Management and Leadership Training Programs Designed to Your Needs

For well more than two decades, Business Improv has been creating, designing, and developing custom curriculum. From original exercises and unique programs, to writing our how to book, to pioneering virtual experiential learning, to being the first in our field to create a self-paced, online program, we create programs that serve our clients’ wants and needs and reach the defined return on investment.
At our core, Business Improv is a behavior change and culture change organization. We excel at creating teams that are rooted in cohesion, chemistry, and trust and embrace uncertainty.
We will help you develop your team, whether that is in-person, fully virtual, or hybrid, so you are prepared for the future and ready for the next challenges.
Regardless of how our programs are delivered, we work on the foundation of ESP –
Experiential (fun, high-energy, engaging)
Science-based (behavioral psychology, organizational theory, behavioral economics)
People-based (relationship-based & human connection)
We deliver an on-going learning experience which includes:
  • In-Person and Virtual Sessions (live and synchronous),
  • Online (self-paced and asynchronous),
  • Coaching (one-on-on and small group),
  • Microlearnings & Quick Bumps,
  • Improv Comedy Shows, and
  • Pull-Through Support.
Business Improv’s programs are a dynamic combination of up-on-your-feet experiential learning exercises, case studies, high-energy discussions, and custom simulations to real-world challenges. Our programs are designed for your individual needs and your audience, which can include:
  • Board of Directors
  • C-Suite & Executive
  • Senior Executive
  • Directors
  • Mid-Level Manager
  • High Potential & Emerging Leaders
  • Onboarding and New Hire
  • Hourly Employees
  • Coaching & Mentoring

Here is a high-level tasting menu of some of our most sought-after programming. This Library of Offerings is not exhaustive, yet it is an excellent resource for you to explore before talking to one of our experts.
