improve it!'s 2018 Business Improv Public Workshops
Are you a business professional who would like to be fully present in the moment so there is no room for self-consciousness or shaky nerves? Are you looking for new ways to show leadership in your office or community? Are you looking to get to the next level in your profession but have trouble finding the confidence?
Most importantly, are you the kind of person who likes…FUN?!?
Then, say no more! Come join improve it! in our quarterly public workshop, and we’ll teach you the healing powers of improv for the workplace.
Our energetic and unique workshop will highlight the impact that improvisational techniques can have on your communication skills, and overall professional presentational presence! (Try saying that five times fast.)
Over the course of two hours, you will participate in an interactive lecture and series of improvisation-based exercises led by professional improvisers. By the end of the workshop we guarantee you will have learned and practiced how to:
- Be fully present in the moment
- Offer support and find common ground with internal and external customers
- Connect and engage in conversations by listening deeply and building on the other person’s ideas
The workshop will be led by improve it!’s founder, Erin Diehl, and three of improve it!’s professional improvisers --- all who have trained and performed at top theaters in Chicago and around the United States. The workshop will provide you with an intimate, and hands-on experience to show you exactly what we do.

About Catalyst Ranch: Catalyst Ranch was the first venue in Chicago to realize that the results of any offsite meeting or event can be enhanced if participants are placed in the right environment. We refused to believe that only Creatives should be allowed to work in non-businesslike, fun, eclectic spaces. Everyone can be more productive if the conditions are optimized, which is why we customize each and every meeting that we host. By stimulating all the senses, Catalyst Ranch helps break down barriers and create positive disruption of thought and new ideas. We offer all-inclusive pricing and provide all the technology and meeting supplies you require. Partner with our team for exceptional customer service and the perfect meeting experience.
Attire: Although this is a professional event, comfortable professional clothing is encouraged as this will be an interactive workshop.
