Event description

Description

Tension in teams escalates under pressure, like when there’s a tough deadline or money becomes tight.

In normal times, teams want to stick together, to talk and exchange information, and everyone can manage some pressure, it’s part of the job.

When we get thrown a curveball, or the pressure is too high, though, we get stressed – and that’s when problems happen: it becomes easy to be protective and focused on our personal gain, we want to be safe.

When this happens, and our focus shifts from the team and the goal to our own concernt, communication and exchange of information dies, and - because of the pressure we are already under - mistakes happen.

Mistakes, under pressure, cost more. This workshop is focused precisely on helping you avoid these mistakes and costs.

In the workshop we will see not only how your team can work together, but how to make your teammates want to stick together and be there for each other under pressure.

We will explore how to make teams understand at a deeper level that taking care of each other, and not of only themselves, is what can bring them out of danger.

You will leave this workshops with a much deeper understanding of teamwork, and the ability to show you own team how a simple mental switch can make a world of a difference.

Methods

This workshop will use exercises derived from improvised theatre and filtered through management experience and a solid amount of scientific research.

Improvisers have about 10 seconds to work together and create a product (the show) that their clients (the audience) will like and are willing to pay for, otherwise the clients are lost forever. And everything needs to be done right in front of the customers.

This is their standard way of working, and improvisers have built their professional life on communicating well under pressure.

In the workshop we will explore how they do it via listening, accepting, building on ideas, making the other person look good. We will work only with active and interactive exercises: the idea is to experience what works under pressure and what doesn’t. There will be no lecturing, just learning by doing!

Last point: this is a very serious workshop, but by no means a formal one, so expect laugh and giggles, lots of them!
