Let Cliff Help Your Team Uncover Its Creativity

Workshops for business teams


The What

  • A 60-90-minute in-person or virtual workshop/team-building activity using songwriting to explore your team's chosen topic or concern.
  • Participants are guided through the process of writing the lyrics to a song using a metaphor based on the issue being examined.
  • At the workshop’s high point, Cliff adds a melody and music to the completed lyric on the spot which, without exception, makes the workshop and its subject matter unforgettable.
  • The virtual workshop option has the added benefit of giving everyone a “front-row” seat to the songwriting process as attendees participate via chat and breakout rooms in the brainstorming of metaphor ideas, verse and chorus lyrics and even the genre of the finished song.
  • The workshop size can vary in size from as few as two participants to up over a hundred depending on the client's particular needs.

The How

  • Cliff first breaks down the process of lyric-writing into easily understood and manageable pieces.
  • Cliff then shows the participants how to employ storytelling and emotion-rich language in service of a profound exploration of the concept.

The Why

  • Instead of approaching issues with the same, tired problem-solving approach, Cliff's helps teams explore their issues in a unique way.
  • The workshop gives teams a genuine, emotional, musical (and fun) perspective on their chosen topic making the experience both enlightening and memorable.
  • The language of songwriting can help a team to clarify their goals and objectives by using metaphorical and inspirational language and music.
