Business and creative leaders are looking for new ways to solve problems and build an adaptable workforce for our ever-changing, on-demand world. What better way to foster in-the-moment problem solving than to utilize the techniques of improvisational theater?

Why improv?
Improv is an extreme workout to get creative muscles into shape. It’s about being present, listening and responding. It’s moving out of your comfort zone, leaving your ego at the door and building trust.

What to expect:
Our instructors will guide you through improv exercises during which you’ll experience the power of yes, stretch your spontaneity and activate your imagination. You’ll add on to the ideas of others, generate solutions with little or no prep time, and conduct on-your-feet thinking. Switching from player to audience member, both roles incorporate observation, reflection and self-discovery, not to mention laugh-until-you-cry playfulness.

Who should attend?
This workshop is geared towards managers, supervisors and others with direct reports.


  • Clearly articulate your ideas to an audience
  • Create in the moment using limited resources
  • Listen, be real and be relevant in your response
