The Second City’s Kelly Leonard and Tom Yorton have spent decades helping businesses succeed by using the principles of improvisation. Their work has helped countless companies elevate strategy and improve teamwork, and it all starts with the deceptively ordinary phrase, “yes, and.” Joined by Chicago Tribune chief theater critic and Sunday columnist Chris Jones, Leonard and Yorton will discuss their experiences in helping unleash creativity in the corporate setting as well as their new book, “Yes, And: How Improvisation Reverses ‘No, But’ Thinking and Improves Creativity and Collaboration.”
Audience Q&A and a book signing will follow the discussion and copies of "Yes, And" will be available for purchase.
