- All communications is a means to an end goal.
- Our communication is a gift we give others.
Too often, people blabber on, forgetting that they have an agenda (usually benevolent). People often fail to show their listeners the respect they deserve, asking them to be a part of the solution, and facilitating action-oriented communications.
This Improv exercise was fascinating to me because it stripped down communications solely to forward movement. I was able to experience and truly appreciate the pure momentum of targeted, respectful, and shared dialogue. I loved the ability to practice endowing my partner with gifts of both verbal and body language, absent a focus on any strategy other than to move forward.
I am greatly enjoying, and learning from, deconstructing the act of communicating!
