improvise into the unknown
techniques for adapting to uncertain times with more ease & Joy
Improvisers are trained to eat the unknown for breakfast.
As a professional improviser, Pam Victor's job is to jump into the unknown and instantly create content out of thin air with her colleagues. And now, Pam would like to share easy-to-learn techniques to support you in improvising opportunities in this unexpected new reality. Because that's what improv is all about:
The acceptance of the reality of the moment and the agreement
to move forward together with positivity.
In this insightful interactive presentation, Pam uses wise-cracking stories and the wisdom of improv tenets to provide immediately-applicable, game-changing tools to help you reframe challenges, redefine failure, reduce anxiety, and quiet the internal voices of fear and self-judgment that may be getting in the way of your progress and forward momentum in these uncertain times. Using the wonders of Zoom, Pam leads the team through solo and group interactive exercises to deepen and individualize learning through laughter. This professional development presentation is designed to support the resilience, flexibility, and creativity of members of work and leadership teams, entrepreneurs, and anyone whose business has been shaken up by the current health situation.
Ask yourself this: Given the reality of this moment, could you use more ease and joy?

Don’t tell anyone this secret: In this interactive presentation, Pam Victor shares the exclusive collaboration superpowers that allow improvisers to create comedy out of thin air, so you can use these trade secrets for building stronger collaborative, team-focused progress at work. This presentation provides hands-on experience with why we overuse “no” to restrict progress, and how we can get to “yes” in order to move forward together as a happy team. Through humorous stories, small-group discussions, and impactful interactive exercises, you gain valuable tools for how to progress at work with more positivity and true cooperation in order to increase staff empowerment, conflict-resolution skills, and productive team spirit. Let’s learn how improv superpowers can improve brainstorming sessions, getting to win-win, and promoting creative problem solving … and we get to do it all through laughter!
