This high-energy, interactive session demonstrates the tenets of improvisation and how they link to the real-world in an incredibly entertaining and thought-provoking way as you and your clients navigate the virtual world of coaching.

Delivered by Chicago-trained elite improv veteran, Duke Fuqua Adjunct Professor and author of Getting to “Yes And”: The Art of Business Improv) Bob Kulhan, you’ll discover how Business Improv® techniques strengthen a skill set directly related to team trust, communication, creativity & innovation, influence, resilience, morale, and adaptive problem solving in a virtual world.  The focus will be on applicability for both you and your clients in virtual arenas.

Bob’s approach addresses real-world business challenges, and his secret recipe combines the psychology behind decision-making with the very best aspects of our own brand of customized, high-energy, experiential learning, which drives measurable and sustainable ROI.

(For anyone whose Stay-At-Home Offices also contain children, roommates, pets and significant others, bring the family!  The more the merrier!)


In addition, participants will receive an exclusive code for Business Improv’s Improvisational Communication, a first-of-its-kind online course designed using research backed by science and more than 20 years of experience. This asynchronous course is regularly priced at $249 and by using the code YESAND you will be able to purchase for just $99 (a savings of $150!).

2)  “Yes, And…” verses “Yes, But…” (is there a difference?)


Improvisational Communication is designed to take you from constantly struggling with your blocks and barriers to communication, to a place where you can thrive as a confident—and competent—communicator. (It is as applicable virtually as it is on-site and in-person!)
