How Improv can Improve Your Leadership and Your Life

TED Residency [December 2018]

We are loving Mary Lemmer’s short TED Talk, drawing the connection between improv and business leadership. Being present is essential to both, as is listening deeply and learning to say YES! She breaks down her main points as follows:

1) Yes AND! Learn to acknowledge the way that things are, and build on top of it.

2) There are no mistakes. Everything that happens is a gift, and a tremendous opportunity to learn.

3) If it feels weird, DO IT! The best decisions in life require a risk.

In the innovative workplace, it is essential to create a safe and supportive environment where people are comfortable to break free from patterns try something new. Only than can you LEAD by example.
