The Story

Kendall knows what it takes to be successful and is determined to pass those skills onto the rest of his team.

 

When the business implements an organisation wide diversity and inclusion overhaul, he doesn’t understand why he needs to focus on the touchy feely side of management when it’s the bottom line that really counts.

Techniques

  • CORPORATE THEATREIntroducing new or challenging ideas through a theatrical storytelling lens allows 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 the internal motivations, fears, and beliefs driving their observable behaviour.

  • CHARACTER COACHINGCharacters 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.
