Team leader soon found out, while maybe there was excess spending in the past, their teams needed powerful bonding time away from the office. One company is committed to delivering high impact team building at a cost you can justify to share holders in 2018.

Psychological safety was recognized as the number one cause for a team’s success via a 4-year study by Google.  NY TIMES: What Google Learned From Its Quest to Build the Perfect Team

Improv is a fun way to help your team achieve Psychological Safety. Our #1 governing rule, YES AND…, is all about supporting everyone on the team. We help you enter the LEARNING ZONE, where performance drive is balanced with a supportive environment and everyone on the project feels they have value on the team. This requires the entire team and management to be on board.
