Change management training is more critical now than ever, simply because the world is changing faster than ever. Sadly people often get “stuck in the past,” resisting and complaining about change instead of embracing it and moving forward.
The problem is that change is inevitable. Individuals and organizations who fight, resist, and try to avoid it are doomed to fall into irrelevance.
This interactive change management training program will show your people how to stop fearing and hating change and how to use the power of improv comedy to improvise, adapt, and innovate – no matter what happens!

- Think quickly and adapt to change and the unexpected.

Change Management Training Workshop Outline
(Note: this is a sample only. Training workshops will be customized based on needs and objectives):
Overview – An overview of why change management training critical in today’s world and how the tools and principles of improv comedy can help participants manage, benefit from, and initiate change.
Building the “Creative Foundation” – One of the primary reasons change causes so many problems is that people often get stuck in “binary thinking” and struggle to align their old plans and goals with new conditions. In this segment, participants discover how to tap into and develop their creative power, and also learn how these skills can help be more flexible in the face of change.
Adopting the Improviser’s Mindset – All the change management techniques in the world are useless if the implementer has the wrong mindset. Participants will learn they key mindsets that open up flexibility and adaptability.
Responding with “Yes, And” – In any moment, you can respond with “yes, but,” or “yes, and.” “Yes, but,” is the default response for most. It is also the response of whining, complaining, and resisting change. Attendees will learn how a simple two-word shift can completely shift their approach to change.
Giving and Taking Control – In a changing world, the least effective approach is to try to control everything going on around you. In this training, participants will practice the power of letting go of some control to both other people and to their own changing situation.
Finding Opportunity in Change – While many view change in a negative light, some see change as an opportunity for success. These are the people who get ahead and rise to the top. Attendees will learn simple techniques to seek and find opportunities in change, along with ideas on how to act on those opportunities.
Getting Ahead of the Curve – The best way to manage change is to be the one leading it. In this segment participants will explore how to think of and initiate change with their teams, organizations, and in their own lives.
