Patrick Lencioni made the First Team concept famous in his book The Five Dysfunctions of a Team. Leaders have since sought after the creativity and innovation that comes from cross-functional leaders working together, but it is easier said than done. ezCater's CTO, Erin DeCesare, has been using improv techniques to unlock the partnership and collaboration that leaders desire. In this workshop, experiment with practical, fun improv approaches you can bring back to your teams to power more creative solutions.

Key Takeaways:

  • The true ROI of improv: how one weekly exercise can unlock collaboration, break down silos, and empower cross-functional leaders.
  • Thinking outside the box: how leaving the concept of “stupid ideas” at the door can lead to real breakthroughs.
  • How to make it work: What makes an effective creative prompt? How should you provide feedback that doesn’t ruin creativity?
