Foot in your mouth when thinking on your feet?

Did you know that I am a comedian?   (That’s not a joke, by the way).


You see, when I am not working on Pitch Perfect Club or spending time with my son, you will probably be able to find me in a local comedy club.   I specialise in improvisation, and even run workshops about “thinking on your feet.” So, I thought it would be a good idea to talk to you about the importance of thinking on your feet in business.


Interested to hear more? You can hear me talk about thinking on your feet at our next Pitch Perfect Club night - 2nd October 2014. Book now! In the meantime…..


Double improv and then PE


You’ll remember there was a distinct lack of improvisation classes at your school. You probably didn’t do a BA in Improv when you went to University. But don’t worry – it’s never too late to learn how to think on your feet.


Improvising – thinking on your feet - is a really important skill for all of us. And, as such, we need to practise and develop it. Some people are naturally better than it than others. But there’s nothing stopping you from improving this skill.


You can start boosting your improv skills today


Being able to think on your feet is not blagging. It’s also not a replacement for knowledge. In fact, I think being good at thinking on your feet means you can share your knowledge in the most effective way.


Before we start working on your improvisation skills, please spend a few days noticing when you are thinking on your feet.


Make a note every time you improvise during:


  • Everyday conversations

  • Business meetings

  • Networking


Check out my next blog for another “thinking on your feet” skill boost.
