In our coaching sessions we as Coaches very often “dance in the moment” and we have to create from whatever our clients throw at us so we can bring out their magnificence. In improv our scene partner (and sometimes the audience too) throws suggestions at us so we together can create a story without a script, while we also aim to make our partner look brilliant.

In this session, we want to introduce and explore some of the basic rules and games of improv that we believe are also applicable to coaching. Certainly Improv has something to do with fun (for sure!), but overall it’s about connection and being in the moment here with your partner. So in particular, we think that the presented methods help very well to build a fruitful coaching relationship and to practice active listening as well as get in touch with (and trust) your intuition as coach.

You don’t need to have any theatre experience to join this session, all you need is curiousity and joy to “dance in the moment” as Improv is a playful way to practice presence.

Frank (PCC, CPCC) is living in Düsseldorf, Germany and led the business theater company GANGART Theater*Event*Training for many years. He’s now focussing on Coaching and Training still deploying his theatre background, as acting and esp. improv has shown him how important playfulness, agility and fun are for thinking differently and trying out new ways of doing things … to change ‘with joy’.


Su Mee lives by the idea that if you want something and it scares you, it means it’s important enough to pursue it. After an international corporate career in change management, she now combines coaching, improv, and mindfulness to help people grow their presence, confidence and impact in speaking and performing


Frank and Su Mee both certified as coaches with the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI) and met at a CTI Leadership course in London. They believe the art of improvisation is a great tool, in coaching as well as in life.
