What does improvisation theater have to do with ideation?

On the topic of not putting down other people's ideas, there is a very powerful concept in improv theater that is phenomenally effective in helping people get out of their negative zone and get into a high-energy constructive zone: the concept of "yes, and". 

Dave Morris has a great TED talk titled "The way of improvisation" about this concept - we highly recommend that all teams who have to get together in ideation sessions watch it beforehand, to set expectations for everyone to get into a constructive mindset.
