In this interview, Jessie and I discuss ways in which improv practices can be used to improve your listening skills, develop your ability to read the room, and find more effective ways to respond.
Personal Note: Jessie is brilliant, kind, and extremely patient. During the latter half of the conversation, I asked Jessie about one of the ways I often try to emphasize certain points in class or when I am presenting. In a supportive, kind, and patient way, she helped me see how that "habit" can impact the folks I am working with. I got completely schooled and I am grateful to her for the lesson.
