Improv for Coaches – expand your range as a coach with applicable improv methods

In our coaching sessions we very often “dance in the moment” and we have to create from whatever our clients throw at us so we can bring out their magnificence. In improv our scene partner (and sometimes the audience too) throws suggestions at us so we together can create a story without a script, while we also aim to make our partner look brilliant.

In this online workshop, we’ll explore some of the basic rules and games of improv that we believe are also applicable to coaching. Certainly Improv has something to do with fun, but overall it's about connection and being in the moment here with your partner.

You don’t need to have any theatre experience to join this workshop all you need is the courage and joy to dance in the moment.

Speaker: Su Mee Tan (MA, CPCC, ACC) & Frank Jäger (PCC, CPCC)

Frank and Su Mee both certified as coaches with the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI) and met at a CTI Leadership course in London. Su Mee lives in Amsterdam and was working internationally as a change manager for many years. Frank is living in Düsseldorf and led the business theater company GANGART Theater*Event*Training for many years.

They believe the art of improvisation is a great tool for anyone to have, in coaching as well as in life, so a lot of the coaching and training they do includes what they learned from improvisation theatre.
