Working Without a Script
Program length: 14:00

Hosted by entertainer and TV personality Keegan-Michael Key, Working Without a Script shows employees how to draw upon communication and improv techniques to help build leadership skills, facilitate communications, help teams function better, and improve individual behavior.


Help employees and managers to break their current “no, but” pattern and commit to the “yes, and” philosophy, the same philosophy that allows professional improvisational actors to create effectively on stage. “Yes, and” creates a positive environment for communication and active listening. It encourages adaptability and innovation. “Yes, and” also fosters open mindedness and generates trust.

“Yes, and” is not simply a method to find solutions to problems that may arise. Instead, it is a mind-set in which people are empowered to think on their feet and take risks. Working Without a Script is a funny, innovative training program that will help your organization and team members create a “yes, and” environment.

Comedy and business? I love it! The Second City showcases their improv talent in this short, fast-paced communication program to illustrate the importance of thinking on your feet and affirming and building one another's ideas to improve communication and increase creativity in business. I particularly like the "yes, and" philosophy and if that's the only thing viewers take away from this, the investment in this training will have been worthwhile.

  • Program is fun
  • Improv sections add interest and fun to the program but interrupts the flow sometimes.

It's humorous approach and silly vignettes culminate into a nicely blended Second City cocktail. What really makes this film stand apart is the humorous metaphors, such as a nun and a school boy trying to teach a more positive work attitude, and the use of the trapeze, and silly mustaches, to highlight the concept of trust and support within a team atmosphere. This film is 15 minutes long and goes straight to the point, making the 'Yes, and' a consistent theme throughout the humorous vignettes to support a serious and important concept, team work and building on ideas. Thanks for the preview
