ABOUT IMPROV COLLAB FOUNDER
HEATHER SMITH LUTKIN
Collaboration & Creativity & Communication
These are my passions. They infuse all that I do.
COLLABORATION. Join a team, build a collab, keep finding circles.
Life is a team sport, and going it alone is never as fun nor as efficient and productive as doing it with teammates. Where there are no teams, I create them using the tenets of Improv Comedy – Say Yes AND, Don’t push your agenda, Listen with your heart.
CREATIVITY. Survival is a creative endeavor.
Creativity is an approach to life. If you know you are creative you can face anything – you’ll figure it out. And all of us are creative, we just need to remind ourselves.
COMMUNICATION. Let Positivity and Authenticity lead.
Communication is how we connect. My approach is based on authenticity. None of us is perfect in our daily communication. Yet all of us can strive to be honest and supportive - to take a Yes And approach to how we share and communicate.
BONUS: My 15+ years as a professional Dog Trainer has shown me the power of positive reinforcement - in ALL communication. Tricks from training dogs also infuse all I do as a communication advisor, collaborator, producer, director, and coach.
