Our Secret Formula
We primarily use improvisation and other experiential techniques with all of our work. These methods aren't magic, and there really is no secret formula. Our work is about trying something different, stretching yourself, and taking a few risks. Anyone can do it. But it isn't "off the shelf" learning. When we work with a client, we design interactive workshops, coaching, facilitation, training, keynote speeches, long-term interventions, and cultural change initiatives to meet their specific brief.
We work with groups numbering from two to two thousand. Typically all of these experiences utilize interactive, on-your-feet methods where participants learn and generate breakthough ideas through doing, and through playing.
- How it starts
Beginnings matter, and all of our work usually begins with a great question. Here are a few of the questions we have received:
- How can you help our agency to meet our vision of being a 'creative community'?
- Our industry is changing dramatically. How do we change how we work together in order to survive?
- How can you help our leaders to be skilled in storytelling?
- How can we stop having the same conversation we have been having for two years and come up with some really new ideas?
- We say we are open, honest and connected. How can we start behaving more like these values, rather than just talking about them?
- How can we teach 400 people about collaboration and not bore them to tears with 55 PowerPoint slides?
- How it looks
All of our work is customized. It usually takes one of these forms:
Interactive, one-to-three day training and immersions for smaller groups. Recent Workshop clients include: P&G, Wieden + Kennedy, Laika, Intel, The BBC
Part performance, part lecture, part interactive experience for large audiences. Recent Keynote clients include: Sub Zero/Wolf, Philips, Burgerville, GE
We partner with clients for long-term initiatives, training, and learning programs. Recent Lab Work clients include: Nike Learning & Development, Disney, The Portland Trail Blazers
These are mechanisms for keeping learning alive: books, journals, wearables, stickers, "Notice More" & "Do More Of What You Care About" kits.
