Team-Building Workshops

joe teach circle

Improv is a combination of sharp communication skills, mental agility, creative problem solving and playful teamwork. These are the very same skills valued in the workplace, except they are employed in the conference room or client dinner instead of in front of a sold-out crowd.

From business-friendly topics like team development and public speaking, the most successful business people are often the greatest communicators! The Outcasters’ Team Building Workshops, will unleash the very best in your team through the power of Improvisation! We’ll assist in empowering strong, positive, and creative communication for members at every level of your business team!

Your team will learn improv techniques, skills and theories in a customized workshop setting, tailored for your groups size, needs and structure. You’ll have stronger teamwork, more effective collaboration, innovative brainstorming and problem solving.

We’d love to help you and your team unlock your full potential as collaborative geniuses! From team-building and brainstorming in your business, school or other human gathering, experiential improv does the job! Drop us a line… we’re here to help! Heck, we’ll even consult on projects and creativity! Get started with our Free Workshop Consultation today.

The executive staff at Banner Health Care enjoyed THE IMPROV EDGE Improv Training with Joe Hammer.

Joe and his team provided a very fun and impactful experience for our executive team. I immediately saw everyone highly engaged in the art of improv and the perspective it brings to us as leaders. What a fun and valuable lesson to listen carefully before responding while having a ton of fun along the way. I would highly recommend this experience for a team!

The team of licensed insurance agents with Advise Insurance enjoyed The Outcasters Team-Building Training

Joe was able to help us move into a space of vulnerability and ease... We were able, as a team, to develop skills and build rapport with one another. Our team-building session with Joe and The Outcasters lead to high team morale; it genuinely increased our joy and time spent together.

The energetic folks at Fingerpaint Ad Agency got creative at Improv Training with The Outcasters

The team and I had a fantastic time with The Outcasters. The team was very trepidatious about doing improv and the Outcasters created a safe space to the team to let their guards down and get into the exercises. They also chose exercises that we can use in our day-to-day work. In fact, several team members incorporated the game, "story in :30, :15 :07" in writing some social posts for Twitter. All in all, those who hadn’t done improv before said that it was not what they were expecting and they had a great time!

As a perceptive chameleon, Banter recognizes the importance of being adaptable. Banter came to be the Outcasters’ mascot after trying to find a place to cool off from the blazing Arizona sun. He stumbled inside a drop-in improv class and, after seeing what The Outcasters were all about, he quickly realized he was home! Whether you’re an experienced improviser, just beginning your improv journey, or attending one of our shows, Banter invites you to join us!
