Joe Keefe says, “Good humor means good business” and I have to say I agree. Keefe, co-founder and executive producer of Second City Communications share his thoughts on business and improv in the FastCompany article Stage Coaches by Zoe Barton.
Some of the key points include:
- “Businesspeople need to learn to open themselves up to a new idea fully, vulnerably, patiently, and accurately.”
- “A player, whether on the business stage or the theater stage, must accept her role before she can own it.”
- “Creativity is about emotion. It’s not about logic.”
