About this LEAP

Learn how the tools and techniques of Improv can immediately help you communicate and listen more effectively, work together as a team and build off the ideas of others. Experience the power of "Yes..And" and see how those simple words can create a more innovative you! The Improv Asylum team will show you how to "Train your Head to Think Fast on its Feet" by giving you skills that will help you prepare, lead and succeed!

Impactful, interactive and engaging sessions will focus on and demonstrate how to build off of others' ideas on the spot. We will examine the power of saying “Yes” versus the power of saying “No”, and we will ultimately introduce the concept of "Yes, and…" - that is, to listen and truly understand someone else and then build off of their idea.   We will explore listening skills and “reading” a group (whether it’s an individual or a full team) and we will demonstrate how to communicate more effectively. We will show how all of this relates to teamwork, communication skills and innovation – with the goal of providing concrete skills to reach better solutions and to achieve more effective results.
