Improviser/storyteller Dave Morris delivers a Tedx Talk on the 7 steps of improvisation and how they can apply to life with his technique, “The Way of Improvisation”.

Dave Morris is a speaker, teacher, storyteller and improviser. He has his own periodical website called The Way of Improvisation where he has created a guide to using improvisation techniques to improve everyday life. Morris writes, “improvisation is not just a thing, but a way of thinking, a way of living, a way of being.”

Morris explains his theory as he delivers a Tedx Talk to a group of people. Watch below:

The 7 main concepts of his theory are:the way of improvisation
1. Play
2. Let yourself fail
3. Listen
4. Say yes
5. Say and
6. Play the game
7. Relax and have fun

Like Dave, we know that improvisation is a hugely important skill to have in order to be successful at work and create bonds with coworkers. Need more proof? Check out the testimonials from our happy clients who participated in TeamProv.
