Building on the Ideas of Others

5.0
1 rating(s)

Description

Improvisational comedy has developed a rule of thinking which is called “Yes, and ….” The idea is that you accept what is said and then you add your own thoughts. The “yes” is confirming the other speaker while the “and” is adding your own contribution. Together, you are building an idea or set of ideas. This process is different from what we often hear in a discussion (“yes, but…”) which is a negating response that is more likely to create an environment of competition rather than collaboration.


Learning Goals

  • Develop the practice of listening and affirming what is heard rather than negating others.

  • Practice listening for ideas or arguments that can be built upon through collaborative discussion.


Practice Time: 40 minutes
