Undoing Your Social Training and Creative Inhibitions in Five Minutes

1,391

Published on

Our culture inculcates several behaviors that harm creative, entrepreneurial people: we're taught to avoid conflict and real, open honesty with one another, and we're taught to fear failure. This may work for creating a polite, civil society, but it doesn't serve the individual who is trying to make a difference. But there's hope! Improv theater actors have devised many techniques for overcoming these tendencies which enables them to create inventive stories extemporaneously. I share ways to combat creative inhibitions gleaned from six years of teaching and performing improv theater.
