Why/How do businesses use Impro?

Impro workshops are finding their way more and more onto the busines agenda.

There are a number of reasons why this is the case. The main one is that impro is all about teamwork. Creating a story from thin air involving the input of several minds is a tricky business and can only be achieved if all the participants operate together harmoniously.

The "performers" need to able to listen and communicate clearly and effectively to make the games scenes or stories work.

Participants not only discover how creative and spontaneous they can be but often report an improvement in confidence, assertiveness and especially "stagecraft" (and to the average business that means things like public speaking and communication skills).

And on top of this impro is entertaining and tremendous fun. So all the learning takes place with smile on the face. In the hands of skilled tutors even the shyest of people can find a place to blossom.
