Early Saturday morning today. But worth it!
I spent a few hours with a fun-loving and very smart group of Chinese HR professionals in Beijing, facilitating an online session on how to deal with fast change, the improvisational mindset and the role of spontaneity and playfulness in high performance collaboration.
I look forward meeting them in September, when I’m invited to work a full week with them on facilitation skills and applied improvisation!
Last week Raymond had a great day with the high potentials from Capgemini at the Capgemini university.
We talked about and played with Applied Improvisation techniques and about their value in nowadays work.
Key Learning objectives:
Better leadership in dealing with change and VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) environments
How to create stronger connections between you and others and within your team culture
Self reflection in one’s individual leadership and communication style
The value of Applied Improvisation, playfulness and spontaneity as a key success factor for 21st century business
The distinction between the Head (analytical skills), Hands (exploration, error tolerance) and Heart (emotional communication)
The improvisational mindset and skills, the PLAY! model: Presence, Leaping, Adaptivity, Yes-and and having Impact
Very proud to say that Raymond was on Czech television last month! He was interviewed about his favourite subjects: Improvisation and Playfulness, and how to apply that in the tougher Czech work climate. It was followed by a full week of training to managers and trainers. #lovemywork #managers #trainingoftrainers #appliedimprovisation
A few months ago Raymond was invited by Turkish Airlines and BMC to deliver a keynote for their corporate network. The Mindset of Serious Play! is getting more and more relevant and important for our corporate lives. We specifically talked about how to use Applied Improvisation and Playfulness to deal better with change, attract customers and elevate employer brands.
It was followed by very engaging, inspiring, joyful discussions and more collaborations in the months afterwards!
