The World Economic Forum predicts that complex problem-solving, critical thinking, and creativity are the top 3 most necessary job skills by 2020. How can you both practice and sharpen these skills to be successful now and in the future? One portable and fun tool is improvisational theater.

Why improv?

Improv is an extreme workout that strengthens your creative muscles. The principles and exercises of improv can be directly applied to your professional and personal life. Improv is about saying yes, being present, and inclusive –––not about being funny or performing on a stage. It means leaving your ego behind, helping others shine and navigating complexity with confidence.

Who should attend?

This workshop is open to people at all levels and industries who want to develop a leader’s mindset.

What to expect:

Terri and Lisa will guide you through exercises during which you will experience the power of yes, practice spontaneity and activate your imagination. You will practice skills like adding-on to what others are saying and doing, generating solutions with little or no prep time, and thinking on-your-feet. Be ready to try new and unfamiliar things, play and reflect. You will alternate between being a participant and an observer. During our time together we will co-create a laugh-until-you-cry playful experience.


You will practice:

  • Recognizing patterns and adapting to emerging needs
  • Being in-service of individuals and groups
  • Creating on-the-fly with limited time and resources
  • Adding value with both words and actions
