We’ve been asked if improv can help with conflict management.
Yes, yes it can. Because improv makes you stop and listen. It makes you listen to what the other person is actually saying. It makes you see from their viewpoint. Someone who is being listened to, someone whose viewpoint is being taken into account, is less likely to be aggressive, less likely to be obstructional, less likely to spend time and energy making your life and public image unpleasant.
So yes, the skills learned in improv can be used in conflict management.
