#63 Say ‘Yes, And . . . ‘, with Avish Parashar

Avoiding the “Yes but . . .” trap is the theme of today’s episode with communication expert, Avish Parashar, author of, “Say ‘Yes, And!’: 2 Little Words That Will Transform Your Career, Organization, and Life!”

This conversation helps to figure out where you have been saying, “Yes, but . . .” and how you can transform your results by switching to “Yes, and . . .”


Avish Parashar fell so much in love with improv – improvisational theatre or comedy on the spot – while studying for his Bachelor Degree in computer science at University of Pennsylvania, that after graduating, apart from working as a computer programmer in Chase Manhattan bank for a time, he formed Polywumpus Improv Comedy, performing around Philadelphia for years.

Avish progressed to speaking and workplace training, using improv comedy as a tool to teach business skills of creativity, innovation and adaptability. A past chapter President of National Speakers Association, Avish is author of 2 books, “Improvise to Success!” and “Say Yes And!”.
