The Second City has produced some of the most unforgettable satire and influential comedians of the last sixty years. Its pioneering methods inspire the mindsets and behaviors that lead to rapid innovation and incomparable content. Second City Works uses those same methods to create events, content, and professional development programs that drive personal growth and organizational improvement.
Whether you're a first job newbie or a grizzled exec, a startup or a multinational—if you want to perform better, we can give you an edge. Our offerings are designed to get people engaged and energized, and they’re unrivaled at driving action and improving critical skills like communication, collaboration, creativity, and agility.
Never underestimate the power of compound improvement.
Rather than a big transformation (although, fair warning, that could happen), we’re all about inspiring incremental improvements. We can drive immediate performance wins in one-off events, content partnerships, and workshops, and we can sustain that momentum with holistic, campaign-based approaches.
Really it comes down to this. We use humor and empathy, interactivity and dialogue, to elevate the conversation and inspire people to perform better.
