IMPROV WORKSHOPS

Improv comedy workshops provide a great alternative to other activities to bond employees for many reasons. The primary reason is that the structure allows for a very easy review of learned material while maintaining the illusion of not being a training session. We pass the ideas along and mention their value while also showing how the event is truly meant just for enjoyment.

IMPROV WORKSHOPS

GETTING TEAMS TO LAUGH AND JOKE TOGETHER


Our improv comedy workshops have proven to be a great way to get employees to bond in an environment that feels anything but like a workshop. Instead of feeling like an obligation, we have participants feel that the event is a reward of some kind. They then respond by simply enjoying the gathering and creating comedic experiences that everyone in attendance shares.

yes and

THE CONCEPT OF YES AND
It all begins with the concept of accepting ideas from those around you and helping to push those concepts forward. This means that everyone feels invested in the project and that their input was valued. There are many exercises that utilize this concept and can be done in a variety of nuanced approaches to achieve different results.

BENEFITS OF IMPROV WORKSHOPS

LAUGHTER CAN ACCOMPLISH YOUR GOALS

team building

TEAM BUILDING - BONDING

The most common desire of our clients is simple bonding of the employees. The concept of Yes And gets the employees to listen to each other and to take concepts to comedic extremes that get them laughing together. They support the ideas of others and advance them to invest in that show of support.

OVERCOMING SILO MENTALITY

An offshoot of bonding is to get employees from different areas to feel a part of a larger whole. By seeing themselves as employees of the company rather than simply from a particular group it can enhance esprit de corps as well as bringing up new possibilities as employees have a desire to take actions to help their friends in other work-groups in the company. This can create new efficiencies and help the bottom line.

sales training

ENHANCING SALES

Clients do not like to hear the word 'no' or to be ignored. Using the concept of Yes And we assist sales teams to learn to take the needs and concerns of clients in mind when talking about your products and services. It enhances the client experience as well as to boost success rates. There are many ways sales benefits from our programs.

executive training

EXECUTIVE TRAINING

The skills that make a good leader are often prevalent in an improviser. Having the ability to quickly work through many sources of input, encouraging that input, then making a decision and moving forward while having those involved in the process feeling appreciated can create a team that feels empowered and motivated to achieve success. That only happens if you have the skills to listen to varied input and coming up with ways of incorporating ideas into a potentially outside the box solution.

creativity workshops

CREATIVITY

Listening to others is more than just hearing the words. It usually entails seeing something from another perspective. Understanding where someone is coming from enhances communication and leads to clarity of thought and innovations that would never have otherwise been available. After all, by bouncing ideas back and forth, new ideas are generated that would have never seen the light of day without the influence that others had on the final outcome.

mental agility

MENTAL AGILITY

Having the ability to react and adjust thinking is vital in business. Being able to think on your feet can make all the difference in presentations, sales, meetings and just about everything else that makes business happen. Our improv workshops help participants to think on their feet and to gain more confidence in themselves. Knowing that you can handle yourself makes you better able to do so.

why comedy

WHY COMEDY
Having people laugh along the way makes them more open to new ideas and more likely to take lessons to heart. We bring funny people that can deliver serious amounts of information in an amusing manner. This helps to make any session more effective.

coronavirus

WE CARE FOR YOU! We have methods and techniques to operate with a variety of social distancing, PPE safety equipment, and remote sessions. We consult with you to best determine your concerns and needs and take them into account when determining the best way to work with your team.

OUR GREEN COMMITMENT While ultimately we serve our clients in the way that they require, we work hard to reduce the carbon footprint of any event. We recycle, utilize local talent when preferable, and look to leave places better than we found them. When we do travel, we take pains to reduce our impact on the environment.

green events

We provide improv workshops for companies throughout the United States, and even beyond! Wherever you might be along the Atlantic Coast, the MidWest, the South, the West Coast, or anywhere else, we stand ready to help your group to have fun. This includes in the big cities, the suburbs, or further outside the urban areas. We do not provide the food or the venue. We come to you and help you to succeed in business without really trying!

food venue

WE COME TO YOU!
We work with groups that are small, medium and large. We also work with people that are in the city, the suburbs, and that are in more rural areas. It never made sense to get our own facilities. We come to a venue of your choosing and this allows you to make your own food and beverage options. In general, you want enough light to see, enough space to move around comfortably, and it should be quiet enough to hear. Everything else can be adjusted to.

WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW

1

WHAT IS THE REASON?

The first step is to determine your needs. This includes potential goals, desires and concerns. The more we know about what has already been decided can allow us to narrow the conversation to approaches that interest you.

2

WHAT ARE THE DETAILS? WHERE? WHEN? HOW MANY?

We need to know the city where the event will be as well as what kind of venue might be used. A date, or date range, for when you would like to have this and what time frame you are looking for will help to determine our commitment and availability. Knowing the size of your group, though that will likely just be an estimate, will allow us to choose appropriate options and have a better feel for the resources required.

3

DO YOU HAVE A BUDGET?

If you know budget limitations, that can allow us to restrict the conversations to those options that will be within your financial constraints. This works in both directions. We don't want to overbuild and propose options that can't be done. Also, we don't want to provide less than we could realizing the resources that could be made available to better achieve your goals.
