Dan Attfield & Paul Hammond Want to Make You Look Awesome Using Improv Comedy at Agile2016

Dan Attfield and Paul Hammond discovered that the rules of improv comedy are the polar opposite of Patrick Lencioni’s “Five Dysfunctions of a Team.” For example, the first dysfunction is Absense of Trust, but in an effective team, you encourage the Presence of Trust. The duo walked Agile Amped through a series of exercises that they used in their session “The Five Dysfunctions of an Improvised Comedy Group”–which started out right with a blackout disco with Beyonce blaring on the speakers. In the end, Dan and Paul have one goal: getting people to change their egocentric views to one that focuses on making others look awesome.
