The Shanghai Coaching Circle - Upcoming gathering
Monday, September 21st (7 to 9 pm, 6.30 pm welcoming)

Topic: Improvisation & Coaching

Why do companies such as Apple, Google, Coca Cola, Nike, Microsoft, and more use improv comedy in their executive coaching? The principles of improvisational theater – Agreement, Trust, Active Listening, Presence and Support are not only what help improv comedians create great scenes with no scripts, they are also the same principles effective leaders need to survive and thrive in our VUCA world today!

Curt Mabry and Company will share with YOU exercises and activities that he uses in coaching and training. In this relaxed and laugh-filled atmosphere, we will learn and play these games and discuss together how best they can be used in individual and group coaching. We look forward to an interactive and informative workshop, where our personal experience as coaching practices come feed the discussion.

Who's Curt?

Originally from the American South, Curt has lived and worked in China for 6 years. In 2009, he founded Zmack, which has grown from being an amateur improvisation comedy team to become Shanghai’s brand for comedy. His passion for entertaining and connecting with people led him to graduate from the University of Southern Mississippi with a degree in Radio, Television, and Film production. Curt has worked as a TV host for the Fox TV network, a radio journalist, a theatrical actor, and a professional singer. In China, this passion has led to teaching and training others. His experiences include administration of a respected international school, professional theatrical coaching and leadership facilitation using unique and unconventional methods of training and development. In addition to improvisational theater, Curt has formed Zmack Business Solutions to use improvisation techniques to help corporate customers to build trust and resolve conflicts, gain acceptance and buy-in, develop winning teams as well as to drive creativity and innovation.

Come prepared for in-depth discussions and powerful learning.

The objective of all of us is to get a unique opportunity to close the session with some great "take away". The more you prepare and share, the more you will learn.
