Defining Role Play 

Role play is defined as a practice in which an individual acts out or performs the part of a person or character. The act of role play is commonly associated with practices that include training and psychotherapy. As such, role play forms an integral part of our behavioural coaching courses. 

Our courses are rooted in drama-led activities that provide a clear picture and a narrative for attendees to follow. 

What Is the Purpose of Role Play?

The purpose of role play in drama is to act as a mirror, enabling individuals to witness behaviours first-hand rather than hear about them. We are a very image-oriented species and generally respond more dramatically to visual stimuli.  

We use role play in drama to re-enact toxic scenarios in the workplace while attendees act as witnesses. By seeing what impact these behaviours can have first-hand, attendees are incentivised to recognise and take ownership of their own behaviours. This lays the foundation for change. 

Why You Should Try Role Play?

If your place of work is overshadowed by toxic elements, then role play through drama is an effective means of addressing this problem. Often in cases like these, situations cannot be resolved internally, which is why our drama teaching tips can prove so invaluable. 

Role play in drama has been shown to greatly increase the likelihood that people will commit to changing their behaviour. And we’ve had great success with teaching managers and leaders how to be more inclusive. The result is a happier, more productive and inclusive work environment.
