Rehearsal Lets You Fail Faster

Why theater? The theatrical process of rehearsal (probing, testing, refining) is the key to unlocking potential. By adapting that process to the workplace, Alliance​@work gives participants the opportunity to explore concepts “on their feet”, discover how to connect those concepts to their work, and practice applying what they’ve learned to their job-specific goals and objectives.

Alliance​@work adapts the theater rehearsal process to help you learn while doing. Experiences are built around four fundamental elements of The Actor's Toolkit.

Learning & Development Courses



Data can persuade an audience, but a story can move them. Theater artists are results-oriented storytellers who know how to match a story to the moment, so audiences feel, see, and know what you’re trying to say and will act on that information.

Emotional Intelligence in Critical Conversations

Everyone's personality influences the way they communicate and how they are perceived. Theater artists use their emotional intelligence to create something that causes people to think, feel, and respond in very specific ways. Develop your awareness of your 'scene partners', so you can be better understood and achieve your individual and team goals.

Delivering Powerful Presentations

In rehearsal, actors will run through a scene dozens of times, and they repeat their lines thousands of times in performance. How do they continue to create a performance that is alive and compelling each attempt? Good actors stay connected to what's going on and show up with authenticity and presence to get their jobs done. Learn to use the Actor's Toolkit to command the room and close the deal.

Rowing in the Same Direction: Present, Connected, and Productive Teams

An ensemble in theatre is a group of individuals dedicated to collaborative creation and committed to working together with a distinctive body of work and practices. Each person has a role. Everyone holds each other responsible and pushes each other. All are willing to adapt and be flexible to get more done and feel good doing it.
