Got Your Back – Lateral Lessons Ep 02

In improv theater, making one statement behind the curtain can add safety and trust to the entire cast. "I've got your back" will connect the performers and sets the stage for a powerful show.


Here's link to a variation on that game: http://improvencyclopedia.org/games/Word_at_a_Time_Story.html

Takeaways:


  • You've got my back

    Imagine the comfort that comes with the knowledge that someone is there for you and with you when you’re performing outside of your comfort zone.

  • Everyone's back is covered

    Of particular importance in team settings, if someone slips up, the team knows that someone else will step in and cover the wrinkle.

  • I've got YOUR back

    Such a simple declaration, the awareness and connectedness will allow all team members and/or partners to play full out.

Every single person will know that, no matter what happens on stage, we’re in this together. If you don’t know what you’re going to say, know that I’ll cover for you, don’t worry, I’ve got your backKymberlee
