Go With It: Embrace the Unexpected to Drive Change is culled from decades of working with business innovators. Teams caught up in old patterns of thought and action? With improvisation, they can prepare, play, and think upside down to find new and innovative answers. The author shows how anyone can learn to be more creative, innovative and better at managing change. It just takes flexibility, humor, and focus that’s improv.
One reason public speaking is such a nightmare for so many people is that they think they have to be “perfect.” They drive themselves crazy trying to conform to all sorts of handed-down rules that tie them up in knots and put their audiences to sleep. Karen Hough says you can throw out those rules, relax, be yourself, make “mistakes,” and connect with your audience much more effectively than the guy with the impeccable PowerPoint slides.
