There's an art installation going on in New York City -- Sing for Hope -- for the next two weeks where 60 pianos are on street corners and in city parks, inviting people to sit and play. The stories of how people are lured to the possibility of the pianos, and then sitting down and playing their favorite piece, some basics like "Chopsticks," some Broadway hits, and some serious classical works.
Imagine if companies were to do a similar installation. Maybe around strategic planning time? Or the end of the fiscal year when the tension is stultifying? The image of what might be possible in a different approach to employee engagement makes me smile thinking about the possibilities.
What other unusual engagement approaches might wake people up?
FYI: here's a link
to the New York Times article about the piano art installation. I'm going to check it out this weekend with teenagers in tow.
