Leadership and Team Building Workshops
Cherub Improv is the leading 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing improv comedy performances and workshops to underserved communities: over 1,500 events since 2007! Our customized improv workshops are perfect vehicles to strengthen corporate, non-profit, legal, and entrepreneurial teams who work together on a regular basis.
What Can Participants Expect?
Under the guidance of experienced workshop leaders, attendees will participate in a variety of carefully chosen verbal and physical improv exercises, games, and scenes designed to teach the fundamental skills of improv – skills that have widespread application well beyond “performing”:
· Improved listening skills.
· Positive energy through saying “YES” as opposed to “NO”
(so as not to dampen motivation to suggest ideas).
· Teamwork through building trust.
· Improved self-confidence and public speaking skills.
· Acceptance and support of colleagues.
· Creativity leading to breakthrough.
· Thinking on one’s feet.
· Improved spontaneity.
“Wharton Club of New York alumni had the privilege to build leadership skills with a Cherub Improv workshop. Wanting to do improv on the spur is one thing but having the toolkit and knowledge that co-founder Jonathan Evan Goldberg offered is quite another. Kudos to all the Cherubs for an evening of laughter and learning.”
