FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CoPeace Will Provide a Variety of Impact and Business Services to
Help ExperienceYes Enter the Sports Market
DENVER (Date) – CoPeace, an impact investing and services company, announced today a strategic services agreement to provide ExperienceYes, an improv mindset consulting company, a variety of impact and business services through its CoPeace Sports subsidiary.
ExperienceYes is an innovative company that uses the tools and techniques of the improv mindset to improve leadership skills, engage free flowing creativity, increase team
productivity, and develop healthy business cultures.
“I was really excited when ExperienceYes approached CoPeace,” said Craig Jonas,
CEO/Founder of CoPeace, and a former college conference basketball coach of the year.
“I’ve had the opportunity to sit through sessions with ExperienceYes. Not only did I see my own creativity improve, I also quickly saw how this program could positively impact sports teams. I’m confident the ExperienceYes program can give a sports program a significant edge.”
ExperienceYes and CoPeace have formed a strategic alliance to build and implement an “integrated improv and creativity” coaching program for the sports industry. ExperienceYes has had great success in the business world with its programming and sees a tremendous opportunity to positively impact the world of sports.
“Improv has some huge advantages when it comes to teams, whether in business or sports” said Gail Montgomery, CEO and Co-Founder of ExperienceYes. “Not only does it significantly increase team collaboration, cohesion and trust, but there’s also been new research that illustrates how an improviser’s brain can see the world in a very different, very creative way.”
The new program targeting sports teams is designed to be an integral part of a team’s wholistic coaching process, from pre-season planning and workouts through the regular season.
The ExperienceYes process focuses on four core rules of improv: 1) Yes, and …; 2) Listen with the intent to serve; 3) Support your teammates at all costs; and 4) Trust your instincts. The new sport program will include a variety of creativity-improvement activities.
“I think fundamentally we’ve always known that creativity matters a lot in sports,” said Bruce Montgomery, President and Co-Founder of ExperienceYes. “To our knowledge, however, this will be the first time where creativity is not just the by-product of something else. It’s a real skill, a skill that can be effectively developed within all sports teams and one that has a tremendous impact on winning.”
