© ThoughtWorks, 2006 Customer Focused You have an onsite customer – the audience Their delight and satisfaction is the ultimate goal Can you align your enjoyment with theirs? How? – Listen to them – Use your skill and expertise to deliver on your promises Remember that you are there for them. – Enjoy yourself – Not at the expense of the audience
© ThoughtWorks, 2006 Improv Spirit! Offering and Accepting are at the heart of improvisation What is an Offer? Its anything you say…. … or anything you do. So long as your partner accepts it Accepting is easy. Its all about the magic word. YES
© ThoughtWorks, 2006 Bad Medicine That seems easy enough but sometimes its hard to relinquish control People try to take control by: – Negating offers – Rejecting action – Saying NO This is BLOCKING. Its real bad. Being half-hearted is just as bad – WIMPING For that matter wise-cracking is as bad as blocking. No GAGGING
© ThoughtWorks, 2006 Be simple, be special When the going gets tough remember your Improv Spirit. Keep it simple: – Be obvious – Be ordinary – Be fun (not funny!) The hardest skill to master – How will I look brilliant?
