Do You Need G.U.T.S.?

Looking for team building? Our Group Unity Training Seminars (GUTS) embody experiential training at its best.  Our workshops are engaging, interactive, meaningful and entertaining. We showcase and analyze the elements that make improvisation successful, then provide empowering applications. Plus, our right-brained approach gives all attendees a memorable experience laughing as much as learning.

All the seminars in the world won’t do any good unless the people–the members of your team–become actively involved, understand the basic theory and then see it successfully applied.  Our method is a common sense, hands-on, get-up-off-your-chair-and-have-fun approach that will have your group energized, laughing and communicating.

It’s simple:  When people are having fun, they’re relaxed.  When they’re relaxed, they’re listening.  When they’re listening, well…that’s when real communication takes place.  And that’s good!

Our Programs

Teamwork, Without the Work

Through a series of fun, on-your-feet activities based on improvisational theatre techniques, participants explore skills such as listening, collaboration, adaptability, focus, innovation, and replacing your inner script with moment-to-moment response. Programs are designed to create a safe environment in which participants feel comfortable letting go of inhibitions, laughing and experiencing colleagues in a new light. After each exercise, our expert facilitator leads a discussion in which participants examine the skills explored and how they can immediately apply these new techniques to enhance productivity in the workplace.

Team Building

A team is only as strong as its ability to work together. These programs get your employees thinking and more importantly, listening differently. 

Collaboration & Communication

Through a series of fun, on-your-feet activities based on improvisational theatre techniques, participants explore skills such as listening, collaboration, releasing pre-conceived agendas, adapting to change, committing to choices with confidence, multi-tasking, and creative thinking.  The program is designed to create a safe environment in which participants feel comfortable letting go of inhibitions, laughing and seeing each other in a new light. No one is singled out for performance – everything is group-based and supportive. After each exercise, our expert facilitator leads a discussion in which participants examine the skills needed to perform the exercise successfully, and how they can immediately apply these new skills to enhance productivity in the workplace.

Collaboration & Communication – Demonstration with Workshop

Our team of performer-facilitators perform a series of improvisational theatre games for the large group, followed by large group discussion of the skills of the improviser, followed by dividing into small group workshops similar to Program One, and culminating in a short performance for the large group, incorporating participant volunteers.

Collaboration & Communication – Performance with Group Exercises

This program is a full ComedySportz performance interspersed with facilitated exercises that the participants do in pairs in their seats.

Customer Service

Your biggest asset is your client base. Treating them with respect and courtesy is the key to making them repeat customers. This program explores the skills needed to provide excellent customer service. 

Through a series of on-your-feet activities, this program explores the skills needed to provide excellent customer service to both internal and external customers.  In this session, we work to reduce the internal ‘script’ running through your mind as you answer customer questions, and replace that script with present, in-the-moment responses that allow the receiver to feel heard and walk away thrilled with the personal attention and care.

We work on reducing the ‘it’s not my job’ syndrome and replace it with a sense of teamwork and the ability to ‘make everyone look good.’, physical and vocal signals of status, and come to an understanding of how sending signals of equal status helps build trusting relationships.  All exercises are based on the skills we improvisers need to collaborate on stage and create instant magic. Our expert facilitators will help you apply those improv skills to your participants’ specific work situations.  The session is fun and full of laughs, and the participants walk away with practical, applicable skills they can apply to immediately improve customer service.
