News, comments, resources, and more for nonprofits.
Just ONEthing - Oct 2013
Every month, we learn much from the participants and presenters we meet at ONEplace. In Just ONEthing… we highlight an insight gained during the past month from our nonprofit community and its partners.
This months’ insight comes from Dann Sytsma and Brian Lam (aka, Improv Effects) who led our Manage by Improvisation workshop. Through a series of improv games and exercises we learned the power of:
- affirming what the other person says and then adding to it
- making strong choices in the moment
- having fun
One participant emailed us two days after the workshop to add to comments made on the evaluation. The participant wrote: “The improv practices we learned are highly applicable to my job, particularly to the collaborative aspects of the work I do.”
ONEplace offers the improv workshop again on January 23, 2014. Registrations open in late November.
