Applying Improv Comedy to Create Positive Company Culture

Improv is the practice of being human, helping us practice communication, empathy, and decision making, in a psychologically safe place for experimentation and learning.

During this session we’ll do improv games and exercises, popularized by theatres that have trained the world’s best improvisers and comedians, including Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Amy Poehler, and more, to learn how to apply improv comedy techniques to creating psychologically safe workplaces, empowering our team members, and enhancing employee well-being. This is an interactive session where there will be movement and participation from all participants, and, in addition to lots of learning, it will be a lot of fun!

Speaker: Mary Lemmer + Erica Marx
