Our first step is to understand your team's needs and objectives. At the start of our engagements, we issue a creative questionnaire that helps us get a feel for your current situation and how we may use our methods to facilitate conversations.

What others thought of our improv for business workshops

Nishauna B.

I went into the professional development workshop assured that I wouldn’t like it. I’m a team player so I had to participate however as a very straight forward and generally serious person I knew I wouldn’t enjoy it and I was so wrong! It pushed me out of my comfort zone, in the best way possible. The leaders of the workshop that guided us through the various activities were amazing. Through these activities we were able to see the importance of listening, communication, and working together to achieve a common goal. It was an overall great experience that I would definitely recommend for other businesses or groups.

Darby T.

This was just what our team needed—a chance to have fun, play, and support one another. I will definitely be using the “Yes, and…” concept in our meetings and in my work. And might occasionally “be” a bean if we need to lighten the mood and share energy with one another.
