We apply the principles of improvisation to the corporate space to bring out everyone’s best. We believe in the power of creativity, teamwork, and taking risks in an environment where innovation is encouraged, and the fear of failure is a far-off concept.
Improv’s main principle is known as the philosophy of “Yes, And.” This simple, but powerful principle sets the foundation for improvisers and employees alike to work together to successfully build toward a common goal, and to enjoy the process while they get there.
At Rebelle Creative Strategies, we start with “Yes, And” and explore applying the principles of improvisation to your team and your work in order to reap the many benefits the practice of improv can offer. Our training programs and workshops are experiential, interactive, and effective. We believe professional development should be engaging, and that work should be enjoyable and rewarding for individual employees and companies alike, and every Rebelle session reflects that.
