Improv Comedy as a Tool to Become Adaptable

Creating Collaborative Cultures and Confident Communication

University student programs, corporate teams, & conference planners turn to us to develop their groups into adaptable collaborators & communicators.

We don’t teach improv comedy, we use improv as a tool for change through keynotes, workshops, & coaching.

"This is the most engaged I've seen my students since we started working together 4 years ago"

Program Administrator, on Green Light Improv workshops

I'm Nathan Minns

Improv did not come easily to me. It took me 7 auditions before I got into my first improv group.

After 7 auditions & countless classes, I realized improv is learnable and enhanced my work skills.

I watched myself become more creative and confident while becoming a better communicator, entrepreneur, and team member.

Those changes, backed by research, inspired me to quit my corporate innovation job and use improv full-time to develop groups into adaptable collaborators and communicators.

We help managers just like you, when you say…

"My Group Needs Help!"

...but you need something engaging, fun, & educational...

That’s where we come in.

Supercharge Communication

Improv isn’t just for comedy, it’s the skill of unscripted conversation. We use improv techniques to elevate active listening, presentation skills, and foster confident communication.

Catalyze Collaboration

Improvisers work harmoniously without any props or scripts, relying solely on each other. This philosophy can turn your group into a cohesive, trust-filled team.

Become Adaptable

Adapting to change and reacting in high-stress situations is crucial. Through improv, we teach your team to be nimble, intuitive decision-makers.

Foundational Improv Principles

"Yes, and..."

Cultivate a positive, “can-do” attitude by being present in the moment and using your perspective to create win-win situations for the team. Learn to make informed decisions through this empowering framework.

“Team Over Self”

Improv is a team sport. Experience the magic of collaborative creativity as we emphasize teamwork and reciprocal support, working together to achieve what would be impossible individually.

"Communicate Confidently"

Master the art of active listening, using empathy to process information, and being fully present when responding, paving the way for clear and effective communication.

"Failure is Feedback"

Embrace a growth mindset, as improv teaches us to learn from every experience, take calculated risks, and overcome obstacles with resilience and adaptability.

– Cristian Amaechi Morton, Olympian

Master's Student in the "Entrepreneurship and The Business Plan" Course at Ohio State University.

“I’m taking away that I can trust myself and my team to work as a collective to problem-solve and think on the spot and to focus more on listening rather than thinking of what I’m going to say next.“

– EMPLOYEE ON THE COMMUNICATIONS TEAM AT THE CITY OF DUBLIN, OHIO, USA

“One thing that I loved about Green Light Improv workshops is that Nathan is an authentic and dynamic leader, and made others who had never acted before feel comfortable.

It was funny, it allowed me to know my peers better, and even challenged me by working with a partner to carry out a scene. You get to know those around you through something other than your typical icebreaker, and you are also working on developing skills such as thinking on your feet, adapting, confidence, and the art of acting. Highly recommended!”

– GARLAND BIX, STUDENT AT MARYSVILLE HIGH SCHOOL & ALUMNI OF THE CENTRAL OHIO LEADERSHIP ACADEMY

“Working with Green Light Improv was a win win and a yes and! GLI provided our diverse high school students an opportunity to moveengage and think waaaay outside the box. Green Light worked closely with us to prepare and align their expertise with our program goals and fluidly integrated our learning outcomes! Their unique and engaging experience elevated our program, helped our high school students craft innovative thinking and explore relationships with others to grow their own thinking. We laughed and had fun getting out of our comfort zones! I look forward to having them back again next year!”

– ANDREA SUMMERS

Former Program Manager for the Central Ohio Leadership Academy

“He challenged us to bounce back and pivot when results don’t go our way.

I highly recommend this to anyone that has issues with your team engaging in meetings, or if you feel like your staff is bringing low energy to work. Make sure the supervisor is in the activity as well, so that It breaks down the “us vs them” mental barriers. It’s a fun way to overcome communication hiccups.

– SARAH VARUGHESE, CREATIVE VISIBILITY COACH & AUTHOR & PARTICIPATED AT A WORKSHOP AT INNOVATE NEW ALBANY

“My main takeaway was to be comfortable expressing myself & my personal values around others.

We used the “Yes AND…” mindset the entire weekend to constantly generate new ideas and reach our goals.
