Do Improvise: Less Push. More Pause. Better Results. A New Approach to Work (and Life) by Robert Poynton£8.46
EMMA SUE SAYS: “A great little book on the power of USING improv principles in life and at work.”
Everyday we deal with the unplanned and the unexpected – from a broken toaster to losing (or gaining) a major client. Our natural ability to improvise gets us through. But we feel as if we re winging it, rather than acting with courage and conviction. Robert Poynton teaches an acclaimed method to some of the world s biggest brands and companies. Improvisational skills that an actor might use on stage are honed and applied to the everyday business of work and life. The end result is a new approach that embraces change as a natural process and has creativity and innovation at its heart. With killer games to put the theory into practice, Do Improvise will help you: Become more productive without trying harder; Overcome creative blocks and generate new ideas; Respond fluently to circumstances beyond your control Inspire and motivate others; Not sure what to do next? Improvise.
EMMA SUE SAYS: “I love this book because it emphasises that it’s not about luck or talent when it comes to success or going for your dreams but much more about your own attitude to persevering and how you respond when you get a setback. Build your grit and you’ll be successful – simple.”
