Improv in business

I’m an avid improviser. So happy to listen to Kelly Leonard on hoomans podcast talk about how improv transfers to other human behaviours besides improvising on stage.

Improv is one of the rare times when you can mindfully linger inside a mistake

You get to truth through dissent

Everyone needs to understand they’re terrible at listening

Last word exercise: your next sentence starts with their last word

Exercise: say no to everything vs say yes to everything

Yes and exercise vs thank you because exercise

Everyone longs to be seen as we see ourselves

we’re fraught with anxiety in the moments before, not in the moment itself

Improv: all it is is human being practice: Listening, looking in the eye, be present, play in a big group. It’s not a ropes course once a year

Improv is yoga for your social skills

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

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

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

we have to replace blame with curiosity: what if they’re just curious?
