The secret to performing your roles in business lies in the Actions you play, with the Audiences you serve, and your focus and energy as Actor on your business stage.
Business leaders are really Actors on a stage. Although they may not see themselves as such, they play different personas – leader, mentor, speaker, negotiator, board member, motivator – in the daily dramas of their jobs. Not pretending to be someone else, but rather basing your performance on authenticity and then stretching, believably, into roles less comfortable. And often, you’re challenged by a stressful interaction with Audience members with whom you have to work. What do you do then? How do you improve your performance in the roles you play while adapting to demanding, disparate Audiences? Do you really know how to act or behave on your business stage? What are the foundational principles and techniques you use in your performance?
Based on an actual executive coaching session “How to Act in Business” engages readers through a play-scripted dialogue between two spirited characters–Bob, a new leader, and his Coach as Bob strives to reach a higher position in his company. With every emerging topic Bob discovers that he didn’t learn much in “B-school” about how to act or behave in business. As Bob considers a new approach to effective performance revealed in the coaching session, he learns to gain control in making the most active choices in planning and playing his critical roles on the business stage.
