Improv is yoga for your social skills

Improv is an art form and a practice to help people make better choices

improv is multitasking and purpose-led: hierarchical leadership doesn’t work

Life-related quotes

You get to truth through dissent

Everyone needs to understand they’re terrible at listening

Everyone longs to be seen as we see ourselves

There is discomfort in looking for a new pattern

as a group we’re as strong as our ability to cover for our weakest member (not as strong as the weakest member)
