Russ Faillaci of Madcap Theater plays a critical role in the leadership development programs we offer. Utilizing experiential techniques that challenge leaders to think on their feet and solve problems, Russ helps leaders understand the importance of effective communication skills. Russ has the unique ability to create a sense of team spirit while challenging individuals to stretch outside of their comfort zone in a safe, comfortable learning environment. The training and development sessions offered by Madcap truly help leaders evaluate their current approach for interacting with others—and, more importantly, apply new skills to help them improve their own performance and that of their teams.
Madcap offers fabulous corporate team-building events. They get people to think and act outside the box in a really fun way, while teaching listening, collaboration and risk-taking. Every time I take a group to Madcap, I realize I haven’t laughed that hard since the last time I was there. Russ and his team work with people who have never done improv before in a fun, supportive, non-judgmental way that feels safe even while taking a risk. We have found Madcap to be a great addition to any leadership program or team-building event.
We recently had the pleasure of working with Russ Faillaci of Madcap Theater on a team building and communication training session for our organization. His approach was fun, insightful and very different from a typical training session. The key concepts around being in the moment, listening effectively and team member interdependence are explored and practiced in such a safe and creative environment. Russ also did a great job of learning the basics of our business environment and making that connection with all participants for takeaway and application. I highly recommend this approach and working with Russ and his team to any organization looking to build stronger teams and customer focus.
