LIVE EVENT – Improvisation for coaching


Like all humans, we coaches are creatures of habit, subject to our own filters,
learning, egos, and blind spots. How can coaching professionals—from the newest to
the most seasoned—step out of our default patterns and comfort zones to truly dance
in the moment? In this highly experiential workshop, coaches will learn the basic
rules and skills of improvisation, developing core competencies in an entirely new
way. By letting go of control and engaging in true collaboration, coaches will
experience greater freedom, creativity, listening, presence, power, and willingness to
take risks and go deeper into the unknown. Coaches will walk away with enhanced
skills, a greater awareness of their personal blind spots and growth opportunities, and
a toolkit of exercises to use for their own continued development and with clients.

Learning Objectives:
• Increase Coaching Presence and Active Listening competencies and
• Discover personal “blind spots” or growth opportunities within those
• Practice with and retain a toolkit that can be used for continued development
and for direct use with clients

• Teaching of core improvisation rules and concepts and their alignment with
• A series of facilitated full-participation skill-building and discovery-catalyzing
improvisational exercises and games
• Discussion to unpack the learning and application of each exercise
