The science of improvisation

Firstly, a quick apology to followers of my blog for a lack of postings in the last month - a combination of preparing some exciting work packages on behaviour change for sustainability and climate for the Welsh Assembly, then catching up on some important family time shifted priorities for a while.

Back in the saddle now, it's great to start again with this lovely video sent by colleague Belina Raffy, who I have the pleasure of working with on organisation development and innovation projects. It's all, as Alan Alda says, about the animation that we bring, and having the courage to dive in deep without a script - listening to our hearts, not our heads.

This looks like a lot of fun! I participated in something similar this summer. Even if you are not an actor, these kinds of improv activities do wonders for improving confidence and the ability to "wing it" in all types of settings. I think just about everybody could learn a thing or two by improvising.

Scott - have a look at the Applied Improv Network (AIN) if you haven't come across it before - practitioners across the world connecting ideas to make change.
