How can improv unleash your team’s creativity and help build on big ideas?
In improv, performers must constantly generate new ideas, respond to unexpected developments, and make connections between disparate elements.
In this Teamraderie experience, a Stanford University-based Education and Outreach and Diversity and Inclusion professional joins you live. Your team will participate in three interactive exercises – and reflect on learnings from each. In the “Blank” Game, you will learn the link between what is ‘obvious’ and what is ‘creative’. In the “I am a Tree” Game, you will flex your connection-building muscles. And in the “Yes and” Game, you will practice opening doors and allowing ideas to flourish.
Each game will build on the preceding exercise to give your team tools to act on their big ideas.
This experience is recommended for any team looking for simple, effective games to play together that can be practiced on your own throughout the year.
You will be assigned one of our acclaimed creator hosts to lead your experience.
