TEAMProv

Team Building with the Power of 'Yes, and.'


We get it because we live it — we do it better because we listen, learn, innovate and execute like no other. Improvisation is not “winging it”. It’s a highly-refined system of observing, connecting and responding. With TeamProv, we can design a program that fits your needs and goals

Improv performers and trainers use improvisation skills onstage to make people laugh.  Teambonding facilitators specialize in corporate communication skills training and teaching people HOW to improvise.  Improv Team Building teaches the vital soft business skills that they don’t teach in an MBA program…yet should: focus, trust, proactive listening, making each other look good, being present, living in the moment.  We teach the essential, yet often overlooked or discarded, communication and listening skills that will consistently improve the quality of your work, home and social relationships. 

Your needs + our skills = Your Goals Met

Whether your responsibilities are executive, administrative, or service, we offer effective, immediate solutions for social challenges common to ANY workplace by exploring the improviser’s toolbox.  Feel free to choose a single topic or mix and match. We often create hybrid team building programs based upon the client’s immediate needs.

Our interactive TEAMProv workshops can focus on any or many of these tenets:

Teamwork with TEAMprov  

We are all members of many teams: work, family, sports, friends. And it’s no coincidence that we should pull from the same box of communication tools to succeed on each of those teams. This corporate training session explores your social skills toolbox and its uses for building the strongest teams possible. Who knew you could use improv for business?

•     Empower participants to be a force on ANY team •     Acknowledge discomfort •     Dissolve negativity in the workplace •     Dismantle obstacles COMMUNICATION

This corporate training session explores the intricacies of working without a script and how to communicate effectively with your teammates, verbally and non-verbally. We teach how to be clear when giving information and filter through the onslaught of information from those around us. ComedySportz specializes in making hysteria hysterical.

•     Work without a script •     Strengthen “verbal” and “non-verbal” tools •     Utilize status for resource rather than intimidation •     Articulate your intentions (what’s obvious to you is not always obvious to them) •     “The 3 Ts” – Tolerance, Tact, Trust Your Gut PRESENTATION SKILLS

“If ALL the world is a stage…why am I holding the mic?” Whether it’s a presentation to clients, a town council meeting or an impromptu toast at a dinner party, at some point we are all called upon to speak before a group. This corporate training session teaches you to upstage your fear by creating an awareness of self, others and environment. Confidence is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

•     Upstage your fear •     Make it look easy (improv requires rehearsal, too) •     Navigate IN the moment (prevent yourself from getting lost in your thoughts) •     Be prepared for tech/AV failure •     “Gesture, not jester” – amplify without over exaggerating RISK TAKING and CHANGE

This corporate training session revitalizes your team with tools and the inspiration to view the world playfully. Finding creative goals and solutions are the name of the game in any industry. And everybody plays!As the chaos of the world whirls around us, it is very easy to get comfortable right where we’re sitting…on our potential. The risk is that we will become bored with the world, or it will become bored with us–neither of which is good for business.

•     You have no choice as to whether or not you will create, only what you will create •     Sometimes you just have to go •     Don’t panic–the minute you take a step, conditions WILL change •     Be present and exist in the moment •     Celebrate failure to avoid failing STRESS MANAGEMENT

Stress: the world’s most abundant resource.

No matter where you turn or what you do, stress is always an option. There’s never enough time, you can’t get there from here, your computer’s slow, traffic’s jammed, and somebody ate the last Krispy Kreme! We all know what it feels like to have our optimism and enthusiasm ground to a powder in the daily grind.This corporate training session teaches you to keep a playful attitude in the wake of the not-so-playful stressors. Improv is about never losing sight of your choices.

•     Channel your energy •     Tackle FEAR of embarrassment and failure •     Resolve conflicting agendas in the workplace (“I like my job, but I don’t like you”) •     Keep it about what it’s really about •     The only difference between a weapon and a tool is intention; choose wisely CUSTOMER SERVICE

The customer is always right, even when…they’re not. This corporate training session teaches you how to harvest new nerves when a customer is on your last one!Creating a great customer experience is vital to new and repeat business. The better your team is, the more your customers will tell the world to do business with you.

•    Determine what your “audience” wants •    Keep a level head, despite what/how/why they want it •    Accept offers and make it happen •    Pick up where other teammates left off   ebay pic   ciscoappleGE

An open space from the size of a meeting room to the size of a ballroom is needed, depending on the number of participants. Chairs are needed in a U-shape around the perimeter of the room, one chair per participant with a few extras. The center of the room should be empty so we can freely move around.

“We had a tremendous day with Drew and Derek on Friday.  The group enjoyed the experience but moreover, they found a lot of value in the topics the exercises addressed.  The efficiency and professionalism exceeded my expectations for what could be accomplished in such limited time. “

“Everything came together beautifully and we had a great meeting – not in small parts due to a very successful Sunday improv session and Matt’s masterful facilitation.”
