Creative Teamwork -- "Freezing" 200 agents in the busiest train station in the world

An organization known as Improv Everywhere staged one of the coolest examples of teamwork I've ever seen.

From the organization's website:

On a cold Saturday in New York City, the world’s largest train station came to a sudden halt. Over 200 Improv Everywhere Agents froze in place at the exact same second for five minutes in the Main Concourse of Grand Central Station. Over 500,000 people rush through Grand Central every day, but today, things slowed down just a bit as commuters and tourists alike stopped to notice what was happening around them.

Watch the video clip below.  It's truly amazing and wonderful.

The leaders involved in this cool stunt are able to pull it off because they use a Coach Approach to leadership.  You can learn these skills in the IATF Leader As Coach Fast Track Program so you can work miracles with your team.

I watched this clip and thought it was great and it was interesting to hear the comments from people. I don't know what my reaction would have been if I witnessed this, probably would have panicked a bit. would like to have heard more comments from the people.
