Give it a go, bro!

At a recent New Zealand Entrepreneurial Summit one of the top 5 ideas was to launch an attitude programme with the slogan 'Give it a go, bro!' with the aim of creating a sense of national pride and identity.

Anyone who has worked in improvisational theatre would recognise this as one the basic principles of improv - say yes!

"There are people who prefer to say YES, and there are people who prefer to say NO. Those who say YES are rewarded by the adventures they have, and those who say NO are rewarded by the safety they attain. There are far more NO sayers around than YES sayers, but you can train one type to behave like the other." Keith Johnstone

New Zealand needs more YES sayers!
