Course description


Better Than Brainstorming

A Team Building, Leadership and Business Innovation Hackathon to Shake Things Up and Find Solutions

A “hack” is a “novel creation or solution to a problem,” and the purpose of a Hackathon is to generate solutions to a problem or situation. While Hackathons were created to promote business innovation in the IT community, this format can be used to solve problems or generate ideas in any leadership group, team or organization. You provide the situation and the participants create a solution, using the foundational principles of improvisation. This gives them greater capacity to be agile, think on their feet, accept unusual solutions and boost organizational dynamics.

Get ready for creative solutions and lots of fun! This is a high-energy motivational experience for leaders, executives, and all team members!

Applicable Categories: Business Innovation, Leadership, Team Building and more.

We combine improvisation and neuroscience to develop flexible, adaptable, positive leaders and teams. That’s the #ImprovEdge
