Would you rather poke your own eye out with a ball point pen than do another trust fall?
Well, you've come to the right place. Not only do we not have ball point pens, but we also know a thing or two about team building. The Dad’s Garage Ensemble has been performing professional award-winning improv together for over 15 years, and we've learned to work together like a well-oiled machine in that time. A lot of people think that improv is about being funny, but at its core - it's all about working together as a team. In our own workshops, we focus on skills like: listening, thinking quickly, and building on our teammate's ideas - so that when showtime comes and we're making things up in front of a full house - we're able to create a cohesive and competent story quickly without second guessing ourselves or others.
We can help your team work better together as well. Our workshops are a great way to break the ice, improve team cohesiveness, and create trust in your team and staff. Let Dad’s Garage help your company become a more creative, positive and productive work place!
Our workshops will help you approach old ideas in new ways. Make a change to:
• Company Meetings
• Strategy Sessions
• Brain Storming Sessions
• Team Building Events
Our workshops can benefit your team in many ways. We can help:
• Reduce fear of and resistance to change
• Increase collaboration and sharing of ideas
• Build trust and strengthen relationships
• Improve communication and interpersonal skills
We offer several types of workshops that fit the needs of any company:
Effective communication and teamwork is key to success in improv, and the same is true in the business world! Our Team Building workshop uses improv games & exercises to get your team thinking about how they communicate and interact with each other. A great way to get employees out of their comfort zone, this workshop will help your group build trust between one another and unify them as a team.
Speaking in front of an audience is most people’s number one fear! This workshop will teach your employees confidence, the ability to think on their feet, and the ability to handle unexpected changes.
Creativity and Collaboration
Creativity and Collaboration focuses on active listening, sharing the spotlight and accepting and building on other team members' ideas. Learn that any idea is worth looking at and exploring; it may lead you to another idea that is the answer.
