Increasing Team Performance: Improv to Improve
February 23, 2018 11:30am - 12:30pm
Facilitator: Amanda Austin, Owner/CEO Dallas Comedy House
As the business climate becomes increasingly more competitive and our workforce continues to evolve, managers are responsible for ensuring that their teams become more agile, more cohesive, and more engaged. If you manage or participate in a team or simply provide learning solutions for one, you can increase its performance by applying the basic improv philosophies. Come learn how “yes, and” and other essential elements of the art can help teams improve their production, creativity, collaboration and cohesiveness.
At the end of this session, you should be able to:
• Inspire team members to share ideas
• Enhance your team’s ability to be innovative
• Communicate more effectively as a team
• Adapt to change more readily
• Create more opportunities for team collaboration
