1 year into living with a pandemic, working remotely and watching the line between work and home fade into the horizon, many of us are feeling stranded on the high seas with no land in sight. How can you continue to lead yourself, engage your crew, keep productivity and morale up and spark adaptability, fun and innovation in the process?

Improv combines fun and function to help leaders and teams adapt and thrive in the face of challenge and uncertainty. During this 90 minute experiential session, we’ll show you how to integrate some basic improv tools into your leadership toolkit to help boost morale and confidence, deepen connections, promote spontaneity and fun, and foster a culture of possibility, flexibility, inclusion and innovation. We’ll combine hands on exercises with short debriefs and coaching on how to apply improv in your leadership development and team building. No improv experience required. Come prepared to play.
