Workshops & Trainings


IMPROV FOR WORKGROUPS & ORGANIZATIONS

I energize organizations with easy-to-learn improvisation exercises that get group members on their feet, laughing and learning. Games include Yes, And…; Word Ball; Permission Circle. Participants who have worked together for years get to know each other in a new way. Outcomes: better working relationships and teamwork, increased listening and communication skills, enhanced creativity and idea generation.

IMPROV & WELLNESS

With my background in psychology, I grab participants’ attention with the latest brain science, and then lead them in the real-time experience of their brains literally exploring creative new neural pathways. Games include “Point and Shout,” “Go!” and “Yes, And.” Outcomes: a fresh approach to creativity and innovation.

STORY for WORKGROUPS

I teach the fundamentals of Story Structure with fun and creative exercises, leading to an exploration of the story of the organization, the workgroup, and the participants. Outcomes: a deeper grasp of group purpose, and an increased commitment to group goals.

ORGANIZATIONAL DYNAMICS

As an experienced counselor and group facilitator, I can also lead serious discussions on organizational topics which leaders would like the group to explore.  A serious session or two can be woven into a day or afternoon that also includes stress-reducing “playtime” with the improvisation games. Outcomes: a safe place to discuss workplace challenges, group problem-solving & goal-setting, enhanced team-work.
