Second City Communications, the business training division of the world
renowned improvisational comedy theatre - The Second City, has
launched an innovative professional development workshop called Improv
for Lawyers, which is designed to strengthen essential skills
critical for success.
Improv for Lawyers draws on Second City's more than ten years
experience working with law firms and bar associations to train lawyers
to meet key challenges confronting them daily.
"It turns out our worlds are more similar than you might think. Both
improvisers and lawyers need to listen, read a room, think on their
feet, respond to the unexpected, generate new ideas and approaches on
the spot - and collaborate effectively on teams," said Toronto-based
Sandy Marshall, vice president, Second City Communications. "Our Improv
for Lawyers Workshop is excellent for building skills in those critical
areas," Marshall added.
The Law Society of Upper Canada recently accreditd Improv for
Lawyers for Continuing Professional Development credits in both
Professionalism and Substantive Content.
Second City Communications improvisation experts focus on the following
learning objectives and topics: using the improv concept of "Yes, And"
as a communication tool; enhanced negotiation skills and the ability to
"think on your feet"; focused listening to receive messages more
effectively; the importance of correct word choices; listening with
authenticity; managing change more effectively; and recognizing ways to
support communication from others.
