A LITTLE BIT ABOUT IMPROVISATIONAL ROLE-PLAYING
Most issues stem from people not listening to each other. This miscommunication results in a number of inefficiencies, conflicts and generally lower productivity. This atmosphere also creates an unappealing workplace environment to be in. No wonder many find WFH a nicer place to be.
To help with this, improvisational role-plays act as:
- fun activities which adults can let go with playing with words, concepts and ideas. Think Lego®, but with words.
- building blocks for people to find solutions to their workplace relationship issues.
And you can use role-plays:
- as a signal to your building’s tenants that you care about culture and a positive working environment. You are on the same page as them.
- to lift the mood across the whole building.
- to attract new tenants, or keep the ones you have.
