Charisma – the joy of improv #4

Humour, Charisma’s secret sauce

Humour. It can melt icebergs and unknot the most knotty of knots in relationships, business or otherwise.

And recently I’ve re-discovered a rather nifty way to generate humour. Or practice it, at any rate. Improv.

Thanks to the equally fab Michelle Minnikin for referring it and Suzi Payton for facilitating it I now have a regular improv meeting.

Improv is mighty cool for these reasons (and more):

💬It stimulates conversation
🇲🇪 It helps you to manage your ego
🧑🏽‍🤝‍🧑🏿It’s a great team exercise
‼️ And most importantly
😂 It uncovers humour you didn’t know you had

Don’t just take my word for it. Check out this great book by Patricia Ryan Madison – Improv Wisdom.

Improv leads to humour. leads to charismatic engagement.
