Why do improv?
Life doesn’t come with a script. Sometimes, you have to improvise.
Improvisational comedy or “improv” is fast, fun and unpredictable. People end up exploring ideas they were not even thinking of just moments earlier. The results are spontaneous and and often hilarious. Yet there is a serious side to improv.
Improv teaches skills such as quick thinking, cooperation, active listening, creativity and leadership. When these skills are applied in business, great things can happen; it's no longer “business as usual.” Improv is taught at leading business schools and companies around the world.
Comic legend Bill Murray has described improv as the most important group work since they built the pyramids. Solutions come when people support each other and work together. The principles of improv are relevant for personal and professional development and can help people become better leaders, managers, colleagues and speakers.
Improv principles can be applied to the working world for personal development, team building, creativity and more. While you and your team have fun, you will also learn how to be help you and your team to be more open, constructive, confident and creative.

The energy and inspiration you gave us carried us well through the afternoon, and key learnings and takeaways from the workshop turned into important red threads in our discussions. ... I am convinced there are many others that would benefit from similar workshops.

Simply amazing and very useful.
Very interesting, highly fun, many insights into human behaviour.
It was a new, fun and constructive way to know each other better.
The improv session was a great learning experience and left me hungry for more! Could you send me the exercises that we learned during the day? I'd like to incorporate some of them into our next meetings for TEDxTrondheim. Thanks!
