How to Fail Cheerfully
Failure is not just a terrific way to learn and grow. It is also a primary source of creativity and inspiration. But only if you are open to it. This workshop explores the principles and techniques from improvisational theater that apply to all endeavors requiring creativity and/or collaboration.

Dan Klein, ’90, is a lecturer in theater and performance studies and at the Graduate School of Business, and a teacher at the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design at Stanford. His teaching taps into improvisation, design thinking and high-performance communication to help adults access their childlike creative reserves. A longtime improv instructor of beginning and advanced improvisation, he has helped create student groups including the Robber Barons (original sketch comedy), the Flying Treehouse (children’s theater) and Stanford Improvisors, an improv troupe that has performed on campus and in the community for more than 20 years.
