Creative Corporate Programs
Watch your employees transform from regular Clark Kents to creative superheroes who will innovate your company and take it to the next level.
Our exercises allow team members get to know each other on a deeper level. It's also a great opportunity to foster connections between remote teams.
We challenge participants to work together to tackle challenges that they might initially think they can't do. By working together, everyone discovers their hidden potentials and feels accomplished and joyful!
We promote a sense of community and loyalty in a safe environment that is judgment-free so that everyone feels included, especially if they are working remotely.
Our programs use art and improv as a base and ensure a good work culture, drive workplace innovation.
They aim to promote good mental health, a sense of community and happiness.
Hi! We are Linda and Kim, the co-founders of My Creative Break. Not long ago, our journeys in overcoming stress, mental health and illness prompted us to start a community to motivate people to get in touch with their creative side and do things they love, no matter how busy they are.
We both come from the corporate world; Kim has 8 years experience working in corporate marketing and 5 years of teaching ESL in Europe, Asia and online. Linda is an ACC/ICF certified Life Coach and has 15 years of experience as an accountant. Together, we have over 10 years of experience in team building, improv, animation, public speaking and theatre.
As women of color, our goal is to foster a safe and judgement-free environment. We aim to bring an element of fun, connectivity and creativity to your days, work meetings and events so that your teams feel accomplished, happier and more motivated, which increase productivity and business.
What makes our programs unique?
TAILORED TO YOUR TEAM OR COMPANY
Each program is tailored to your team. We work with you before, during and after the sessions.
INDIVIDUALL + TEAM DEVELOPMENT
All exercises benefit everyone in a unique way, while it helps them strengthen as a team.
IMPROV + CREATIVITY
All of the exercises are based on 'improv' principles and creativity techniques.
STAY PRODUCTIVE & LEARN NEW SKILLS
We work on skills like collaboration, creativity, risk-taking, problem-solving & more.
NO PROPS NEEDED, JUST IMAGINATION!
Teams are challenged to think outside the box and work their creativity in a safe environment.
Teams get out of their comfort zones and get to know each other on a deeper level.
Creative Team Building
Strengthen teamwork and allow your team to have fun and feel more connected to other team members while they work on essential skills of your choice like communication, productivity, and creativity. All exercises use creative activities and improv as a base. We can also create customized workshops suited to your needs, for example for onboarding new employees, welcoming teammates or partners from out of town, special occasions like product launches, holiday parties.
We’re always happy to deliver a customized presentation or workshop on topics like Creative Breaks, getting out of your comfort zones and taking risks, or share our personal stories of how we boosted our mental health, confidence and problem solving abilities. We recently did a motivational presentation on self-care and work-life balance for Salesforce.
Ice Breakers & Team Bonding
Strengthen your in-person or remote team. Many employees working remotely say they feel isolated and could use better mental health. Our team bonding sessions feature creative challenges that focus on teamwork and collaboration and help employees get to know each other and connect in a different way.
Interactive City Walk with Creative Challenges
An interactive experience in which we walk through a cool part of the city and stop at different interesting spots. At each spot, we do a different activity to spark our imagination and creativity, letting the space or landmark inspire us. We'll do some individual exercises and group challenges that allow teams to get to know each other, expand their creativity, use their imaginations, and work on skills like teamwork, getting out of your comfort zone, communication and listening.
Only in Montreal, for now.
Why we developed these programs
After our personal "creative breaks," we felt happier and refreshed, and wanted to bring this feeling to everyone to ensure good mental health. We saw that the following make people happy:
Doing thing they like and making time for themselves
Trying new things
Feeling supported / understood
All the activities in our programs ensure these and are based on our passions - creativity and improv. "Improv," in the sense of our workshops, refers to exercises that require collaboration, spontaneity and risk-taking. For example, challenges that require teams to invent things or solve problems on the spot. Creativity and improv have personally helped us in our lives inside and outside of work. They have enabled us to get out of our comfort zones, develop essential skills like confidence, quick thinking, solving problems spontaneously and being able to adapt to changing environments. They have also helped us complete successful projects.
