Clowning for leading, coaching and life (I): beginner madness
Time & Location
About the Event
The course is an intensive introduction to the theatre clown, an art form, which brings you to into contact with all your senses and in full contact with your environment. Here are four reasons, why the clown and the related theatre methods are so powerful for professional and personal life: Discovering the clown ...
1. ... is sheer self-discovery: The clown helps to leave behind the conventionalities and conformisms we are trapped in in our daily lives. It is personally a truly liberating experience to re-enter a mode of play, in which the fear of being judged by others is switched off and to find out the unchartered worlds that lie behind.
2. ... is improving customer relationship building: The clown is in full connection to his/her inner world of intuition and emotions and relentlessly displays them. This can be very helpful if you want to better listen and rely your intuition, especially in challenging or threatening moments. It helps to naturally respond to clients like students or corporate partners and helps very much to improve customer relationships as such.
3. ... is finding true fun with public speaking: The clown lives only when s/he is seen by an audience. To be in connection with any audience, to fully receive and capitalize on an audience’s energy is essential to his/her success. Going through the program helps you substantially to feel at ease when speaking in public, making an audience laugh and helping the audience to trust you.
4. ... lets you find the immense value of going off script: There are moments, when everything around us just falls apart and our nicely developed plans don't work anymore. The clown gives you all the comfort to find access to an even better alternative that awaits you in the moment of the worst surprise. Being in clown mode helps to find out new, undiscovered ways to live in full joy, in full intensity and with quite some reorientation and relaxation about what is really important. Ah, and did I mention already that it's that its a true fun ride all together producing tears of laughter?
