For Business Professionals

Think like an artist

The Guthrie Theater’s professional development classes, team trainings and CLEs are designed to connect business and legal professionals to the artistry and creative process of the Guthrie.

Through the power of live performance and exploration of the unique skills required to turn an idea into a fully realized production, these trainings challenge individuals to think like an artist when approaching their work, resulting in improved communication skills, creative problem-solving and inspired leadership.

Continuing legal education for lawyers 

With live performance, master facilitation and expert panelists – who knew fulfilling CLE credits could be so fun? In the spirit of our vision statement, our CLE programming combines live performance with masterful facilitation of real-life scenarios to help increase awareness of bias in our personal and professional lives so we may better safeguard the attorney’s role as protectors of equality. 

Professional development training for teams 

Our trainings are designed to fit the unique needs of each team. We recommend reserving 4+ hours to cover the content outlined below. These trainings are experiential by nature with on-your-feet games and exercises. Participants are encouraged to come dressed in comfortable clothing and shoes.

A fundamental part of these trainings is to inspire groups and individuals to take risks and think differently about their work. Our Teaching Artists are skilled in creating a space where participants feel safe and comfortable to explore and play.
