Yes, And...

In standup comedy, one of the learned skills is entering during someone else’s monologue. That can mark the end of a routine, or using more firepower with dual monologues.

I attended a class for comics and the most valuable thing I learned was that when entering someone else’s performance, the correct thing to say before launching is

“Yes, And…”

That phrase has since worked really well for me in many different types of meetings.

Try it.
