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."
