Does the idea of standing up in front of a group of people and having to think on your feet, well, freak you out a little? Or does not knowing what to expect make you just a wee bit uncomfortable? My guest today is a friend, colleague and co-conspirator who has helped me take steps to increase my confidence in these situations and more.
Leif Hansen is an experienced coach, seasoned facilitator, and creator of innovative workshops. His workshops have been featured internationally, including NBC’s Today Show.
In our conversation today, Leif and I talk about how the principles of improvisation can improve your personal and professional relationships, and how it can get us unstuck when we introverts get too much in our heads. We cover how to fail fast, build trust in yourself and get over trying to look good in favor of being authentic.
And listen carefully… we include a special offer for our Jan. 19, 2011 “Improv for Introverts” workshop in Seattle!

You are an excellent interviewer Beth. I enjoyed your questions, at-ease style and the opportunity to share about one of my main passions. I think people will love the show.

Thanks, Leif!! You were great to interview. You've taught me a lot about using improv principles to work through fears, and it's exciting to share that with others in our workshops! Happy to be partnering with you on that!

Having attended one of Beth and Leif's Improv for Introverts workshops, I can say how fun and valuable it was. I loved the group of people, and the golden opportunity to get out of my mental place and just play.
