THREE MISCONCEPTIONS of “DOING” IMPROV:
- You have to BE FUNNY.
- The ability to improvise is something that some people were born with and not a skill that can be learned.
- You’ll have to perform in front of your peers.
Good news! These are just misconceptions.
The idea of “doing improv” freaks a lot of people out. And understandably so, if they think they are going to be put on the spot or perform scenes.
The reality is, improv skills, as derived from the comedic art form, can be incredibly helpful in mindset management, collaborative communication, and inspiring innovation.
Beginning with the rule of “Yes, And” – which is a simple and effective tool for everyone in the workplace and WAY beyond – you and your teams can unleash the potential of each individual AND the collective.

All beginning with the two little words: YES. AND.
