Improv for Business: Agility and Flexibility

The Maydays business improv course in London is an open group programme, allowing you to book a place as an individual, without needing to form a group in your own company.

Whilst there are lots of benefits from our custom improv for business programmes, sometimes, you might just want to stretch your improv muscles amongst strangers. You can skill-up, tinker with your comfort zone and have some space to laugh and let go without worrying about who’s looking.

It doesn’t much matter whether you’re the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, the MD of an SME, or a mild-mannered janitor. Once you get in the room, everyone is equal, and everyone is supportive. It also doesn’t matter whether you consider yourself to be an introvert or an extrovert.

Improv for Business: programme contents

The business improv course is universally accessible. You do not need any previous experience of improvisation, you don’t need acting skills, you don’t need to sing or be funny. If you have some of those skills already, you’re equally welcome, as long as you remember this is not about solo acts.

Instead, using our extensive experience of improvisation in corporate settings, we build unimaginable levels of trust, collaboration, teamwork and communication. That alone may inspire you to take the spirit of improv back to your respective organisation, but there’s more. You’ll also spend the afternoon free of judgement and with your inner critic firmly silenced. We create a space where you reconnect with your inner child, be spontaneous, think on the spot, make stuff up and laugh, a lot.

Each day is slightly different as we adapt to you and your fellow participants and each session has a different emphasis, meaning that you can get a lot from a one-off session, but equally you can book in advance to have a regular dose of improv throughout the year.

Every programme is CPD accredited, so the points can count towards your personal development or annual training plan.

Improv course outcomes

Each session we run will include exercises to develop:

–    Self-confidence and interpersonal skills

–    Ability to make strong decisions in real-time

–    Group collaboration and teamwork

–    Presentation and communication skills

–    Agility and free-thinking

–    Active listening skills and concentration

–    Positive attitudes to being out of your comfort zone

In addition, this particular session will have a focus on: Agility and Flexibility

– You can be safe in the knowledge of your own improv brilliance, but for your organisation to benefit when you’re back in the office, you need to be able to adapt in the moment to the unexpected, without it throwing you off course.

Agility is vital, whether you’re at the top of the tree, wrestling with how to flex your entire organisation around the latest Brexit-based offering, or you’re on the receiving end of management requests, and you need to juggle and accommodate your stakeholders.

By the end of the session, you’ll feel more focussed, more nimble on your feet, and ready to respond to whatever the world is about to throw at you.
