Katie is going to a dental seminar tomorrow. I was browsing her agenda for the day's activities and it includes some "role-playing". I didn't want to scare her off or make her nervous, so I didn't say anything. But....she is not the type of person that will take well to role-playing in that type of setting.
(Unless, of course, alcohol is involved. )
This Bear has attended quite a few seminars and/or training sessions that included role-playing. Mandatory, you know, if the presenter is in that demographic that enjoys embarassing the sxxx out of the participants.
The last few times I did the role-playing thing at a seminar I took the role of the "obnoxious customer" or "obnoxious non-team player". Those are roles that I relished......and I was amazed at how I successfully morphed-into character.
.......or, maybe there was no morphing at all.....
How about you? Do some role-playing during training sessions, seminars, etc. I would bet dollars-to-donuts that many of you can really pull-off the irate homeowner at the counter, arguing about his collection of abandoned cars.
What say you?
