So, you’ve just done an improv workshop with your team and are asking yourself the million-dollar question of “Now what? How do I take this fun, seemingly one-time thing I did with my team and really make its effects last?” The good news is there is plenty you can do to continue to build and sustain an improv culture within your organization.
