The goal of the Improv boost is that they can also have a little more playful time, animated by a member of the company in video, to really see their colleagues a bit, to do things and to start on a note. positive during the week, if it’s done on Monday, ”explains Julien Mallet-Cosson.
Moments to revitalize an evening too, like a corporate Christmas meal that can no longer be done. “These are the moments when we do small exercises based on materials inspired by the world of theatrical improvisation, with values and messages that are passed through these exercises, such as making things positive, sharing, to collaborate, to do together, but also to meet again ”specifies the improviser. “This can of course be broken down, like any service, in different ways with companies, and just be a bit of a” team building “moment where all together we will do funny things with the viso and share a moment together. Our goal is that people wait for that moment, that they wonder what we are going to organize, that they enjoy meeting others, a moment where we can also value what they have done. , at work or personally. »Has the time come to approach teleworking differently?
