Theatre-Led & C4 experiential learning

We help you rehearse for REAL life

What is Theatre-Led Learning? What is C4?

Theatre-Led Learning (TLL) draws on our creative background as theatre-makers, actors, writers and directors. We bring a theatre director’s eye to our workshop designs, and support participants to put theory into practice by applying rehearsal room techniques to workplace learning.

We focus on the ‘HOW’ of human behaviours at work and translate those into practical, experiential, enjoyable skill-building workshops and development journeys. Our aim is to create confident role models for positive workplace behaviour.

The C4 Dialogue Navigator® is our proprietary model developed to teach the skills of effective interpersonal dialogue. From town halls to daily huddles, from collaboration to conflict, from innovation to negotiation – dialogue is the lifeblood of organisations and a key building block of corporate culture. We’ve spent decades training leaders and teams to have more effective dialogues, regardless of topic or titles.

How we work

Working both face-to-face and through our award-winning online designs, theatre-led learning lets participants experiment, adapt and practice. We work with fishbowls and forum theatre, roleplay and realplay, improvisation, presence & presentations, and play-based methodologies (including Lego® Serious Play®). We engage the whole person, and the whole group, in behavioural experimentation for learning that lasts.

Our pioneering Asia-wide team of Actor-Facilitators specialises in intervention coaching and in-the-moment feedback for TLL and C4 work. That means participants feel the learning, as well as understanding cognitively; they don’t just ‘get it’, they learn to ‘do it’. We’ve applied this approach in one-hour virtual workshops and throughout year-long blended development journeys. We’ve worked at C-suite level, with regional leadership teams and with next generation high potentials.

Our diagnosis & design process is deeply curious and highly creative. As a full-service partner, we also work behind the velvet curtains, ensuring 'backstage' logistics and technology run smoothly. Automated nudges, individual/group coaching and action-learning projects help the learning stick.
