How can taking yourself less seriously result in a more productive collaborative team? Legendary improvisational comedian Neil Mullarkey joins Paul Boross to talk about the value of laughter in leadership. Neil shares his insights from years of comedy and draws parallels between the boardroom and the boards of the improv stage.
Humour encourages humanity. In this week’s episode Neil Mullarkey, Founder of The Comedy Store Players improv group, joins Paul Boross for a chat about when laughter is appropriate as a leader. Neil draws on years of improv experience to talk about how the best creative teams use humour to feel more human.
“If a team is laughing together, they’re going to be more creative, they’re going to be more resilient.”
Whether in comedy or business, when creative teams feel comfortable and safe to take the stage, try new material, and possibly fail, the results can be brilliant.
