When it comes to communication, we like to think if only we follow the right script and say the right words then things will always work out the way we want.
Asking a girl out on a date? I need that perfect opening line. Trying to get a new job? I need to give the perfect answers in my interview. Want to persuade someone? I need to have the perfect argument in my head.
But life rarely follows a script. Instead, it’s a whole lot of improvisation.
We can never know exactly how a situation will unfold. So we need to be able to respond to information from our environment in real-time, and adapt to each situation as we go along.
There are no perfect answers. There are no perfect words. There are no perfect scripts that will give you the same exact results every time.
