An Interactive Experience to Transform Your Leaders and Connect People

What Is The Hippo Show?

 The Hippo Show is a leadership case study, except live, on-stage, and interactive.  Professional actors portray “managers” and “leaders” tasked with executing initiatives and achieving performance in ‘real-life.’ Audience members interact with the characters to discover their strengths, challenges, stories, and contradictions. Audience members coach the characters to resolve the story by modeling better behaviors and creating connection.

The experience is fun and engaging while at the same time thoughtful and provocative. Your managers will discover how to transform their own leadership and create cultures of connection.

Is This You?


You want to transform how your managers think about leadership that goes way beyond book knowledge.


You want to create a culture where everyone is connected that translates into better performance.


You want people to enjoy and respect their leaders instead of tolerating them.


You want a unified focus instead of competing agendas and silo mentalities.


You want to bring leadership principles to life in a way your leaders will never forget.
