Improvisation for Businesses

Creativity is a key trait for the success of businesses and teams. A collaborative space free of judgement or failure can make an ideal environment for people to improve self-esteem, confidence, and innovation.

Applied Improvisation uses methods that are collaborative and creative. Built deeply inside these methods is the experience of fast failure, team working, creative thinking and inclusion.

“Improv has a place in the world of mediation. Moments from this training will help our mediators to cope with the unexpected as well as enhancing our ability to develop rapport with clients.”
Chief Exec, Mediation Hertfordshire.

More about Applied Improvisation

Improvisation, or ‘improv’, is a method in which the ideas, stories and processes are made up in the moment. There are no lines to rehearse and the improv process is highly creative. No acting skills are required.

Studies have shown that the skills from improvisation can help with better management of unexpected changes, uncertainty and increased team collaboration. Participants exhibit lower levels of anxiety and increased creativity. This better enables us to absorb new ideas. It also allows decision making breakthroughs by creating a common sense of direction.

We offer two types of improv sessions: Improv for Creativity in Organisations, which focuses on breaking down barriers to creative thinking, and Improv for Wellbeing, which develops participants’ confidence and openness.

What happens during Applied Improv?

We embed our Improv games and tools into your learning or workshop. Our improv experts are also trained facilitators  and trainers, examples where we have embedded improv games and tools include:

  1. Process Excellence Workshops
  2. Service Innovation Workshop
  3. Project Management Training
  4. Service Delivery Training
  5. Mediation Peer to Peer Training

Benefits of our approach

We can create tailored courses for standalone or multiple sessions encompassing different stakeholder groups. Our sessions are based on your requirements and can last from two hours to a whole day.

The improv sessions will be conducted by our experts who have studied and practised improv formally and also have extensive experience of facilitation and operational processes within business settings.

Up to 20 of your staff can participate, making it a value for money investment per person. Alternatively, we can also run a tailored class for well-being or creativity. We can also conduct Improv based workshops virtually (using zoom).
