Using improvisation to improve teams

I have taken part in a number of improvisation classes and I am always amazed at how fast the facilitators can build trust within the room. Within the first class we can already see groups of people self organising and showing signs of genuine improvement, while enjoying the experience. 

I feel we have plenty to learn from the world of improvised acting, therefore I invited Paul Z Jackson, President of the Applied Improvisation Network, to come and give us a workshop where we can share some of the experiences of improvisation.  

In this practical session, Paul Z Jackson shares secrets of improvisation and explores the deep connection with Agile.

    Good session tonight. Great fun and learned some useful exercises which can be applied with our respective teams.
    Thanks to Paul for delivering it, and to Daryn, Christian and Zulkhe for organising and hosting.

    Interested, but sadly won't be able to make this one as it clashes with the Comms Dojo

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
