Blog > Improv principles for facilitators in haiku

November 11, 2008

I’m a bit of a fan of haiku – helps me say what I want to say with brevity and clarity. So here’s my take on some of the key improv principles for facilitators in haiku.

Accept offers, say
Yes! And… be open to the
ideas of others.

Be average. Be
obvious – and then see how
you soar, and excel!

Working with another?
Look after your partner well,
And you’ll both look good.

Just jump in. Go on.
Start anywhere. Begin
and be surprised.

Do something – move your
body. Listen, observe and
trust yourself. Go on!

Made a mistake? Bow…
And then try something else new.
It’s the only way.

What if? What if? What…
Just let go of the what ifs
And be present too.
