IMPROV FOR BUSINESS
You’ve probably read or heard about all the money that is lost by companies that don’t use or value their “human” capital. Every year, US companies lose up to:
A UNIQUE BACKGROUND OF IMPROV AND BUSINESS
‘If it weren’t for my background in improv comedy, I wouldn’t be as good of a boss’.
While Max has a strong background in improv comedy (Max studied and worked with Improv Olympic West for years and performed nearly 100 shows with his comedy team) he also has an extensive background in business. For the last 10 years, he has been running two successful companies employing as many as 50 people at a time. His unique approach and experience allow him to recognize many of the issues that all executives and managers can have with their staff and address them in a way that has been proven effective dozens of times.
Promoting a Culture of ‘Yes’
Turning Your Team into an Ensemble
Businesses have been using comedy improv techniques for decades. Most of us are familiar with The Second City who first showed how companies can use improvisation exercises to increase employee happiness and therefore productivity.
In a single 3 hour session, Max will use his unique skillset of improv and business to help your team with:
- Collaboration and Communication
- Overcoming Adversity
- Encourage Spontaneity & Idea Building
and HAVE FUN doing it.
Impress Your Colleagues
We all have a colleague at work who seems to be born with charm and a silver-tongue. But of course, they aren’t born that way, they LEARNED to behave and talk that way. Like anything, it’s a skill. And like any skill you can learn it.
Getting in front of a crowd, whether it’s your companies board members, an interviewer you’d like to impress, or an audience at a play, is not as hard as you think. Max will help you use concentration, breathing, and preparation techniques that will give you the power to wow anyone with your speech and affability.
If you have ever had a good idea ignored by a colleague, an interviewer pass you over, or a boss that doesn’t see you, the benefits of these techniques will be invaluable.
In just three 1-hour sessions Max will use his skills and techniques in improv and as a successful business owner who has interviewed thousands of people, to help you feel like a new person with the confidence and likeability to move through life and up the ladder the way you deserve.
Even speech impediments can be shaped and used to be an asset to you, rather than feeling like a liability.
