We provide scenarios for groups examining challenging topics, and we tailor our work to the client's specific requirements. First we meet with you to find out more about your work, and the issues that matter to you. Then we design a scenario to perform for your group, based on our conversation and your directions. We have worked with with Drexel Lebow School of Business and GlaxoSmithKline among others.
Imagine a group examining micro aggression. We create a scenario performed by our team which illustrates a problematic situation. Your team diagnosis it and gives us real-time feedback. Then we replay it using your notes and adjustments, and each time it gets a little better and more in line with the goal you are trying to achieve. Best of all, your group feels like there has been an original play written just for them, and performed by accomplished actors!
Our team is comprised of two extraordinary leader/facilitators, and a core of accomplished actor/improvisors. Our scenarios are created using "structured improvisation." With no script, we can make adjustments in front of your team during the workshop, based on their feedback.
