Status and Power Improv
Are you as powerful as you need to be? Do you over power the room and rub people the wrong way?
Why is that? What if there was something you could do about it?
In improvisation, in order to create realistic and compelling characters we study status. That is, how does how we carry ourselves impact our relationship status with other people and how does it change in relation to others?
In this session, we'll explore status, and play with making ourselves more or less powerful. We'll then examine how this plays out in our work environments and how we need to adjust our status depending on which groups or individuals we're interacting with.
You'll also learn the one status trick that will dramatically increase your chances of getting hired in your next interview.
