Teambuilding Using Applied Improv
As the home to Philadelphia's longest-running improv comedy show, ComedySportz, CSz Philadelphia knows the power of improvisation on the field and off. Our Applied Improv Programs are a unique, fun and meaningful way to enhance collaboration and communication.
By the time your colleagues have stopped laughing, they might even realize they’ve learned something.
Building Trusting Business Relationships
The fastest way to build trusting relationships is to make the other person feel heard. Our programs build that listening muscle! Through a series of fun and powerful, on-your-feet activities participants explore the skills of the improviser: collaboration, adapting to change or disruption, committing to choices with confidence, innovation, and replacing distracting inner scripts with laser-focused listening! Our programs provide a safe environment in which participants feel comfortable exploring these new skills. All activities are done in groups or pairs -- no one is ever singled out for 'performance' because we're not teaching how to perform improv, but how to use skills of the improviser! After each exercise, our expert facilitator leads a discussion in which participants discover how they can immediately apply these new techniques to enhance business relationships and increase productivity in the workplace.
