AGREEMENT, CREATIVITY, AND SUPPORT – the skills that make 1,000’s of students at our Training Center succeed as comedians each year can help your company succeed in the world of business. PHIT Corporate works with companies large and small teaching Applied Improvisation: using the tools and techniques of good improv to teach your team how to work together in new ways that are inclusive, fun, and increase productivity.
Our work with groups draws on PHIT’s experience teaching thousands of adults each year over the last decade at our Training Center, with customized modifications designed to convey how improv skills can be used by your team members to improve how they work together. A typical two-hour session has our facilitators engaging all participants with exercises from our adult comedy classes and leading discussions about how the skills being taught can be used in the everyday work situations. We aim to make our sessions high impact by involving everyone – no matter how timid or bosterious they may be – by mixing skills demonstrated in front of a crowd by our more enthusiastic participants with seated exercises done in pairs as our facilitators float between participants offering advice. With plenty of opportunity for discussion between the facilitators and participants as well, the learning for the day is presented visually, aurally, and experientally – catering to diffirent learning styles and maximizing retention of the concepts we present.
PHIT Corporate has three main areas of focus for clients who come to us knowing they want something fun, but not quite sure what goals they have for a session:
- Team Building & Trust.
- Listening & Communication.
- Creativity & Brainstorming.
None of these options exactly what you are looking for? Have a specific goal in mind that is not listed above? We have over a decade of experience researching, designing, training customized workshops based on our clients needs – we’ve helped everyone from universities seeking unique ways to teach incoming resident advisors how to handle conflict in dormitoies, to rapidly growing non-profits facing intergenerational differences in the workplace, to priests who wanted us teach them how to make their sermons funnier.
