Program One: Collaboration and Communication
Objectives (customized to your needs): teambuilding, team bonding, leadership development, innovation.
Program Description: Through a series of fun, on-your-feet activities based on improvisational theatre techniques, participants explore skills such as listening, collaboration, releasing pre-conceived agendas, adapting to change, committing to choices with confidence, multi-tasking, and creative thinking. The program is designed to create a safe environment in which participants feel comfortable letting go of inhibitions, laughing and seeing each other in a new light. No one is singled out for performance – everything is group-based and supportive. After each exercise, our expert facilitator leads a discussion in which participants examine the skills needed to perform the exercise successfully, and how they can immediately apply these new skills to enhance productivity in the workplace.
Time: 2 hours
Participants: 8 - 50 (For 20 – 50 participants: we run simultaneous identical sessions with up to 20 participants per group, and would need separate spaces for each group divided by soundproof walls.)
Space Requirement: wide open space – a room without tables; chairs pushed to the periphery; enough space for all participants to stand comfortably in a circle with about a foot between each person.
Program Two: Collaboration and Communication -- Demo with Workshop
