This blog is the journey of Lorenc Consulting and Entertainment as we continue to encourage creativity and innovation by using the concepts of improv comedy in everyday life. Any kind of group or organization can benefit from our improv-based corporate training, focusing on team-building, hyper listening and communication skills, and thinking on your feet.

Thinking on your feet means having the right focus

by Toby Lorenc

We're all put in situations on a daily basis where we are forced to think on our feet. Spur of the moment meetings at work, questions from our kids, or friends putting us on the spot to come up with an answer, solution, or idea.

Some situations are easier than others to come up with a quick answer - why is that? Obviously, the topic and the personal involvement have a lot to do with it. For instance, if you're told you need to decide where the family is going out to eat, that's usually a pretty easy decision. However, if your boss asks you who he should fire next, you may take a little more time with that one!

Regardless of the topic and the level of your emotionally involvement, here's one of the key things to remember:

Focus on what you KNOW, NOT what you don't know

 

Too often, we destroy ourselves by panicking and worrying about what we don't know. This is when the cold sweats, nervous ticks, and mind blocks take over our decision making process. Instead, confidently respond based on the information you have and ask questions to make sure you fully understand the question set before you.

The concept works wonderfully, but it does take practice and training. Make a conscious decision in your mind to use this method, no matter what the situation, and you'll increase your ability to respond quickly in the future.
