🕕 4.5 HOURS IN TOTAL

🏢 MAX. 3 SESSIONS

👥 6-20 PARTICIPANTS

📍IN PERSON OR VIA VIDEO

Participants will take part in over a dozen fun activities, each designed to enhance the  Human Intelligence of your participants. These activities target the typical human communication obstacles encountered by typical and atypical teams across the organisation. All together, we’ll identify and dismantle the root causes of poor teamwork and collaboration. This collaborative effort will steer teams towards a more efficient and productive work dynamic, enabling them to perform at their peak.

All while having fun.

WHAT REBOOTER GROUP CAN DO FOR YOU

What effect poor teamwork has

Ineffective teamwork, collaboration, and team dynamics present formidable challenges within organizations. This leads to inefficient decision-making and a lack of cohesive purpose, resulting in stalled projects and unachieved goals. While some individuals may initially possess ample motivation and drive, self-interest can gradually overshadow collective objectives, often going unnoticed until trust and motivation begin to wane. This erosion of trust and motivation ultimately leads to mediocre collaboration, teamwork, and performance.

How to fix this

Connected communication and trust are one of the antidotes to this. Not just focusing within the team, but between management and staff. The Human Intelligence programs by Rebooter Group use Applied Improvisation (AIM) methodologies to do this.

From it you see a marked improvement in teamwork and collaboration, as the brightened relationships help mold the individuals. Different AIM concepts like ‘listen/accept/build’, “yes, and…”, ‘postpone judgement’ and ‘making others look good’ nurture a supportive and cooperative team atmosphere. With management and staff taking part, a mutual understanding forms the bedrock of stronger interpersonal connections.

When teams focus on supporting processes (‘the adventure’) rather than obsessively judging outcomes, they are more effective in handling the uncertainties and volatilities of modern business life.

Rebooter Group creates an environment similar to successful improvisational theatre groups. This involves:

  • developing an experimental and intense collaborative teamwork culture,
  • providing real-time information access to all team members,
  • participants willing to be vulnerable and take risks,
  • drawing on past experiences and expertise, and
  • fostering trust and building group bonds.

This lays the groundwork for greater performance which leads to greater innovation, and helps boosts revenue and curtails expenses, and leads to a more successful organisation.

Medical improv is defined as “the adaptation of improvisational theatre principles and training techniques to improve communication, cognition, and teamwork in the field of medicine.” The goal is to enhance clinical skills and build knowledge related to the seven roles of a competent physician defined by Canada’s Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons.

For example, in improvisational theater, ‘Yes/And’ is seen as a core philosophy for building on previous ideas, and an expert in the special police force described the critical role of teamwork and its heavy reliance on team members in any operation.

Mock improvisation practices for managers have been able to expand learning about leadership by creativity and teamwork (Crossan, 1998; Koppett, 2013).

Although the existence of trust among team members was only one of the items in the scale measuring teamwork skills, trust was frequently emphasized in conversations about Improvisational events and seemed to be a critical factor when team members tried to work together to find a new solution to a problem.
