"I first encountered the YES/AND mentality in childhood. We all did. It's on the playground. You'll never see a better example of it than children playing together for hours in a park only to be asked by their parents later, 'What's your new friend's name?' A shrug followed by 'I don't know' is often the reply. This is because both parties utterly accepted one another… It creates comfortability in the chaos. We need it organizationally and creatively and socially now more than ever before."
