It is more apparent now than ever that high performing teams are more successful than those that are not. Most of your work life is being part of a team. The traits of being an effective team member are often viewed as skills that people are born with. For some it may come easier than others, but everyone can learn and hone these skills. For me, these are skills I honed while training and performing as an improvisational comedian. 

To accomplish anything, you need the help of others and others need your help. Successful teams have members that are continually improving how they interact and communicate with each other. Collaboration, creativity, and results grow out of an environment that is positive and affirming. 

In this highly interactive and fun session, Kupe, an improvisational actor, focuses on key improvisation lessons that will help you be a more attentive and flexible team member. You will walk away with lessons to help you stay in the present, temporarily suspend judgment, keep conversations moving forward and listen generously. These skills are needed to build positive, trust based, results oriented teams. With Kupe's background he will be able to help you directly apply these skills to your job.
