"In the long history of humankind those
who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively
have prevailed." --Charles Darwin
Looking for something completely different? This fun program designed for smaller groups (6 - 20 persons)
will have you laughing your way
through games and exercises drawn from the world
of improv comedy.
Have you seen Drew Carey's TV series "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" What those performers do
looks amazing! Almost magic! In fact, they are playing by a set of rules the audience is not aware of.
It makes their performance appear seemless and brilliant. Now imagine if your people used those same skills, techniques
and rules of communication and cooperation in the workplace. These are the secrets our facilitator
will share with your group. But don't worry. We don't expect your group to perform like seasoned comedians.
No one has to be funny. No one is put on the spot. The goal is not to
entertain each other. The goal is to explore the mechanics of human interactions
in non-personal, non-threatening ways. The goal is to practice a variety
of skills that are as useful in the boardroom as on the comedy stage. By the end of the
program you’ll be exhausted, as much from the laughter as the challenge; amazed and enlightened
by yourself and your coworkers.
