Entertaining 10:50 video from Dave Morris, a Canadian improviser. He describes the “way of improvisation” in 7 “rules”:
- let yourself fail (which is different to failing… giving yourself permission is half the issue)
- listen (listening is the willingness to change)
- say yes
- say and (we love “yes men”, but we love “and men” even more)
- play the game (whatever the constraints are, stay within them)
- relax and have fun.
Teaching improvisation in business we know that listening is one of the key skills people need to stay afloat. Listening to client briefs, hearing what your boss really wants, listening to your colleagues so your work dovetails together.
Sounds like fun!
