ROI: Richard Oberbruner Improv facilitates Employee Engagement Training sessions (EET™) that enhance camaraderie, productivity and profitability at small to medium-size Millennial-based companies. Each Employee Engagement Training session is customized to fit the current and future needs of the company, and are scheduled on a monthly, quarterly or as-needed basis.
The sessions contain Serious Fun™ – the fun of participating in laugh-filled, spontaneous improv games combined with the seriousness of company objectives. This unique teambuilding approach enhances a company’s ability to adapt to the social-emotional changes in a tech-centric global economy.
Available workshops include:
Think Quickly On Your Feet: Do your people need a boost of enthusiasm? Think Quickly On Your Feet is the answer! “TQ” is an interactive workshop where everyone get’s out of their heads and into the spontaneous moments that present themselves. You will laugh. You will learn. You will feel the boost. And it’s your people doing the boosting!
CHānj: it’s everything you think and nothing you imagine: Everybody talks about change but what is it really? This workshop answers this question. Change is uncertain, challenging, frightening, thrilling yet doable. My improv techniques put workplace professionals on the edge of their own learning curve. Fun on the surface, CHānj is play with deeper meaning. Improv imaginatively, yet logically, walks management and staff through scenarios to determine the best direction for specific needs. Team members will be face-to-face with CHānj as it happens. They must react in the here-and-now. Improv is all about Ready Mode – ready for what you think might happen and what actually does.
It’s Not Me (Mostly Ego) It’s WE (Wonderfully Enlightenment)™: Is your office filled with Mostly Ego, a.k.a. “ME” people? Would you like it to be filled with more Work Enlightenment, a.k.a. “WE” people?This session will put you in active group situations that set corrosive egos aside and bring out everyone’s dormant brilliance. Experience trust like never before, communicate in unique ways, accept new ideas and build on them, and spontaneously express your thoughts without judgment. Improv will be your tantalizing teamwork tool. Experience for yourself the five elements of improvisation that can turn the four walls of your office into a productive three-ring circus that inspires the two halves of your one amazing brain.
Where Business and Creativity Collide™: In this workshop, creativity will be defined in two ways: In business and for yourself. You will determine your Creative Profile and how it fits into a business context. An entrepreneur component is included with the opportunity to create a basic business plan. Oh, and we taste test ice cream and create new flavors!
