Unlock Greatness
Presented by: Chris Nielson

Abstract: This program can address:

  • Leadership
  • Creativity
  • Innovation
  • Teamwork
  • Communication
  • Conflict Management
  • Presentation Skills

Chris kicks off his workshop by asking each participant to identify one of their current challenges (professional or personal), and he creates a 100% customized program based on the list. The group will establish an environment where attendees can safely play, improvise and experiment while building and learning skills critical to success. An increasing number of entrepreneurs and organizations, like American Express, Dupont and Ford, are recognizing how improv comedy and experiential learning can bring serious benefits to their business, including new ideas and fresh approaches. Improv skills can help businesspeople of all levels improve their teamwork, adaptability, creativity, and negotiation skills. It helps remove “analysis paralysis” and can help executives overcome the urge to critique and be right in order to unlock creativity.This program is designed for the growth-minded professional or person, who is willing to stretch outside his/her comfort zone to truly grow.
