Comedy is a secret weapon for communication. It opens closed mental doors and lets new information and ideas slip through. For leadership and talent development, we offer executive coaching programs, presentational skills trainings and improvisation-based leadership development.
We can deliver a message that not only reaches your audience, but transforms them.
- Employees become brand advocates, championing your culture, strategy and mission.
- Business partners become strategic allies who look forward to working with you again and again.
- Consumers become fans, true believers who will spread the word.
Use Boom Chicago to develop a leadership program that focuses on communication skills and dealing with unforeseen demands of the current complex business environment. Boom Chicago used the principles of improvisation to achieve this because the heart of improvisation is listening and collaborating to create something new together.
At our theater, we do not go into an improvisation scene with an expectation of where it will go. We have to listen, interpret and move forward. The same skills make us better improvisers (listening, understanding various points of view, asking the right questions, not being thrown by change) are what Boom Chicago teaches leaders and teams to be more successful.
“I have to admit, we had our doubts at first about Boom Chicago. But Boom’s comedians, writers and coaches worked with us to make potentially difficult subjects easy to talk about. They identified the doubt and cynicism in the room, and helped find the beginning of a situation. They illustrated it with humor and made our transformation journey more enjoyable and successful. If you want to bring humor, focus and energy to a key organizational change, Boom Chicago can help.”
