Improv Asylum is a professional improvisational and sketch comedy theater. The techniques we use in our training sessions to break down the conventional barriers in corporate thinking are the same ones we use on stage to create our critically-acclaimed comedy. By employing improvisational techniques, Improv Asylum helps individuals, teams and whole companies start to communicate and work together more effectively.
This isn't touchy-feely stuff. Trust us; we wouldn't be doing it if it were. Our trainers are very funny, our trainings are a lot of fun and we definitely take a learn-by-doing approach. Our trainers also have extensive experience in corporate, non-profit and even military environments. They relate all of the exercises we do to current trends in the corporate world and to those in your own company.
...You Will Be Building Better Ideas.
Improv Asylum works with you to identify your corporate goals and pinpoint existing problems requiring resolution before we conduct your training session. We then create a program that meets your needs and timing.
When Guinness needed to shift gears and redefine its brand in the United States, it started with its promotional teams. After one improv workshop, these teams, who had not worked together before, were performing cohesively out in the field. Representatives from regional sales and corporate headquarters alike saw the benefits almost immediately and even the skeptics became proponents of the process. Guinness even re-hired Improv Asylum to design a Boston promotion that was so successful it was expanded to New York and Connecticut.
