The theory behind successful improvisation is that the desire to contribute combined with the ability to connect creates the ability to create, and that holds true for teams and partnerships of all kinds. And research shows that the ability to connect with other people, to participate in different kinds of groups is key to recovering from mental or physical illness, life satisfaction and longevity. Navigating the twists, turns and changes that life presents is one of the side benefits of learning how to improvise through which we can also become more open to new ideas, communicate effectively and operate from their highest intelligence when under stress. The tools and techniques learned through Applied Improvisation games and exercises strengthen partnerships of all kinds, and generate a positive, supportive emotional atmosphere that is conducive to problem-solving and creative thinking.
