Working Better Together

Moving from “yes, but”, to “yes, and”

Is saving face getting in the way of innovation and productivity? Could your organization benefit from more authentic and compelling communication?

Working Better Together is a fun, activity-driven approach to strengthening team collaboration and communication. Using applied improvisational techniques, communication science, and management theory, we offer a transformative group experience that will help teams develop a different working paradigm. In our highly interactive workshop, we will focus on:

· Team building — embracing the principle of “making your partner look good”

· Collaboration — cultivating trust in teams through applied improvisation

· Communication — developing collective narratives that will drive your team

Applied improvisation has been embraced in many fields such as healthcare, leadership, technology, science and community building. Drawing on the work of Sivasailam “Thiagi” Thiagarajan, Kat Koppett, and Keith Johnstone, this workshop offers a dynamic experience to inspire working better together.


Mallory Penney has a passion for improvisation and organizational development. She is a member of the Applied Improvisation Network and holds a B.A. in Theater and Performance Studies from the UCB. As a training strategist, Mallory helps her clients strengthen communication & leadership skills through applied improvisation team building programs. Mallory is a firm believer that “fun” is the operative word when it comes to peeling away inhibitions in the workplace to allow collaboration and effective communication to emerge.
