Productive Improvisation

Productive improvisation is our clever blend of two leading management approaches, delivered to you by two of the biggest players in our respective fields.

Think Productive, the masters of stress-busting productivity and innovative, practical Time Management Training have joined forces with us, the UK’s foremost improvisation training organisation, The Maydays.  Together, our experts have over 18 years experience in building resilience and agility for business leaders.

Our half-day* Productive Improvisation for Leaders Programme will take you on a transformational journey.  (*We can make it longer and deeper if you need us to!)

What you’ll do and learn:

  • First, Think Productive will share with you the 9 Characteristics of the Productivity Ninja™, inspiring you with specific, practical changes and tactics to boost your resilience and agility, your personal productivity and your well-being.
  • Then, we, The Maydays will take you to the next level. We will teach you how to improvise. That’s right, it’s a skill. It’s a thing you can get good at.

Leaders need to inspire confidence in those around them.  This requires that you have confidence in yourself.  We have moved away from traditional symbols of confidence – power suits and status symbols, and now have to draw on our own genuine resources to embody leadership.  Confidence is earned through experience, and sometimes this experience can be hard to come by.  Improvisation gives you the playground in which you can find out about yourself, how you respond in different situations and how you rely on other people when you need to.  It allows you to practise listening, being agile and staying in the moment when everything around you is changing.  It allows you to fail, celebrate your failure and fail again without fear of judgement.  Improvisation is an incredibly powerful tool that can actually increase your self-confidence and, as a result, the confidence that others will have in you.

Combine productivity with improvisation and you’re in a position to make strong decisions with utter agility.  Thinking productively in the moment.  Being a leader who truly encourages collaboration and an innovative environment open to all ideas, with no egos or fear of failure.

And that’s not even the best bit. The best bit is that you’ll spend most of the day laughing.  Laughing in the face of uncertainty.
