Coaching and Improv: An Evening with Maxine Shapiro
Using Improv techniques to get more out of you and your clients.
Join us for an evening of fun and engagement while we explore the application of improvisation with Maxine Shapiro! Maxine brings us a tailor-made, collaborative presentation with exercises that will fire up our coaching imaginations! She will teach us how to bring out the best in someone while unleashing creativity, generosity, wisdom, agility, boldness and acceptance far beyond anything the coach or client dreamed possible. These improv exercises will allow us to take more risks while staying true to such core competencies as:
- Trusting our instincts
- Staying present
- Thinking bigger than we thought we could
- Creating new ways of approaching a challenge
- Making the other person look good
She will take us through three to four exercises that will comfortably take everyone out of their comfort zone, challenging each of us to use unfettered, on-the-spot thinking – without judgment. Exercise for exercise sake, is nothing without discussing the obvious and not-so-obvious connection to our work. Therefore, after each engagement we will debrief the learnings.
At the very least, this will be an evening of fun, engagement and camaraderie. At the most, everyone will leave with their thinking on a higher plane about themselves and the future of their practice.
