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.
- Make your partner look good and feel insanely smart
- Train your brain to go with your gut
- “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.

What happens when you find yourself, and your employees in a work rut? Don’t worry, it’s pretty common. That’s why TeamBonding is here! When you don’t have anything new, inspiring, or challenging happening in the workplace, you may find you and your employees in a work rut. Let’s talk about these 4 tips for getting out of a rut at work!
Virtual Reality Now Available As A High Tech, High Touch Team Building Event Let’s travel in time back to the ’90s when Virtual Reality now known as VR concept was just a thought? There were some prototypes, but unfortunately, they were far from becoming a reality. The only VR devices that were on the market by that time were heavy, huge machines that weren’t portable at all.
I can get inspiration from anywhere but I never thought it would be from my neighborhood fast food place. Truth is, it’s not just my neighborhood restaurant, McDonald’s is one of the most successful worldwide brands and they just introduced a similar strategy to my company. Maybe they were inspired by us?
At TeamBonding we love having the chance to help our clients give back and helping their communities. It’s even better when we can help companies focus on their corporate social responsibilities and actually have an impact instead of creating vague initiatives. Part of the fun for us is coming up with new ideas and creating new programs to continue giving back. We have a variety of programs from our Charity Bike Build and Team Teddy Rescue Bear programs, Operation Military Care to provide care packages to our troops, all the way to Paws for a Cause where you make dog beds, pull toys, or cat scratchers for animals in shelters – among so many other charitable program options!
Mention team building and you’ll see a lot of eye rolls. Mention that you’ve planned a team building event and the room will fill with groans. To a lot of people, team building feels like a corporate buzzword synonymous with forced participation, uncomfortable interaction and just a means to an end. Some think of it as purely a waste of time, taking them away from work they could be doing.
