This year, I took a couple of classes that taught me the beauty of limiting options–or thinking within a box.
They weren’t business classes–they were Improvisation (Improv) Classes. My friend, Susan Brownfield, runs Boutique Theater Basel, and she was starting an improv class with Pharmaceutical Executive, and Second-City Trained Jennifer Cain Birkmose as the teacher. “Do this!” she begged me.
I resisted. I’m an HR person, and we don’t believe in being funny.
But, off I went, willing to make a fool of myself to help a friend.
Instead, I got helped.
