There Actually Is An “I” In Leadership But It’s A Small “i”
The tenets of improv are crucial for collaboration and apply directly to the workplace. Through our proven leadership development techniques, we’ll help you unlock the power of the ensemble to realize your group’s full potential.
Leaders who can get comfortable with being uncomfortable inspire courageous authenticity in others.

Be nimble and curious. Stay open to possibility. Collaborate.
Being stubborn towards change will quickly render you obsolete. Through training in the art of improv, leaders learn how to best handle change and help your team adapt too.
Embrace a “yes, and” mentality, build on each other’s ideas, and foster an office culture of learning and innovating. Create an environment where people feel gratitude for their work.
Leaders who create that collaborative space yield more original ideas and creativity from the team. It’s not rocket science: when you support and value your people, they’re more willing to participate and take risks.
