The Art of Possibility | Improv Tips

Professional actress and teacher Vicky Saye Henderson gives a TEDx Talk on the importance of play.

When Vicky Saye Henderson first started improvisational acting, she didn’t think about the fact that the skills and techniques she was using could be applied almost anywhere. In this TEDx Talk clip, Vicky explains:

“I soon realized that many vocations could use this as a means of learning other things. So that’s why I call it ‘the art of possibility’ – it helps us birth lots of things.”

Improv Tips That Work

Vicky tells her audience that there are three important rules to improvisation that are fundamental with every interaction that we have with other people.

  1. Make your partner look good and feel insanely smart
  2. Train your brain to go with your gut
  3. “Yes, and…” – accept, and build on top of [ideas].

Discover your own ways to apply the rules of improvisation and discover the art of possibility in the workplace through our fun and interactive improv programs. You’ll learn improv tips and tricks that can be applied to just about any work situation.
