Opening Keynote General Session: Starting at Yes: Empathy, Agreement, and Collaboration for Progress
October 2 @ 9:50 am - 11:15 am
Starting at ‘no’ and getting stuck is easy, so how do we find paths to ‘yes’? In this keynote address, we’ll explore why organizations and communities so easily find themselves mired in conflict and what unique insights and lessons improv theater has to offer in helping make the shift toward building connections and collaboration. Beyond theory, we’ll also review and rehearse concrete ways you can help the groups you work with move out of habitual conflict and lean into the curiosity, empathy, and bravery required for agreement and change.
