Sing while you work

October 8, 2012

Have you been watching ‘The Choir: Sing While You Work’ with Gareth Malone, the guy that worked with the army wives? He’s currently travelling around the country, gathering people from large and diverse organisations to audition for and be part of a choir that will represent their organisation in a televised singing competition. This is a fantastic example of bringing people together at all levels that would otherwise never have met, giving them a chance to interact as people and a common purpose.

There are some great clips on Youtube, such as an employee from the Royal Mail talking about ‘management being people’ that demonstrate the power the choir is having in breaking down barriers – be they physical (e.g. landside versus airside at Manchester Airport) or hierarchical (e.g. a surgeon singing alongside a porter at Lewisham Hospital). True engagement is about having intent, process and heart and it doesn’t get much better than this!
