“Improvisation for the Facilitator”
Thursday, June 27, 2013
5:30 p.m. – 8:45 p.m.
Location: Crowne Plaza - Orlando
The rules and tools used by improvisational performers on stage allow them to create dynamic, original content in the moment in front of live audiences. While the thought of getting up on stage without a script terrifies most of us, the truth is we all live our lives "up on a stage without a script" every single day. So the rules and tools used by improvisational performers just might help all of us feel a little more comfortable being "in the moment" in our workplaces.
In this session, Anthony Giffen will lead participants through improvisational warm-ups, exercises, and simple games in a safe, embarrassment free environment (No, you won't be brought up on a stage!). Anthony will also illustrate how training and and development professionals can transfer improvisational theater skills to improve facilitation in classroom and meeting environments.
Anthony Giffen is a Learning and Development Consultant who has been leveraging his background in improvisational theater in a variety of human resources, theme park operations, consulting, and training roles for the past fifteen years. He has a loyal social media following and his leadership tumblr can be found at anthonygiffen.tumblr.com.
