What’s improvisation got to do with your psychological strengths?
If you’re keen on strengths-based psychology, you’ll love Applied Improvisation. The strengths movement is all about finding out what you are good at. It’s not so interested in your weaknesses or failings, as these are not the things likely to help you in life.
You’ll flourish when you identify your strengths and remember to apply them. The first part might be pretty easy as your strengths are readily apparent much of the time – it’s mostly a task of noticing how you do well when you do well.
And this idea of encouraging you to use your talents connects with the most fundamental concept in Applied Improvisation, which is to make use of what is there.
It is an obvious though much neglected truth that you cannot use what isn’t there – gaps, missing skills, stuff you are not able to do – so pay that no attention for now (although you may later want to do something about it, of course), and focus on what is there, what is possible.
This single shift can be a life-changer, as I have seen many, many times. What do you think?
