Guest blog by Sonja Stetzler, MA, CPC
I met Sonja a little over a year ago, and when she told me about her use of improvisation in the workplace I was fascinated. How is that possible I thought – it’s just that silly stuff they do on Whose Line is it Anyway.
As Sonja explained more, I realized it is so much more than that. And as someone who cares deeply about creating cultures where people can win together and create great results, I wanted to learn more. The next month I took an improv class.
In doing so I found that the principles of improv really do apply to creating great work environments. That led me to ask Sonja to write this blog post. I found what she said to be spot on with my experience in working with teams. Hope you find her message to be valuable too.
