So in all of our programs, we put our participants onstage! They do acting exercises, try out different characters, and experiment with different choices in emotion, body language, what to say, and how to say it. IMPROVISATION Improvisation involves a set of creative rules for how to connect, build and interact with others. When leaders learn how to improvise in everyday life, they become more relationship-oriented, and grow as listeners, collaborators and conversationalists.

Our business simulations and roleplays help leaders simultaneously develop new and more effective ways of interacting, and learn that they can keep performing and directing their scenes (conversations, relationships) at work and everywhere. 6 7
