Are you Head of L&D / HR (or equivalent position) and:
Are you open to discover a new way for employee knowledge and skill acquisition in order to help meet your organization’s business needs?
Would you like to see a new approach where people effectively deal with change?
Would you like to explore a hands-on experience in developing soft-skills needed for successful team work and leadership?
Then this experiential learning workshop will give a glance at techniques and mindsets from the field of applied improvisation that can benefit individuals, teams and organisations.
WHAT IS APPLIED IMPROVISATION
Applied improvisation stems historically from improvisational theater where actors perform on stage without a script and create a unique story each time. This very demanding environment requires a specific set of skills and attitudes, which overlap with the required skillset needed in a dynamic business environment.
Applied improvisation uses the tools and mindsets in nontheatrical settings that result in personal development, team building and innovation. Many corporations around the globe have been already incorporating applied improvisation into their training curriculum.
In this session we will explore a selection of improv' exercises (experiential learning) and then connect them to the daily business challenges (de-brief).
