TEDx Talk: Follow the Fear

To be willing to take creative risks at work that lead to meaningful innovation, we need to feel connected and safe. Unfortunately, spreadsheets and zoom calls don’t naturally foster encouraging environments.

Comedy improvisers follow a few principles that enable them to instantly build rapport and trust with each other and their audiences. What brilliance could we achieve if we adopted these rules in the corporate world?

Tim Washer spent 20 years at IBM, Cisco and Interpublic Group while moonlighting on SNL, Conan O’Brien and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and studying improv under Amy Poehler. Tim helps organizations rebuild innovative and leadership cultures.
