Transform the Conversation Culture of Your Workplace with Erica Marx, Tuesday June 7th 3:00-4:30pm
Communication tools for small businesses from improv theater.
What if communicating ~ even about the hard stuff ~ could be fun? What if conflict wasn't scary? What if everyone on your team was playing full out, contributing their energy & ideas freely and with full commitment?
Surprisingly, this experience if often much more accessible than people realize, and can be created by applying a few key insights and communication techniques drawn from improv theater.
In this high-energy workshop you'll learn practical skills that immediately change the trajectory of a conversation.
You will leave the workshop with new tools to:
* quickly build connection and trust
* speak so you will be understood
* access new ideas and solutions
* reconnect with creativity and fun
With these new skills, you will know how to connect naturally with your customers and your employees, and create the foundation for productive, responsive, and profitable businesses.
This workshop is based on the results from Google's Project Aristotle, a 2-year internal research project aimed to discover what motivates their most effective teams.
Note: This workshop will draw upon games and insights adapted from improv theater. However you do not have to be funny, have theater experience, or be at all interested in either of these to fully participate!
