Creativity Training Galore!

This week The Go Game went to beautiful Boulder, CO to run a
creativity training for the first-year attorneys at a large,
international law firm. Led by Michelle (Game Producer) and Lisa
(Improvisation Guru), we spent the day making movies, doing
improvisation exercises and discussing how to take the creative process
back to the law firm to create a more successful and supportive work
environment.

We divided everyone into teams, which were comprised of the learning
groups that these first-year lawyers will work intimately with over the
next year. At the end of the day, we were thrilled to hear that our
Creativity Training really helped the players develop stronger
relationships with their team members and coworkers. In our final
debrief, one guy said:

“It’s amazing how often these ‘team building’ activities just show you
how un-trustworthy your coworkers are. You know, you do a trust fall and
no one catches you… that sort of thing. But I actually feel much closer
to my coworkers after today! I feel confident that we can trust each
other and will support each other this year. This was definitely the
best team building I’ve ever done!

You can see just how close the teams became with this eloquently-written
love note written from one team to another…

In all seriousness though, the training was an amazing event, and it was
really fulfilling to see the players so engaged in learning about
themselves and their teams. It seems that we helped them create a work
environment that will contribute greatly to their success in their first
year at the firm.

Here’s what our client said about the game…

“Hi Michelle,
Thank you (and Lisa) for running a very successful program… the
associates certainly had some fun videos and good learning that came out
of the process. I think the combination of improv and videos made the
program engaging and the afternoon flew by.
I hope to work with you and Lisa again in the future.”

Creativity Rocks!
