New Episode of Best Seller TV’s features author Peter Margaritis, CSP, discussing why every business leader should master the art of improv
New York, NY, December 14, 2021 — Best Seller TV, the only show dedicated to covering today’s best-selling business books on C-Suite TV, is announcing a new episode featuring Peter Margaritis, CSP, author of Off Scr!pt: Mastering the Art of Business Improv.
Margaritis tried his hand at improv in graduate school and, by his own accounts, he wasn’t “very funny.” However, he realized that improv can become a very powerful, and useful, leadership tool. Margaritis says that improv changed his life, his business, and his way of being. He hopes it helps others realize that improv isn’t about being funny, but it’s a great leadership tool to develop in today’s business landscape.
In the book, Margaritis writes about the ‘seven foundations of improv’ which starts with a foundation of “respect, trust, and support.” He adds that as long as people trust those who they work with – and they trust you, you must continue to cultivate that trust. Also, leaders should be doing everything in their power to support their teams with the right skills and tools to succeed, but if any of the three elements is missing, everything crumbles.
There is one key feature or the glue “that holds it all together.” Those two words are “yes…and.” Margaritis says that “yes/and is about the agreement but not always agreeing. It’s about empathy, collaboration, leaving your ego behind, and making it about your team.”
Margaritis says people should learn to “listen to understand, not listen to respond” because “the business that we’re all in is the people business, first and foremost.” Without people, we have no business.
All episodes of Best Seller TV air on C-Suite TV and are hosted by TV personality, Taryn Winter Brill.
Best-selling author, speaker, and former Fortune 100 CMO Jeffrey Hayzlett created Best Seller TV to give top-tier business authors a forum for sharing thought-provoking insights, in-depth business analysis, and their compelling personal narratives.
“Every business leader has had to improvise during a meeting, a virtual speech, or on stage. Despite the fact that we associate ‘improv’ with being funny, but it’s can also be an incredibly powerful tool for every business leader to have,” Hayzlett said. “This book will teach you how to become a master in pivoting and adapting to every possible situation. Watch the episode and grab your copy.”
