Why Improvisation for Team-building?

It all starts with Listening. Fully focused Listening. Improv skills training is focused on partners completely and totally focused on one another. A good team member knows that they need to make their fellow team members look good. In Improvisational Theater my job is to serve the “scene” and my fellow improviser. If I am not 100% committed to making my partner look good and she is not 100% committed to making me look good our scene or sketch will crash and burn every time.

The same principal applies for teams in any organization.

Improv teaches us many things and chief among them is Listening, Fully Focused Listening! How often are we in a meeting or a conversation where when someone else is speaking we are already onto our next thought? Let’s be honest, in many situations teams are not really listening to what is being said in the moment. When that is the case some very important information will be missed. This can cause a downward spiral and what could be the beginning of a failed project.

When PFS is asked to conduct a workshop that is fully geared toward Teambuilding, we teach the skills necessary to allow teams to have productive outcomes during the actual team activities at the end of the workshop. We focus on Listening, Trust, Building on Ideas, Eliminating Conflict, Encouraging Communication, and Increasing Collaboration. Through our workshops teams cannot help but be “in the moment,” which creates more engaged team members.

How do we know that we have the teambuilding process right? Because our workshops create laughter, relaxation, no judgment, excitement, and finally accomplishment.

All of our exercises are based on the Yes, And philosophy. Yes, I’m listening And I’m going to build on that idea. This allows for positive results because those two simple words alone help develop genuine connections, deeper discussions, and processing, leaving a lasting impact on your team.

Call us and let us show you how one of our specially designed workshops will make your teams stronger and more effective. Teams that really trust and listen to one another!

 

Over the last number of years we’ve developed programs that have now been proven to bring long term value to organizations built on the idea that true teamwork, communication, innovation, and creativity are just a few of the critical tools needed for any company or organization to achieve true success…and by that we mean the entire team working together for the good of the organization, from the CEO down to the new intern, everyone has their role to play. And they and their ideas are to be respected and built on. We have successfully demonstrated, by working with companies and organizations like yours, that by having teams participate in our fun, unique, highly interactive workshops that utilize the very techniques used by successful actors, improvisers, and comics, that teams become more highly adept at interacting effectively… not only among themselves but with prospects & clients, in presentations, and in all “real life” business and organizational situations.

Business and organizational leaders and teams need to adjust quickly to new circumstances. Agility is critical. No organization should ever allow themselves to become stagnant.

In many situations even when you prepare well, you need to be ready to handle all of the “unscripted” events that will inevitably come up during meetings, employee interactions, and team sessions. Learn to be a good listener and be ready to respond effectively to changing circumstances, unexpected turns and challenges. Whether you are the CEO, team leader, or a team member you know that you are always being counted on to be at your very best level!

Our  system is built on the principles of improvisation…Now don’t be alarmed or let the “I” word frighten you! This is NOT about you and your team having to become “brilliant” actors and comedians…we take a fun, relaxed approach to the work that will allow you and your team to easily adapt to, and utilize these techniques. These techniques will also heighten the skills team members already possess. This is about Your team, Your business, Your success!

We are not a one and done deal. Part of what makes us unique is that our techniques are guaranteed, when truly implemented after we leave you, to produce a lasting impact that is unsurpassed. Teams and team members discover new things about themselves and each other. So many team leaders have told us that they were really surprised and thrilled with the results.

One of our favorite quotes from a team member is “Wow, I really didn’t know what to expect. I did not want to participate because I didn’t think I could do it or that I would feel too silly. Well, I didn’t feel silly at all and I loved it. Now I’m thinking What Else Do I Think I Can’t Do? And I feel like I can do it!”

Play for Success is a unique, fun and proven team building experience for management teams, sales/marketing teams, and virtually any group seeking to tackle ongoing or future challenges and enhance their teamwork and performance.
