Sometimes we are so immersed in the workings of our organization that we take for granted things that others may find special or intriguing. For example, shipping an elephant from Africa may be routine for zookeepers, but those at the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha recognized that the rest of us may find the process interesting.
The Zoo made a display of the elephant shipping container and turned it into a fun and educational opportunity. In addition to placards telling the story of the process, guests were allowed to climb inside the container and gain a perspective of the vast size of the elephants.
What do you have in your organization that is ordinary to you but could become extraordinary to someone else?
