A Special Thank-You From Russell & Ken

What an AMAZING year 2019 has been!

We're humbled and thrilled by the recognition and popularity our programs have been receiving!


At the CPHR Conference in the spring we had the opportunity to speak with so many professionals who could relate to the experience of having to deal with a "Bad Boss" as they shared some of their bad boss experiences leading to our discussion about the "TOP 3 WORST TYPES OF BOSS"!

“Bluegem’s engaging and informative session at our 2017 Foreman’s workshop proved to be a huge success. The role playing of scenarios presented our leadership group with the opportunity to both engage in and/or observe as close to real life situations as possible when managing employee performance. I strongly recommend this style of leadership training for any organization looking to provide their leadership group with skills, tools and information when it comes to managing employee performance.”

- Dean Jetten, Volker Stevin

It was an honor to be invited back to CPHR for the fourth year in a row to present on the principles of leadership and effective team building, and it was so exciting to see attendees interacting with our our actors in their VIKING HATS!

The response to our monthly Lunch & Learns has been truly exceptional as we've seen managers and team leaders become aware of how they can COACH more effectively, MANAGE problematic situations, LEAD from the middle of the organization, or even INFLUENCE their organization from the bottom becoming a truly valuable ASSET FOR THE ORGANIZATION.

It's become more and more clear that our "FORUM THEATER FOR BUSINESS" methodology, which allows managers to "act their way into a new way of doing" is one of the most effective training tools on the market!


We've now worked with hundreds of managers and HR professionals from a variety of industries and backgrounds to improve their leadership skills.

After all...


Stronger leaders results in more effective teams, and more effective teams results in increased productivity and profitability.



What Makes This Training So Effective?

Typical training courses provide participants with knowledge, but then leave them to apply that knowledge on their own back at the work place. By combining our knowledge based training with carefully constructed scenarios utilizing professional improv actors, our training becomes a work based simulation rather than a simple training course.

The brain doesn’t determine between simulation and reality...


When your managers are immersed in one of our forum theatre activities it becomes the ‘real thing’, as close to reality as possible. Not only does this teach new skills, but also aids the retention of that learning after the course.


The practical nature of our training suits all participants whether office or field based.



Help Your Team See Clearly in 2020

  • Could your managers use some increased motivation?

  • Are certain departments always in trouble or slow to make progress?

  • Is the culture within the organization making progress hard or impossible?
