Build Team Leadership Skills and Bold Decision Making with the Power of Improv
Building Team Leadership SkillsSome say that team leadership skills and bold decision making are born, not taught. We respectfully disagree.
Failure is an inevitable part of the work experience. Team Leads, Supervisors, Managers, Directors, Executives all screw up from time to time because they are human. How do your leaders choose to react to mistakes they make? A catastrophe..? An opportunity..? These two reactions make a huge difference! It is said that the person that wins the race is often not the fastest, but the one who, despite the pitfalls & the setbacks, simply never stops getting back up.
So what’s improv got to do with decision making and team leadership skills in business?
Terrific question! One of the greatest tools of a professional improviser, when they are improvising in front of an audience, is their willingness to make strong, bold and clear decisions in a stressful and almost completely uncontrolled environment. The improvisor walks on stage and there is no pre-defined story, no relationships no environment. They must spontaneously create all of this for the audience right then and there, and they must do it with confidence and conviction, otherwise, their audience will become board. Your business leaders are actually faced with this very challenge every day! They must make decisions, take action and communicate critical direction to their teams every single day, in an environment that is in constant change.
In this office team building workshop, we create an environment in which each person allows his or herself to examine and alter their reaction to failure through exercises that stretch the boundaries of their perceived self-limitations. Participants are gently challenged to change the way they think about mistakes and reexamine their very definition of failure. Improv is one of the best team leadership skill building activities and a makes for a fun team building event.
