AmpEd: Applied Improvisation Boot Camp

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, influence, 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 improve the following skills – communication, collaboration, relationship building, negotiating, influencing, critical thinking, leadership. And your ability to gain buy-in, earn trust, and to make high velocity, quality decisions. The Improv Advantage will help you and your team go the extra mile and separate from the rest!

In his book, To Sell is Human, Daniel Pink highlights improvisation as a critical skill for everyone. With Kupe’s improv, IT and business background, he will be able to help you directly apply these skills on the job.Improv to Improve.
