From 2008-2020, I might have put fun last, but these days, most teams just need a chance to bond over laughter. Our shows and workshops start with fun. Simply playing Improv games replaces 1000s of lectures, books and annoying emails (aka MBA jargon). Simply playing these games, or watching a show, gets the team laughing together. The laughter alone breaks down walls, building strong bonds. Meanwhile, simply playing these games builds valuable team and individual skills: creative writing, critical thinking, public speaking, listening, focus, self confidence, self awareness and even empathy. These skills make us better team mates, better leaders, better sales and service reps.
I come from the philosophy:
GREAT SERVICE = GREAT SALES
IMPROV = PSYCHOLOGICAL SAFETY + PERFORMANCE DRIVE
In Improv Comedy, “YES!” is all about accepting your colleagues and their contributions to the team. “YES” is Psychological Safety! As we play Improv games we are all equals, regardless of age, experience, race, creed, personality etc. We create a safe space and level playing field for all to play. We accept our colleagues 100% as is. EVERYTHING they say and do. We do not judge. We do not fear.
“AND…” is all about contributing valuable work and information to the team. We are not going to let our colleagues do all the work by simply saying “YES!” We are going to take this to the next level by accepting our colleagues work and building upon with our own contributions, supporting everything that comes before our new addition.”AND…” is Performance Drive, coming from within.
When the whole team embraces “YES! And…” we enter the learning zone together. The entire team is now personally engaged in the success of the team. This brings out the best in all of us. We leave ego and insecurity behind. We trust ourselves and our team. We now are hyper focused on team success and its goals. The entire team accepts and overcomes challenges together. The entire team has agency. The entire team wins.
