Kupe Kupersmith: “Improv is Common Sense but not Common Practice”

After testing the waters of accounting and standup comedy, Kupe Kupersmith of B2T Training finally found his calling by combining two of his passions: improv and helping teams be better. As with improv, life has no scripts: “you have to adapt… and be a good listener,” says Kupe. When you provide an environment for good, positive communication, the fun happens naturally! Some key skills for using improv in teams: engaged listening and keeping an open mind. One of Kupe’s favorite scripts is “Yes, and…” which is geared toward building constructive, rather than destructive, communication.
