Why improv?
 
From better communication skills to the ability to think on one's feet, using improv in business has proved to help both individuals and the companies that hire improv groups. Fostering innovation, confidence, team building, and creativity, bringing an improv group like WIT to your organization can rejuvenate any workplace.
 
It's not a powerpoint and it's not a webinar. It's a workshop that is alive and crackling with the potential of everyone's energy and focus. It's a truly interactive training experience that can strengthen and unify your team in powerful ways. Check out these articles and links about the impact improv can have - on teamwork, creativity, and leadership - when applied to the workplace.
