Every day we deal with the unplanned and the unexpected, from a broken toaster to losing (or gaining) a major client or navigating our way through a global pandemic. Our natural ability to improvise gets us through. But we feel as if we’re winging it, rather than acting with courage and conviction.
First published in 2013 and now fully updated, Robert Poynton shares his acclaimed method taught to some of the world's biggest brands and companies, including Nike, Chanel and PwC, to show us how simple improvisational skills can be applied to the everyday business of work and life.
It's a practice that helps us to navigate life's daily obstacles and remind us how the unplanned and the unexpected can be a source of wonder and delight - leading to moments of serendipity or thoughts and ideas we wouldn't have otherwise have had.
