TEAM BUILDING THAT WORKS

Companies that foster creativity–companies like Google, Nike, and even PepsiCo–routinely outperform their rivals in revenue, market share, and employee satisfaction because they have learned to embrace creativity as something directly linked to business results, rather than a secondary objective.

PlayRight Improv delivers team building and professional development using improvisation-based techniques to teach skills that are crucial to developing a true culture of innovation:

COMMUNICATION

Communicate at the atomic level by focusing on active listening and intuitive response.

  • Public Speaking
  • Building Rapport
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Leadership Training

CREATIVITY

Gain confidence in your creativity in a supportive environment where imagination roams freely.

  • Problem Solving
  • Idea Generation
  • Presentation Skills
  • Focus and Concentration

COLLABORATION

Don’t just work alongside one another. Learn the skills needed to truly work as a team.

  • Rapid Onboarding
  • Brainstorming
  • On-Demand Decision Making
  • Emotional Intelligence

BENEFITS

PlayRight’s unique approach offers several unique benefits you won’t find in traditional corporate skills training:

  • No PowerPoint slides or lengthy lectures – you won’t feel like you’re in school again
  • Focused, skill-specific exercises with examples and evidence
  • Post-exercise debrief sessions to analyze what was learned
  • Increased retention and understanding by utilizing a cycle of learn/do/reflect
  • Attendees participate as much as they are willing or able to

Best of all, there’s very little for you to prepare. All we need is a suitable venue of your choice that can accommodate all participants. We rarely require any audio/video equipment and we don’t eat much. Just point us in the direction of your team.

Let us personalize a program for your team’s specific needs, whether it’s a single presentation or a multi-day event.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Improv as a performance art is the act of creating dialogue, action, story, and characters on the fly without the use of a script. Basically, it’s performing live theater where everything is made up.

Our corporate improv program transforms the skills used in the theater to apply them to real world situations, also known as applied improv. Applied improv is the use of improvisational training for learning soft skills off-stage. When applied improv is used in the course of everyday business, companies thrive and grow.

Nope! You’ve probably heard the phrase, “it’s funny because it’s true”. Humor in an improv scene or exercise comes from people reacting in truthful, ways to outrageous and absurd situations. In corporate improv training, there’s no pressure to be funny–just to be real. What we do often produces laughter, but it’s a byproduct, not the end goal.
Yes! We love the art of improvisation and we wouldn’t be espousing its virtues if we didn’t truly believe it works. But even if you don’t believe us, here are some links from major publications about the power of corporate improv training in the workplace:

Why Top Companies and MBA Progams are Teaching Improv – Fast Company
Improv Training Is Making Management Throw Away the Script – Bloomberg

We offer full and half day workshops; full days are six hours and half days are three hours.

However, we can always modify our corporate improv courses to fit your needs. Whether it’s a 30 minute presentation on the usefulness of improv for businesses or a multi-day crash course on everything improv has to offer, we can accommodate whatever your business needs.

Our corporate improv workshops start by getting everyone on the same page with some icebreaker and warmup games. We quickly establish a safe, fun, and inviting environment where everyone in your company is willing to play.

Once we’ve got the team on board, we go into a series of exercises that teach the basic rules of improv, followed by focused games designed to teach specific skills, such as leadership or communication–all customized to your needs, of course.

Participants should expect to:

  • Stay on their feet for the majority of the workshop duration
  • Move around the performance space quickly but safely
  • Perform short games and exercises with their co-workers in a supportive, judgment-free environment
  • Participate only in those exercises they are comfortable with
  • Have fun!
Our rates are competitive with traditional corporate training, leadership courses, workforce engagement classes, company training programs, etc. While we believe our training offers more value than traditional corporate training, we also believe you’ll find our prices to be very reasonable.

Qualifying non-profits, volunteer-driven organizations, educational, and healthcare organizations may be eligible to receive our training at a discounted rate.

All our corporate improv workshops are customized for your needs. Pricing varies based on a number of factors, such as:

  • Number of participants
  • Length of the workshop
  • Workshop content/focus
  • Number of facilitators needed
