“If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.” — Ken Robinson

Learning to embrace failure by using mistakes to trigger creativity is just one powerful example of how improv exercises can help you become a better professional.

As UX practitioners, we need to cultivate a number of soft skills on a daily basis. Amongst others: empathy and deep listening, the ability to work effectively within a group, lateral thinking, storytelling and public speaking.

In improv theatre, actors need to manage the unexpected, working together to create a show without a script. The techniques they use are very valuable for tackling some of the skills we need to improve.
