Business Improvisation for Entrepreneurs – Interview with Randy Sabourin

Why Improvisation Is a Crucial Business Skill (and How to Become Better at It) by Dan Misener

This interview took place at Ryerson University Ted Rogers School of Management as part of the Startup School in the Entrepreneurship & Strategy MBA Program.

Jazz musicians know how to do it. So do comedians. Salespeople? Not so much.

The art of improvising and thinking on your feet could be the best sales lesson you ever learn. That’s why we asked Randy Sabourin, a business improvisation specialist, to share his expertise with our TGIM listeners.

In this interview, you’ll:

  • Find out how improvisation can help you close more sales
  • Discover the four-step process to becoming a better improvisor
  • Learn two places where people often fail when it comes to improvisation
