All it takes is one dude to get the party started..then before long it becomes unstoppable !

Loving this clip as shared by John Stepper of the dude at a festival getting up and dancing on his own. After not long others join him and form a group then before you know it everyone piles in but notice others need to watch and get comfortable with the situation for themselves before they too are brave enough to join in…

For me this sums up really well how just one person, who is not afraid of what others think, is prepared to get up and act in a new way. It is then amazing to see how his actions bring about a chain reaction change in others.  Key thing for me is that he is taking what others will likely see as a risk only for it to cause others to follow suite and change their behaviours.

John says “That’s exactly the kind of movement I’m hoping for”. I couldn’t agree more in terms of my current focus and the challenge getting our people to embrace with social within the enterprise. We have some great pockets of those types of people  – who have got up and “danced.”  I may use that clip going forwards to help explain to other what I mean when I say not being afraid to work / act out load. Thanks John !
