Imposter Syndrome Course

When our external position happens to be greater than our perception of ourselves, we can feel fraudulent. This can result in a range of feelings, coming from a fear of this ‘gap’ being exposed. We may think behavioural choices can protect ourselves; however, these behaviours are not helpful for our performance. Together we will discover a range of games and exercises to uncover behaviours which are more useful, and will have you performing at your best.

GROUP SESSIONS

Storytelling

Humans are wired for stories. Leave this bespoke course with an authentic, honest version of where you came from and where you want to go, by applying the ancient principles of storytelling. Tell the story of your product, idea or role, so that people will want to listen.

Teambuilding

Great teams play well together.

And big companies such as Google and Facebook use improv games and tools to help teams to gel, to harness innovation or find their strengths. Find out why when you book a fun, mood enhancing improv session for your team.

Pitching and Presenting

Most of what we communicate is effected by how we say it, rather than what we say. Learn psychophysical techniques and acting tools to bring your presentation skills from good to great. Work with your team in a secure, positive atmosphere that celebrates risk.

TESTIMONIALS

"Thanks for coaching me - I can’t tell you how much I’ve enjoyed it, but also how much I got from it. So much more confident and better at my job - and as a person - for it. You were an awesome coach and I learnt so much that is going to have a huge impact for sure - thank you! It's going to stick with me for ever more, I know it."

Sean Longhurst,  Accelerator Coach at Propel Teams

"Maeve is one of a kind. She’s a pro at improv and has a huge mental library of tricks to take your skills to the next level — whether you’re a newbie or know a thing or two. Her gift, however, is being able to make everyone in a room feel comfortable, confident and excited to get stuck in. Even after a hellish day, class with Maeve would leave us all grinning. With that spirit, she took a bunch of strangers and turned us into a team that wow’d on stage during our final performance. I’m convinced she’s magic."

"You have changed my life and I am extremely grateful. Thank you for the warm and welcoming atmosphere in your class and for the opportunity to experiment and freely make mistakes. Your classes have continually been a highlight of my week."
