Description du produit

Revue de presse

“I know one of these guys, so at least half of this book is pretty good. Yes, And is for anyone looking to be more creative in their work and in their life.” (Stephen Colbert)

“If one phrase can capture the essence of the creative mindset then ‘yes, and’ might just be it. If one book can inspire you to apply that creative mindset then Yes, And is most certainly that book.” (--Tim Brown, CEO of IDEO and author of Change By Design)

“Yes, And takes you behind the curtain of Second City to reveal deep insights and practical tips about how to lead a creative life. If you want to flourish in the new world of work, this book is an essential read.” (--Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell is Human and Drive)

“You’ll learn, you’ll laugh, and you’ll immediately test out the rich set of practical exercises at the office-and the dinner table.” (--Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take)

“Accepting and building on what others have initiated, Yes, Andis the best teamwork advice for the stage or the boardroom.” (--Dick Costollo, CEO of Twitter)

“An excellent guide to the lessons that have bubbled up in Second City’s improv workshops. It sounds crazy that a comedy troupe should have anything to say about how you should lead your life. Trust me: it isn’t.” (Vanity Fair)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Executives from The Second City—the world’s premier comedy theater and school of improvisation—reveal improvisational techniques that can help any organization develop innovators, encourage adaptable leaders, and build transformational businesses.

For more than fifty years, The Second City comedy theater in Chicago has been a training ground for some of the best comic minds in the industry—including John Belushi, Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, Mike Myers, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, and Tina Fey. But it also provides one-of-a-kind leadership training to cutting-edge companies, nonprofits, and public sector organizations—all aimed at increasing creativity, collaboration, and teamwork.

The rules for leadership and teamwork have changed, and the skills that got professionals ahead a generation ago don’t work anymore. Now The Second City provides a new toolkit individuals and organizations can use to thrive in a world increasingly shaped by speed, social communication, and decentralization. Based on eight principles of improvisation, Yes, And helps to develop these skills and foster them in high-potential leaders and their teams, including: 

  • Mastering the ability to co-create in an ensemble
  • Fostering a “yes, and” approach to work
  • Embracing failure to accelerate high performance
  • Leading by listening and by learning to follow
  • Innovating by making something out of nothing

Yes, And is a must-read for professionals and organizations, helping to develop the invaluable leadership skills needed to succeed today.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Grating tone and not enough support for the material 15 août 2015
Par Kennard Alton - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
As others have commented the book has a very heavy self congratulatory tone. I made it about 70% of the way through the book before I'd had my fill and the "aren't we great" message continued throughout. Even when discussing the times Second City screwed up the author somehow made it sound that they were brilliant anyway.

The book could have used a LOT more examples. Way too often it describes how some technique is really helpful applied to a business and then doesn't show us an instance of when and how it helped. There are some examples in the book, but maybe 20% of what you'd want in order to actually understand and be convinced by the material they present.

If you are laughing at the idea that the Second City folks could right a serious book about leadership then you REALLY need to read this book.

I bought this book on a whim. I liked second city and the title grabbed me, because as a peacebuilder, I focus on both-and rather than either-or solutions, so Yes, And sort of struck a chord.

What I realized as I read the book that improv and problem solving have a lot in common wherever they occur. Their tools resonate with what works for my colleagues on the ground--work in teams (whoops, I mean ensembles), listen well, build on and support what others are say, and most of all, yes-and the person you are working with. Always take what s/he is saying AND build on it. Expand the frame of the discussion.

You'll probably get somewhere and have some fun getting there.

I was reading the book and smiling when the CEO of the group I work for came in. Melanie and I are both Jewish and I was reading about Jewsical the Musical which got us laughing more than it did Second City audiences.

Then, I explained why I was reading the book, and we both simultaneously decided that we should get the Second City folks to do a workshop at the Alliance for Peacebuilding's next annual conference so that our idiot savant improv artists could get some serious training (hopefully in some not so serious ways) in doing what they already do better.

If only we could afford them.

The book was very OK. Not a lot of take aways. Could have incorporated a higher level of humor.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good ground work. 27 août 2015
Par Michael MacDonald - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Great explanation of the benefits of improv, with some tips and case studies, but I didn't gain enough confidence from my reading of it to implement the strategies. Might the ground-work for more? I'm glad I read it, but I wasn't blown away by its insights. Great reminders, but not enough action points to put into action with "gusto".
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not a bad read 19 juillet 2016
Par John Fitch - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I love the concept of "Yes, And..." as a means of building collaborative teams. The book has a tendency to oversimplify things with anecdotes ("We did this and got this desirable result...") that can lead a reader to suspect that it's not the "what but the "who" who is doing it.

Nevertheless, the reader is left with the sense of how teams and their leaders bake the cake together and learn some concepts on how to have everyone play nice together in the kitchen.
