1. Introduction to Improv

Our first session is all about building a strong foundation. We believe this is an essential part of both improv and coaching. So we’ll look at how we can establish trust and safety with our clients, how we co-create the relationship, and we’ll do exercises that help us maintain presence.

2. Being Present

This session is all about being present, active listening, and co-creation. We’ll look at how we maintain presence and how we can create from it. We’ll play games that focus on active listening, which will also help us to be curious, manage our judgement, and stay in connection with our clients.

Peer Coaching Practice

Practise your improv coaching skills with your peers. You can schedule the coaching sessions at a time that works for you and your coaching partner.

3. Storytelling & Metaphors

Let’s make it more interesting! We’ll work with metaphors and storytelling, creating stories and images together. We’ll also look at the impact of the language we use and how we can choose our words to write our own life stories and create new perspectives.

Peer Coaching Practice

Practise your improv coaching skills with your peers. You can schedule the coaching sessions at a time that works for you and your coaching partner.

4. Completion & Celebration

Just like with coaching journeys, we’d like to close our Improv for Coaches with a celebration and look at how far we’ve come. There will also be time for questions and requests – we can play new games or go back to your favourite games and play them again. Improv games, just like coaching sessions, are never the same.

Improv for Trainers and Facilitators

To really get your message and course objectives across, it’s essential that you connect to your audience and your co-facilitator. Come play with us and learn how you can create impactful training sessions that respond to the needs of your audience, while also having lots of fun. Build your confidence to dance in the moment, connect with your co-facilitator, and create a little bit of magic in the training room.

What coaches say


I had the pleasure of attending an improv coaching workshop led by Su Mee Tan and Lori Shook. The bespoke design of the workshop, tailored to our needs, truly stood out. With a small, intimate group setting, we were able to dive deep into the exercises, ensuring personalised attention and feedback. The complementing energy Su Mee and Lori brought to the room was making the learning process not only insightful but also incredibly fun. Their expertise in gently nudging participants out of their comfort zones, while maintaining a supportive environment, was amazing.

I left the workshop feeling invigorated, full of confidence to surrender and a toolkit of strategies to implement in my facilitation and coaching practice. I wholeheartedly recommend their workshops to anyone looking to expand their range and include improv into their coaching repertoire in a dynamic and engaging setting.

Maja Seggerman
Executive Coach & Intercultural Team Facilitator

Working with Su Mee has been transformative. As an improv coach, she brings a unique blend of fun, gentleness, and deep knowledge to her workshops. When you step into her space, you’re greeted with an atmosphere with no right or wrong—only endless possibilities for growth and self-discovery.
I’ve had the privilege of attending her workshop designed for coaches, and it’s been an incredibly liberating experience.
Su Mee has a knack for helping you break free from your limitations. Thanks to her guidance, I’ve shed the ‘good girl’ syndrome and stepped out of my comfort zone.
But what truly sets Su Mee apart is her approach to improv. It’s not just about entertainment; it’s about profoundly impacting how you think and act. She’s a treasure trove of surprises and knowledge, and every session with her leaves you feeling empowered and inspired.
If you’re looking for a coach who can help you unlock new dimensions of yourself, Su Mee is the one to go to.

Anna Zoladkiewicz
Conscious Leadership Coach

“I can honestly say that I never had so much fun in a training & applied so many new things at the same time. I decided to sign up because I sometimes struggle with presence and with allowing myself to bring more play & fun during sessions. I learned that there is so much wisdom and beauty in improv.

Su Mee really models presence and improvisation and shares openly what’s happening from her perspective. During the sessions time flies. I loved how energized I felt during the calls and after.

Thank you for creating such a powerful experience.”

Coach, Amsterdam

“Su Mee Tan was amazing! She was so engaging and enthusiastic. And I loved the break out rooms – this was the most fun I’ve ever had on an ICF call!”

“I was pleasantly surprised at just how applicable and effective of a tool it can be in coaching clients who may be stuck, need a perspective shift, or just a lighter, more fun experience to gain insight.”

“As a seasoned improviser, I appreciated this opportunity to explore the relevance explicitly to coaching. Thank you!”

“Thank you for a great workshop, and fun too. Improv is a great tool to add to our coaching tool box to strengthen our relationship with our clients. Furthermore, it teaches us to relax and to be fully present. I’d definitely attend another workshop in the future.”

Hi, I’m Su Mee

Coach. Trainer. Improviser.

I used to plan everything, including my coaching sessions. I’d get nervous if I didn’t know what topic or emotion a client would bring to a session, and I’d be stuck in trying to remember the tools and structures I learned in my coaching training. Until I found improv.

Improv taught me to really be in the moment, to dance with whatever is thrown my way, to listen, to connect, and to trust my intuition. And all this while being playful and having fun. I’ve poured all of this into my Improv for Coaches workshops and hope to bring that fun to you and your coaching too.
