Improv to Improve: Your Team’s Performance with Lessons from Bad Art

Session Description: Honest communication, a collaborative mindset and a strong sense of common purpose…these are the critical characteristics that all high performing teams share. No mindful manager would disagree that these items must be included on every short list for project success. However, there is much divergence on how to cultivate a culture where group excellence will thrive. It may surprise you that the key to understanding teamwork can be traced to the unlikeliest of places…ART. Join me as we explore what it means when managers act as servant artists to help their teams create masterpieces.

Learning Objectives:

  • what bad artwork can teach us about good teamwork
  • how to cultivate a culture of synergy to improve their team’s performance
  • what it means to be a servant artist within the context of management
  • how to use the B.I.T. Round Robin Method to create a collaborative story with their team
