“The world is getting more crowded. Depending on the circumstances, conversations across boundaries can be delightful, or just vexing: what they mainly are, though, is inevitable.” Kwame Anthony Appiah
Today’s rapidly changing and interdependent world has included a global migration where our society is increasingly ‘diverse’. In order to function effectively with a range of colleagues, service users, students and clients it is essential to improve one’s intercultural sensitivity (working with, understanding and being sensitive to cultural differences). Effective Intercultural Sensitivity is crucial to successful and optimum practice in all workplaces.

“Yes and..” Applied Improvisation for an Empathy Revolution. (Charo Lanao)Activism, Charo Lanao, Collaboration, Courage, Culture, Leadership, Self-Improvement, Trust, Workshops
In this workshop, participants will be exposed to the basic principles and tools of applied improvisation and will be invited to use these principles and tools for personal development, team building, creativity, innovation and wellbeing. Applied improvisation argues that creativity happens collaboratively by using the principle of short turn taking between individuals in the group. Creating an atmosphere of positive purpose, everyone is encouraged to contribute. Fear, suspicion and anxiety are replaced with focus, creativity and sense of collaboration. This approach allows individuals, groups and organisations to release their creative potential. The exercises in applied improvisation encourage risk taking, playfulness and to be in the moment. Consequently participants will find that they are having fun whilst also developing or challenging their existing mind-set. It is a way to unlearn to give space for new learning. Learn to be flexible and explore multiple perspectives. Be at ease in an uncertain world and be resilient, compassionate and playful.
