Our Method

Our experiential training program employs tools, techniques, and principles derived from the practice of theater improvisation — without doing ‘improv’ or asking anyone to perform — combined with modern neuroscience, organizational psychology, learning theory, and best practices of leadership. It’s change you’re after. Information doesn’t drive change. Experience does.

STRUCTURE:

The training is engaging, fun, challenging, and involves everyone equally. Fun is a tool, rather than an end in itself — our brains are wired to learn during high-arousal experiences. That’s why we promise: No ineffective, boring, PowerPoint-lecturing yak-yak. You asked for change. We aim to deliver.

Each workshop we offer follows essentially the same format. After a brief introduction and expectation setting conversation, we get participants on their feet, and begin a series of exercises.

We facilitate an exercise, designed to introduce and drill principles that support your goals. Participants are all engaged, and all challenged to extend their capacity to inhabit the principle or principles being drilled.

Then, we facilitate a conversation about the experience, the application, and the growth potential introduced by the exercise. Then, we move on to a new exercise, built upon the learning from the first. Drill, discuss, repeat with a new exercise.

The exercises employed, the principles highlighted, and the discussions that follow all are tailored to most directly support the goals that you’ve laid out for us. Repetition, engagement, and reflection cement learning and prepare participants’ minds for the formation of new habits.

The vocabulary, the concepts, and the shared experience leading to accountability help to insure that the changes last — and deepen — over time.
