Using Humor to Build Trust And Connection In Your Work Culture (Part 1)
May 30, 2022 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm| $40 – $45
Impactful team building: a team that laughs together, grows together!
(Part 1, May 30th 2:30pm to 4pm. Part 2, June 9th 2:30pm to 4pm. Separate registration through Eventbrite is required for each workshop but it is not a requirement that you take part 1 before registering for part 2.)
~ How does it feel to hear a “Yes, and…” versus a “Yeah, but…” ?
~ How does passing a clap around a circle help you build self and group-awareness?
During these workshops you will experience both laughter and connection that stays with you beyond the 90 minutes. Using the principles of improv, Brett will choose light-hearted exercises that provide opportunities for you to get to know, care and trust the people in the group through storytelling, active listening, collaboration and spontaneity. Throughout the workshops, there will be times for reflection and discussion amongst the group.
Parts 1 and 2 will naturally build on each other, however you can choose to attend just one workshop or both! These are not performance based workshops, and you don’t have to ‘be funny’… any comedic moments that do happen will be 100% spontaneous!
During these participatory workshops, you will:
• Feel the impact of the phrase “Yes, and” vs “Yeah, but”
• Experience the power of storytelling
• Take risks in a fun and safe environment
• Gain a deeper connection with a new group, in a short amount of time
• Walk away with a handout of the games played
• … and enjoy some deep belly laughs!
