We recently had Jon Trevor from Improv Initiative deliver a half day workshop for our team using Applied Improv techniques. Our aim was to provide some fun and a new experience for our team with a focus on exercises that would help us a build a high performing team that could face challenges and overcome obstacles to achieve our aims.
We had a series of group based and paired exercises using techniques that focussed on fun and playful activities that impacted on how we negotiated, dealt with challenges and made changes in order to achieve an objective. The exercises were all great fun and there were a lot of laughs. Some feedback from my team included that it made them think about the language they used and the approach they had to dealing with challenges and, how we could accommodate each other as a team in order to achieve shared objectives. Jon was extremely personable and encouraging and enthusiastic in getting people to step out of their comfort zones and try something new.
