LightSwitch: Where Team Culture Is at Play

LightSwitch workshops empower your staff to speak out and share their ideas in an environment of equality, which builds a team culture of trust where failure is a learning experience instead of a blow to self confidence. 


LightSwitch Consulting tailors workshops for clients using the fundamentals of applied improvisation. Applied improv isn’t about being quick-witted or funny, although those skills can be a bonus; it’s about listening and making others look good and feel heard. When the veil is dropped and judgement is set aside, self and team discovery can happen.

These workshops are for forward-thinking businesses, organizations, and non-profits who have identified challenges in their teams and are open to doing something different: investing in their staff by trying a non-traditional, play-based approach to surmount every obstacle.

Address Challenges Through Play

  • Half-day — A three-hour tailored workshop to drill down into a specific challenge through games and exercises founded in applied improv 

  • Full-day — Even more fun packed into a six-hour tailored workshop; recommended when addressing a few challenges at once

  • Workshop Series — Designed over multiple days, delivering a series made up of half-day or full-day workshops tailored to your team, to address multiple areas of concern 

  • Special Events — Customizable interactive sessions designed for larger groups (company-wide meetings, retreats, conferences, symposiums, etc.)

LightSwitch Consulting aims to help the culture of your team shift from negative to positive, from scared to engaged, and from being wary of others to making others look good.
“Our company has worked with Phil a number of times now, both in small group sessions as well as all-company workshops, and have always benefited from his ability to customize the sessions and tailor his approach to meet our needs. He brings high energy with a focus on fun and playfulness to a corporate setting in a way that allows our employees to fully engage in the activities while gaining insights and tackling important topics. He’s brought activities that have helped us address specific challenges such as supporting open communication, tackling conflict resolution, working collaboratively and celebrating mistakes. We look forward to working together with Phil in the future and would recommend him to any organization looking to engage staff in a unique, experiential and collaborative way.”
