Staying Creative

In addition to being a designer and product consultant, I also act in stage and film productions. I am trained in the Meisner acting method and improvisation. Improvisation is a great skill during workshops, training, and for design thinking. The first rule of improvisation is "Yes, and..." What might we make if we think creativity with a team rather than shutting down ideas before they can be fully formed.
