Acting is uniquely human. In fact, acting can be a misnomer because when it is done well, acting is all about being real – and authentic.
Actors are great communicators. That’s because they are highly skilled in empathy and they have the ability to see things from multiple perspectives. They are able to put themselves in someone else’s shoes and ask - what would be important for me to hear if I was this person, and in what way would it have the greatest possible impact?
Actors are also able to teach the functional skills of communicating. We all have a voice – actors can teach you how to use it influentially and how to tell stories. Actors communicate emotions and situations with such clarity that it makes a mark on us. It is memorable and it elicits a response.
In addition, learning from actors allows business to experience the perspective of the actor – a different, creative, perspective that can spark innovation and turn existing problems on their head.
There is much to be learned from actors that can give your organisation the x-factor. At Live Culture Company, our Actor-in-Residence program gives you a unique insight into how these skills can be applied in a business communication context.
