(Formerly operated as Intellact)
It is increasingly recognized that the principles of good improvisation are also the foundations of effective collaboration and innovation. Improv-based activities are being used and adapted to conduct successful training programs in a broad spectrum of corporate and personal development areas, including:
The intallact facilitators (formerly working under the intellact name) have been working and teaching in this medium for over 20 years, combining solid business experience, with impressive theatre training and performance credits. That rare and powerful combination has been recognized by the international Applied Improv Network, where we have been selected to deliver workshops every year since 2003, to consistent acclaim. That same high-calibre training is available to your team as well.
Why is Improv-based training so powerful?
There is no script for everyday-life, so in a sense, we are all improvising all the time. However good theatre improvisers go far beyond everyday-life - they create true magic, engaging us and working with a seemingly psychic synchronicity that is a joy to watch. Their secrets are rooted in practicing some basic improv principles:
Looking at that list, is it any wonder that the same principles are used to create powerful partnerships and teams? Improv is a skill but it is also an attitude, and both can be taught! And it's FUN!
How does intallact use improv?
Improv-based activities are just some of the many tools in our training arsenal. We can deliver programs that use improvisation from beginning to end; as a component of other topics (such as our Workplace Communication Program); or to interactively explore mainstream business models (such as our Dramatic Exploration of Situational Leadership program).
Most importantly, improv is more than just fun and games for us. We focus on the relevant learning and practical workplace applications.
