Practicing how to respond to uncertainty and adapting to change in the moment are not skills most corporate environments know how to create space for. Not because they don’t get it or recognize the value, the truth is, there aren’t a lot of methodologies that allow people to simulate scenarios where VUCA, short for volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity, conditions exist and enable people to practice skills like resilience and adaptability and how to strengthen these muscles over time. Improvisation, the art of working without a script, adapting in the moment using only what you have and building something out of nothing is a novel way to tap into and to practice skills like adaptability and resilience, which are really at the core of countering the VUCA pillars. Kristy West, Certified Applied Improv Facilitator and Founder of BraveSpace will share with you how Improvisation can work to counter the four pillars within the VUCA model and how you can make it your secret weapon. In this session we will align improvisational techniques to the four VUCA pillars. 1-Volatile 2-Uncertainty 3-Complexity 4-Ambiguity -and how an improv mindset can help you navigate with ease. Learning Objectives – -Adapting to frequent, rapid and significant change in real time in a low stake’s environment. -Improvisation helps you to move forward with using only what you have in the moment and not letting the fear of the unknown keep you from progress. -Learn to manage chaos and weave unrelated, unexpected elements together. -Act without hesitation and with confidence.
