Improv as a Tool for Culture Change: Building a Culture of Compassion and Wellbeing

October 12 | 10:00-11:00 AM

Learn strategies for shifting the "rules of engagement" in your organization to promote compassion and wellbeing.  This is a highly interactive presentation based on improvisational exercises. Each exercise simulates challenges and scenarios in real life and the debriefing illustrates how we can translate these skills to professional "scenes". This workshop is fun and entertaining while emphasizing very powerful skill sets.


  • Improve communication and listening skills to enhance effective communication and inter-disciplinary strategy. 
  • Practice exercises to improve mental flexibility and increase ability to think quickly in high stakes situations. 
  • Experience strategies for effectively working with team members to accomplish effective performance.
