Applied Improv – Look Good by making others Look Good

makeotherslookgoodBy Jon Trevor

Stepping out on stage in front of an audience, without a script or even an inkling of an idea of what is going to happen next, is daunting, even to the most experienced improviser.
The only sure route to success in this situation, is that everyone follows the golden Improv rule “Make others look good”.  Every member of an improv troupe is focussed on making their partners look good, all the time.  That way everyone can contribute energetically, confident there will always be support,  the team will keep them safe, and any mistakes will be mended almost imperceptibly.
Does your workplace encourage that attitude?  Are your team members eager to shine, or eager to make each other shine, and so benefit the entire team.
