»In the past, Improvisation skills were rarely on the agenda for human resource developers. Today we know: Skillful improvisation on the job – a positive approach to the unexpected – often gives organisations a decisive advantage

Overview

Today, improvising on the job is a core competence. However, our “Improvisation skills in business” training is not improv theatre, but a sustainable, effective business training. It is particularly successful because the exercises in applied improvisation have more than just a cognitive effect – they have an emotional effect, too.

The learning objectives and content can be adapted to your needs. Our method is suitable for training the most diverse competences of your employees and taking into account completely different disciplines such as sales, marketing, PR, innovation departments and more.

Through the methodology of applied improvisation, teams can improve and reflect on their cooperation, communication behaviour, solution orientation and presentation skills as well as creativity and innovation processes.

Who is this for?

For those who want to develop a solution-oriented mindset

For anyone who wants to say “Yes, but …” much less often

For those who want to deal more flexibly with unpredictability and change

For those who want to get new input for ways of cooperating

Contents

Training goals and content can be agreed on an individual basis. Here are some examples:

  • Getting to know the improv mindset and the basic attitudes of improvisation
  • Dealing with the unexpected: Learning to recognise opportunities and say “Yes, and …” instead of “Yes, but …
  • Training an open and positive attitude towards the new and unexpected
  • Solution, rather than problem-orientation
  • Clear and positive communication
  • Dealing with mistakes and failure: Why fear is normal but particularly obstructive when it comes to innovation or change
