Improv for Team Building
All of our TeamProv workshops contain multiple elements of team building – and they go way beyond “trust exercises”. Trust doesn’t happen just because you catch someone falling backward. We give you the building blocks that create trust.
Team Building Through Improvisation
Improv may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about the workplace and skills associated with being a well-rounded and productive employee, but surprisingly, many of the skills that you take away from an Improv corporate team building workshop can be directly correlated with having a productive work environment and meaningful relationships with colleagues.
The Improv for Team Building workshop for employees will teach you 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, and living in the moment. These are the essential, yet often overlooked or discarded, communication and listening skills that will consistently improve the quality of your work, home, and social relationships.
Improv is proven to bring teams closer together because it requires:
- Communication (verbal & non-verbal)
- Presentation skills
- Risk-taking and change
- Stress management
- Customer service
Participants experience and learn new things, participate fully, and share a tremendous amount of laughter. TeamBonding’s TeamProv team-building workshop for employees has delivered successful training in every known industry, from network execs to nuns, from lawyers to lumberjacks to high-tech engineers. We offer vital information in a format that’s thoroughly entertaining and makes the discussion of key concepts both more resonant and memorable for your people. And that’s the goal – give them a great experience that will bond them socially and empower them in their work capacity.
We never forget the fun!
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.
- Enhanced customer service
- Improved presentation skills
- Response to change
- Positive leadership
- Sharper focus
- Clearer communication
- Reduced risk-avoidance
- Increased empathy
Team Prov was great. Our Lead did a nice job of creating a fun and safe environment. We had a couple of ‘breakthroughs.’ The feedback from individuals was consistently good
I personally thought the program was excellent. Every individual who attended the session was included in all of the activities, we laughed, we worked together and we bonded. This was time well spent.
The employees thought that his interactive approach was excellent as was the material itself! I even has someone tell me that he was one of the best presenters that we’ve ever had!
"It was a pleasure to work with all of you!!!! Thank You, Dustin and Shannon, for overseeing all the arrangements, and working with us to make it happen. Matt, you and your team were outstanding! I received very positive feedback about the Improv and how it was."
"A tremendous thank you for joining us at YBM this year and hosting two activities for us. You were amazing, particularly with the way you so thoughtfully transitioned the room from Katie’s story to the why behind the bear build on Monday morning. You struck the perfect balance and I can’t tell you how many people stopped us to tell us how much they appreciated being able to participate in that activity. I hope that we will have opportunities to work with you and TeamBonding again!"
"The entire event was fantastic! Exactly as I remember from before. Kirk was just awesome and everyone really liked him. Thank you so much. We definitely had a fun time and learned a lot. We will be in touch as I’d love to see more of these things incorporated into our orientation program for incoming students."
