Improv Workshops - Business Workshops in Pittsburgh | The Improv Agency

When work gets hectic, we tend to stop listening to each other and ourselves. The result is that we miss opportunities for new ideas and collaboration. While collaboration is often a requirement in the workplace, most people have not been specifically trained on HOW to keep an open mind and build on each other’s ideas. Most of us make it up as we go, right? That’s how we know improv is meant for everyone. 


We leverage our key pillars of improvisation, DON’T THINK, MAKE BOLD CHOICES, TRUST, LISTEN, AGREE, and CELEBRATE FAILURE, to build on the human desire to be heard, feel safe and feel connected. Our improv programs exercise your greatest human resources: openness, agility, and comfort with experimentation, allowing you to unlock your team’s ability to reconnect to your own instincts and to each other in the spirit of play and collaboration.

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.

Next, we interview you and key team members to determine which of our improv pillars will effect maximum impact on your goals/objectives. From there, we design a plan-of-action that includes numerous improv warm-ups and exercises suited to your needs.

What others thought of our work

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.
