The Story

Lauren has just started in a new role, and she’s worried she doesn’t have what it takes, Ryan used to be on the ball, nowadays he struggles to keep up, and Lisa has had it up to here with her micromanaging supervisor.

 

We've all have our bad days at work, but how can you tell when it’s more than a case of the Mondays?

Techniques

  • CORPORATE THEATRE - Introducing new or challenging ideas through a theatrical storytelling lens, allowing the audience to observe, reflect, and put into practice new ideas in a safe and hands-off environment. 

  • CHARACTER INTERVIEW - Participants interview the actors in character, to uncover internal motivations, fears, and beliefs driving their observable behaviour. 

  • CHARACTER COACHING - Characters ask participants for advice on how to behave, and take that advice into their scenario. Participants are prompted to reflect on the effectiveness of their input.
