Kelly Leonard builds off the improvisation-based principles from his bestselling book "Yes, And," to discuss a new initiative he co-leads with the Center for Decision Research at the Booth School of Business at The University of Chicago. The Second Science Project looks at behavioral science through the lens of improvisation. Kelly will talk about the insights that have come from this partnership and talk about the key areas where evidence-based science meets improvisational pedagogy. Kelly will also toss in a few stories of some of the famous figures he's worked with in his 30+ career at The Second City.
