Breaking Through Negativity:

Using Improvisation Techniques for "In-the-Moment" Collaboration

with Sheree Galpert

Wednesday, July 15th, 2020

VIRTUAL - Link in Registration Email

6:30pm – 8:30pm

It’s a familiar scenario: you’re in the virtual room with a group, and you keep running into resistance. Your session is going nowhere fast. Surely there must be a way to break through the logjam of negativity and disinterest- to get things moving faster and better- to capture the attention and enthusiasm of the group- to build their commitment to the process and the goals- to capitalize on their knowledge and brainpower.

And there is!

In Breaking through Negativity: Resources for “In-the-Moment” Collaboration, you’ll discover how improvisation can help you unlock the potential that is in every group to work more collaboratively, more creatively, and more effectively. You’ll learn some simple-yet-powerful techniques for mobilizing a group, and explore ways improvisation can improve your work and how you approach it. Come-play-learn!

We recommend you to turn your video on for this session. It’s improv - we believe it’s best experienced when we can see each other perform.
