Improv performers are taught to look for agreement, problem solve, make decisions, listen carefully, think creatively, and encourage each other. Jon Colby offers workshop participants an opportunity to play various improv exercises and games. Each game is debriefed and has a powerful takeaway which can be put into practice with clients, employees, and even friends and family members. Everyone is participating during each exercise, so no one is put on the spot.
Value to members:
According the World Economic Forum, the top four skills that employers are looking for in their staff are complex problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, and people management. This improv-based workshop will give members an opportunity to improve all of these skills. Members participate in various activities and leave motivated with actionable takeaways that they put into effect immediately.
