Last year the CEO of LinkedIn, Jeff Weiner, laid out a clear problem for today’s workforce, “…somewhat surprisingly, interpersonal skills is where we’re seeing the biggest imbalance. Communications is the number one skill gap.” (emphasis added.)
Communications is the top skill gap, but most employees never get training specifically targeted to address that. So I want to help.
Workshops and Talks
Generally, Palermo Improv Training attacks various aspects of upgrading your interpersonal communication skills. We start with the foundations of creating a dynamic connection through Active Listening skills and using Heightened Emotional Intelligence. From there we work on Collaboration and Adaptability. All of the work includes a Focus On The Other that builds Trust and Inclusion. And the workshops build Team Cohesion as well as individual Self Confidence.
I present these techniques either as a talk with interactive elements (for larger groups) or as workshops where all participants actively engage.
Beyond these foundational elements, I work with your coordinators to customize the workshop to meet your group's learning objectives. For example, I've worked with designers who specifically wanted to Generate Creativity as well as executives upgrading their Leadership skills.
