The Second City has launched the careers of celebrated comic performers such as Tina Fey and Stephen Colbert and produced award-winning content.

Players master an ability to cocreate in ensembles using philosophies that celebrate a "yes, and" approach.

It's not just about humor in the workplace (although that, too, is vital) but how to work as a truly collaborative team and learning to stop fearing failure. The new book Yes, And: How Improvisation Reverses "No, But" Thinking and Improves Creativity and Collaboration - Lessons from The Second City, coauthored by Tom Yorton and Kelly Leonard, incorporates lessons from the legendary improvisational theater troupe into business best practices.
