Monday Start-Up: Liven Up Those Work Meetings with a Flash Mob

I came across a video of a flash mob bombarding an engineering class singing the song, “One Test More”, a spoof off of the Les Miserables song, “One Day More”. The mob was organized by the professor during the class’s first test. I absolutely loved this! It wasn’t just because I thought it was fun and I personally love Les Miserables, but it was a great move from the professor in getting the students at ease and lightening the mood of the classroom.

When there is a test, or a big meeting, or another event where there is stress involved or the predetermined expectation that you will “just have to get through it”, it’s difficult to break that mentality. After watching this video, I did a quick search to see if there is a similar example of an office meeting being interrupted by a flash mob. It didn’t take me too long to find this:

It’s inventive, it’s creative, and it definitely lightens up an office meeting! This definitely may be something to think about for your next corporate-wide meeting.
