How To Leverage Improv Comedy to Generate More Sales and Increase Your Chances Of Success During Negotiations
Lisa Fey is a keynote speaker and author of IMPROVe Your Communication. She was also a global sales executive at the Coca-Cola Company for over 30 years.
This interview, like Lisa’s book, is practical and fun!
Learn from a 30+ year global sales executive for one of the world’s most respected brands about how to increase your likelihood of success in sales and negotiations by using improv comedy.
No, this isn’t a joke!
Improv comedy teaches active listening, creating “win-win-win” experiences for everyone on stage (via “Yes, and…”), and forces you to ask the right questions for the moment. These are all great habits to build as a salesperson or entrepreneur.
In her post-corporate career, Lisa has commanded multiple TEDx stages, performed improv theater, and left her footprints upon every continent on the planet. As she describes it, Lisa delivers to her audiences, “the perspectives of a seasoned executive, the freshness of a comedienne, and the authenticity you’d expect from a gal who grew up in a Southern farm community of 800.”
