What you'll learn in this communications course:

Full Course Name
Improv at Work: Comedy for Better Collaboration, Communication & Creation

Innovation comes from an intersection of art and commerce. It comes from creativity, which takes risk, saying yes to new ideas, and collaborating with those around you.

Kick off 2019 with a hands-on improv workshop that will take you through a series of fun exercises and discussions designed to hone your skills in creativity, communication and entrepreneurship. Led by facilitators from Chicago’s Team Us Comedy, the workshop will help you explore the principles of improvisation in a comfortable setting so you can keep laughing and saying yes to new ideas and experiences all year long.

All workshop attendees will receive a complimentary ticket to a Team Us Comedy show, featuring the best sketch, improv, and stand-up comedians from America’s premier clubs, from The Second City to the Laugh Factory.

Takeaways
  • Learn techniques to improve volume and caliber of ideas generated
  • Improve presentation skills and ability to answer questions on the spot
  • Discover how embracing failure can result in more innovative results
  • Identify ways to best support teammates with different skill sets
