Listen! Say Yes! Commit!: Improvisation for Communication, Creativity, Teamworking and Leadership At Work
If you are looking to improve your or your team’s communications skills, creativity, teamworking or leadership skills, and you want to have fun while doing so, then this is the book for you. It provides an introduction to improvisation at work with an emphasis on both practice and theory, and an up-to-date international reference list. ‘Julia and Harry's book is a wonderful package of practical AND fun improv exercises that are very different from your standard training. I will be recommending this to MANY others!’ (Gene Johnson, former Head of Talent at Rackspace/Dell) ‘Harry and Julia nail the fundamentals of why this stuff matters: it teaches collaboration over competition, ‘holding on and letting go’, meaning building on what is there but having the flexibility to turn when circumstances demand it, and the formation of trust through laughter and shared endeavour.’ (Alex Fradera, writing in The Psychologist magazine May 2015)
