Improv Night with Upright Citizens Brigade

RSVP required

Join the PIHRA Young Professionals at the 2018 California HR Conference!

#PIHRAYP is hosting an interactive workshop with Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB) for Young Professionals at #CAHR18. The UCB Improv comedy teams routinely create funny performances on the fly. In this interactive workshop you’ll learn the comedy fundamentals that double as professional skills with performers from the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater.

Experience how comedians use “Yes And” to upgrade communicating, and test practical tools to be more creative and productive with coworkers. You’ll leave this session with simple improv principles that will make collaborations at work exciting, rewarding and intuitive. 

It’s also fun! And no one will be forced on stage – we promise.

Key takeaways

  • Yes And
    Make your first instinct to support an idea.  Productive 
    collaborations and conversations are on the other side of “Yes, And.”
  • Truth in Comedy
    We are drawn to authenticity. Think of being yourself as a tool to increase understanding, persuasiveness and trust.
  • Think on Your Feet
    Everyone wants to be able to think fast, especially under pressure. There’s no substitute for preparation, but being present can help you roll with the unexpected in the moment.
  • Read The Room
    Plans and preparation are great just don’t let get in your way during a presentation. Being present helps you roll with the unexpected and keeps your presentations engaging.
  • Listen Up
    Listen to the very last word. Resist the urge to start formulating what you’ll say while the other person is still talking
