Professional improviser, coach and comedian Katie Goodman

We can all be radical geniuses by embracing a mindset of flexibility and resilience.

This season I’m introducing you to the radical geniuses who are reshaping the systems as we know them. Katie Goodman is a professional improviser and a comedian. Over the last twenty years her team has taught about 10,000 people from individuals to corporate groups how to use the tools of improv comedy in everyday life. Today, we’ll talk about how the powers of imagination, collaboration and “yes, and” can give us a new way of responding to problems the world throws at us.
