Benefits of Applied Improv Exercises
Succession planning? Onboarding new talent? How better to mentor and enhance the leadership capabilities of your new leaders than to create a leadership learning circle? Help your managers learn to communicate authentically and serve as a coach, rather than a disciplinarian, with the proven advanced interprofessional communication (IPC) skills of applied improv.
Team Building & Employee Retention
Create a culture of safety so people feel a sense of belonging and their ideas matter. Whether your industry includes nursing, healthcare, or ANY other, applied improvisational exercises emphasize soft skills that bolster Emotional Intelligence (EI). These include knowing how to: listen well, ‘read’ another person’s verbal and non-verbal communication, and have otherwise uncomfortable conversations. The result? Employees who stick around and brag about working with YOUR company because they feel fulfilled!
