Frequently Asked Questions
Why improv? Is this a comedy class?
As an art form, improvisation is rooted in communication, collaboration, team-work, trust, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. I define Business Improv as the critical moment when strategy meets execution. We exclusively teach improv as a set of tools and techniques for personal and professional growth. We don’t just simplify your needs to make them fit into what’s available from comedic improv. Instead, we take the tenets of improv and elevate them to the sophisticated and intelligent needs that our clients demand.
Isn't improv just making stuff up when you don't know what to do?
This question is actually covered in the sample video above. And, if you think about real teams that improvise well (First Responders, Special Forces Military, ER Doctors and Nurses, Professional Sports Teams, etc.) and think about why they are able to improvise when it matter most, what you find is surprising to a lot of people. Improvisation is not the lack of preparation; on the contrary, improv is the abundance of preparation. Improv is rooted in preparation, repetition, and consistency.
English is not my native language. Will Improvisational Communication still work for me?
The answer, in short, is absolutely. Regardless of industry, profession (corporate or entrepreneur), language, region and culture. We've had the privilege of working with over 100,000 people all over the world for more than 20 years and know for certain that the communication skills we teach supersede the barriers listed above. Though our course is taught in English, the tools are 100% translatable and we know this because of the thousands of participants we teach who are not native-English speakers. This online course is the culmination of those 20+ years of experience linking improv to business at the very highest level.
How long is Improvisational Communication? Is it manageable?
This course was designed with business professionals in mind. We strategically designed the modules to pack significant value without overwhelming in any way. In full, the total course is just under 4 hours. The delivery mode is in bite-size "snackable" videos that are mostly less than 5 minutes, with just a handful that are longer. And, because you have lifetime access, you can rewatch the videos as many times as you'd like.
How does enrollment work?
When you enroll in Improvisational Communication you will receive immediate access to the course.
Is this course a purchase I can write-off in my business or expense at my company?
First, make sure to check with your accountant (I am not an accountant, and am therefore not giving tax advice). What I do know is that people very often can get training reimbursed by their organizations or write off training as an expense. And, my team would be more than happy to provide a written letter of completion once you have officially finished the course (if it would be helpful for seeking reimbursement).
What if I don't like Improvisational Communication?
We got your back. Your purchase is protected by a no-questions-asked, 100% money-back guarantee.
What else will I need to purchase after I sign up?
Absolutely nothing. We've provided everything you need.
I have other questions. How do I ask them?
You can send us an email at [email protected] and someone from our team will be in contact within 24 hours.
