Train the Trainer: Applied Improv

Are you a trainer or program and meeting facilitator who is interested in learning how to bring applied improvisation into your skills toolbox?  I don't blame you -- Applied Improv is exploding in popularity, and it is both an incredibly useful tool and fun for trainers AND trainees when done well!

We will:

  • Play games and participate in a variety of activities designed to highlight and activate specific skills in trainees

  • Discuss the uses of, growth of, and structure of applied improv

  • Practice leading applied improv programming

  • Leave with books and other resources to continue to grow our knowledge and skills in applied improv going forward

Next Program: TBD

Negotiating, Communicating, & Listening Our Way to Being Better Leaders

Improv For Everyone

Once a month, I offer a free 1-2 hour improv session, either as a sampler of improv itself or applied improv on a specific topic or aimed at a specific skill development.  No experience is necessary, and each time will be a different overall experience!  It is completely free, but advanced registration is required (as well as a commitment to have fun!).

If demand for a specific topic is high, an additional time will be added.

April & May: 

April & May's Improv for Everyone have been cancelled. We look forward to seeing you at future events!
