Improvisation is spontaneous or unscripted creation or performance—and believe it or not, it’s a future skill desired by employers for a risk-ready workforce. Great improvisation requires the abilities to accept and enhance an overture (yes, and), tell a story, listen, focus and react quickly. When you consider the onsite event experience, it’s easy to imagine how improvisation applies to a variety of challenges meeting professionals face, from unforeseen surprises and hiccups to dangerous safety incidents—and everything in between. So, what skills do improvisers have and how can you apply those skills to your role? Improvisation also transfers to other critical job skills like creativity and active listening.
