About the Author

Kelly Leonard is the executive vice president of The Second City and the president of Second City Theatricals. He has worked at The Second City since 1988 and has overseen productions with such notable performers as Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler. Mr. Leonard cofounded Second City Theatricals, the division of the company that develops an eclectic array of live entertainment all over the world. He has fostered creative and business collaborations with Lyric Opera Chicago, Norwegian Cruise Line, Hubbard Street Dance and the Chicago Tribune, to name a few. Tom Yorton has been CEO of Second City Works, the b2b arm of The Second City, since 2002. Before joining The Second City family, Tom worked in advertising and marketing at agencies like Ogilvy, Grey, and Hal Riney before jumping to the client side, with stints as a marketing vice president at Sears and 3Com, where he actually hired Second City Works on a couple of occasions. Second City Works now does more than four hundred engagements a year, half with Fortune 1000 companies. Tom and his team are focused on refining The Second City's unique capabilities-creating funny short-form content and using improv to develop vital skills in businesspeople-to help companies communicate, collaborate, and innovate better in a web-first, social-everything world.

Reviews

"I know one of these guys, so at least half of this book is pretty good. Yes, And is for anyone looking to be more creative in their work and in their life." -- Stephen Colbert "If one phrase can capture the essence of the creative mindset then `yes, and' might just be it. If one book can inspire you to apply that creative mindset then Yes, And is most certainly that book." -- --Tim Brown, CEO of IDEO and author of Change By Design "Yes, And takes you behind the curtain of Second City to reveal deep insights and practical tips about how to lead a creative life. If you want to flourish in the new world of work, this book is an essential read." -- --Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell is Human and Drive "You'll learn, you'll laugh, and you'll immediately test out the rich set of practical exercises at the office-and the dinner table." -- --Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take "Accepting and building on what others have initiated, Yes, Andis the best teamwork advice for the stage or the boardroom." -- --Dick Costollo, CEO of Twitter "An excellent guide to the lessons that have bubbled up in Second City's improv workshops. It sounds crazy that a comedy troupe should have anything to say about how you should lead your life. Trust me: it isn't." -- Vanity Fair
