Tap into your “in the moment” leadership and communication abilities with on-your-feet practice at accepting new ideas, taking risks, building strategies and collaborating effectively. Participants learn how improv skills apply directly to their work and discover new ways to lead, listen, innovate and connect. A fresh new take on professional development and teambuilding!
It is often easier to empathize with those who are similar to ourselves than those with other backgrounds, ethnicities, education levels, personality types and generations. Using Stanislavski’s “Magic If” participants will identify the positive and negative emotions you share with those different from yourself and work through exercises for empathizing with teammates from other backgrounds. Improv exercises to foster empathy and open up dialogue to discover similarities, differences and misconceptions between teammates will be the focus.
Our curriculum is flexible and customizable so your team can work on the skills that are key to your particular business. From brainstorm warm-ups to active listening to storytelling, we have a wide range of topics to choose from.
We know the word “improv” can make people nervous, so we make sure that:
- Our training focuses on cooperation and collaboration
- Exercises are done in pairs or groups so no one is ever put on the spot
- We deliver our learning objectives through a combination of lecture, demonstration and on-your-feet improv exercises
- After each exercise, we discuss the core learning objective and how you can apply it directly to your business
DuMore Improv workshops build self-awareness about how we communicate with co-workers, managers, employees and the people we interact with every day. Honing skills like active listening, innovative thinking, risk taking and decision making transforms the way our participants perform in and out of the office.
Not only will your team learn improv and business skills that will stick with them, they’ll do it amidst lots of laughs and great stories.
