improvEQ helps leaders and teams effectively adapt to the daily challenge of interpersonal communication in business

Develop the soft skills your team needs to succeed

In the modern workplace almost every factor of success relies on how you interact with other people. More than ever, soft skills — how we interact effectively and harmoniously with others — are a daily necessity at work. These "people-skills" ensure a productive, collaborative, empathetic, and healthy work environment that is vital to retaining great employees and standing out among competitors in the eyes of your clientele. 

 

ImprovEQ helps develop soft skills by applying the principles of improvisational performance. Through engaging workshops, training sessions and presentations we help individuals and teams adapt to the daily challenge of unscripted interpersonal communication. Our approach makes the process safe, entertaining and eye-opening, providing accessible connections between work and life situations for your team no matter their role or personality type.

How improv applies offstage

Improv is a theatrical art-form where the characters, scenes, and dialogue are made up on the spot without pre-planning. Good improvisation is achieved by being in the moment, conquering fears and self-doubt, and working collaboratively in an accepting and supportive team environment.

 

While these skills are useful in a theater setting they are also applicable in our professional lives and pivotal in developing better leaders, highly functioning teams, and a workplace where creativity and innovation thrive.

Businesses benefit from improvisation principles. Many top-tier business schools currently teach improv classes including Duke, MIT, UCLA, and Stanford.
