The purpose of this workshop is to enhance your capacity to lead technology organizations effectively. Why are some leaders better and more successful than others? One reason involves their ability to communicate with others in the moment, to be mindful and respond to what is happening right now. We borrow techniques from improv to help you learn to better communicate with others.
Improv requires skill, preparation and practice to be able to listen, act and react in the moment. This improv workshop prepares both individual contributors and leaders how to react, adapt and communicate honestly with others. We use real world examples and cases to make this workshop immediately applicable to your workplace.
You will learn how to listen, ask questions to learn more about your boss or subordinate’s goals, objectives and interests, and to respond in ways that improve understanding and cooperation. The word “improv” brings to mind improv comedy and laughter. While this class is serious business, the workshop is engaging and entertaining while you learn.
In this highly participative class, we use case studies and real-world scenarios from the tech industry, which provide you the opportunity to learn new techniques and put them to immediate use.
