Improv for Business

Improv for Business

Are you wondering how improvisational comedy can help you in business?  Many organizations (Google, PepsiCo, McKinsey, etc.) and MBA programs (Duke, MIT, UCLA, and Stanford) are using improv sessions in their curriculum.  Improv skills help people learn to think on their feet, improve their listening skills, and become more open to collaboration.

The Second City comedy theatre and school of improvisation says three of the key lessons of improv are:  embrace the ensemble, take responsible risk, and follow the follower.  You can read more about these lessons here.

This Improv for Business workshop will help you build listening skills, develop more openness to collaboration and grow your creative problem-solving brain all while having a blast.
