How will the classes be conducted?
In a group setting, an experienced instructor will guide you through a series of exercises in a supportive and safe environment. Our intention is to create a low- stress atmosphere for everyone to learn and grow without judgement. This is essential when learning improv and what the ICC is acknowledged for during their sessions.
What will be the focus of each class?
Networking Techniques – In the corporate world, having a dynamic and supportive network can be the key to success. Along with a group of new students, learn networking exercises, how to connect positively with new people, improve listening and retention skills, practice conversation game changers, and relationship building.
Storytelling – As long as there have been humans, there have been stories. It’s how we have communicated news and learned from one another’s experiences. This is where you will learn how to verbally create a visual narrative so you can keep your audience engaged while you explain a new concept or product. Storytelling will help others relate to you, which that can be a very powerful business tool. Need to make the subject of your next presentation interesting? Try telling a good story!
Presentation Skills – As a business professional, you understand the value an impactful presentation has on your audience. When expressing a new idea or process, whether to one person or to a room full of people, it is important to make your message stick. Improv will help you become a stronger and more effective communicator. You will learn how to add emotion to your speech, control your body language, think on the spot, and adapt to your audience. With these techniques, you will overcome the fear of failure and communicate your next presentation with more confidence.
Group Work and Team Dynamics – Being a part of a strong team with a positive group dynamic is invaluable. When dynamics are positive, the group functions well and gains more success when working towards a specific goal or purpose. Using improvisational exercises with your classmates, you will be encouraged to break down barriers, problem solve, communicate, listen, accept, and
explore. Learn the tools you can use to influence the direction of a team’s behaviour or performance by staying positive and gaining trust.
