Change and the art of being in change has always fascinated me. For 25 years, I focused my curiosity within the theatre environment to develop a unique training approach for ensemble-based improvisational performance. With my husband, Raymond Victorio, we founded Creative Agility, leading Applied Improvisation workshops & retreats for professionals to enhance their creativity, intuition and connection with others. Natalie Victorio, formally joined our team in 2009, and manages our PDP Personality Styles training and assessment programs.
In 1994, I started to work with organizations and family businesses across the country. Building a successful team is like casting a film – you can have all kinds of talent on the set, but if they don’t connect with each other, or if there is no chemistry igniting a creative spark between your players, your project will fall flat of expectations. We found our approach was extremely effective in helping teams navigate change, find their creative flow and work together more effectively, or as we like to call it, become an ensemble.
A variety of issues can get bundled up during major transitions, creating stress, destroying morale and stifling progress. By addressing one issue at a time to design agreements, find alignment and develop a strategy for achieving the desired objectives, we create a “safe and courageous space” for business teams to navigate change. We coach teams through difficult topics to help each person contribute in building the road map for the future. We have become recognized innovators in leadership, building team morale and navigating change.
