The Good, The Bad and the Bias

A corporate theatre workshop promoting

inclusive behaviours in the office

A distinctive and highly engaging workplace training session focused on the impact of inappropriate behaviours and unconscious biases in the workplace.

 

The Good, The Bad and the Bias picks apart the unconscious biases that underpin workplace rivalries and fuel poor behaviour in the office. As the characters navigate the effect their behaviours, intentions and expectations have on each other participants reflect on their own attitudes and actions and how to create an inclusive workplace where people are seen, and respected for who they are. 

The Good, The Bad and the Bias can be delivered independently as a 70-120 minute session or as a part of a half-day workshop.

The Story

When Kya is asked to take part in an interdepartmental project she can’t wait to meet new people and learn new skills.

 

The only problem is the rest of the team can’t stand each other, and she is about to find herself stuck in the middle of a workplace battle of wills.

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. 

  • FORUM THEATRE - Participants redirect the outcome of a scene, by intervening when characters demonstrate unhelpful behaviour, and offering feedback on appropriate behaviour.
