The improvising mindset: How every connection and interaction shapes your reality
“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players.” And you are a part of this performance of ‘life’ – which is not a pre-planned script, but an enormous emergent improvised scene. So, let’s get good at the game of improvisation. In the same way that your brain fires off two neurons creating a new neural pathway leading to new thoughts, beliefs and realities – so every interaction and connection in every relationship is doing the same. We human beings are not objects in a vacuum, we are the sum of our interactions. In her talk, Philippa shares how to become a great improviser, so that you can consciously shape your interactions and so consciously shape your life. Learn the rules of improvisation so you can play the game and more than that – you can change the game. Rethink as an improviser. Rethink how you shape your life. Rethink you.
