David Ahearn (Author & Co-founder, Four Day Weekend)
David Ahearn explains his philosophy of “yes, and” which is based on improvisational techniques used in the theater and focus on the concepts of collaboration, adaptability, and co-creation. According to Ahearn, the philosophy starts with collaborating as a group on personal ideas that comes from listening to, respecting, and honoring individual ideas and suggestions. He shares his belief that human’s natural state is cooperation, not competition. Ahearn discusses how this type of cooperation is the underpinning of all successful improvisation.
