For those in leadership conducting is in a way part of their everyday life. The Conductor’s Perspective literally translates this into the world of the conductor and his orchestra.
The conductor is responsible for the performance of his team without actually contributing operatively to the outcome: The conductor is the only musician who does not play a single note. At the same time he is leading highly talented experts, with skills he himself does not possess, in a highly inflexible organizational structure.
All the more, it is a question of attitude, how the conductor sees and fills his role - regardless of the external conditions. How can he be effective and how does he contribute added value? How can he achieve that the musicians are making music together instead of playing their notes only?
Learning is sustainable if content is not only transmitted on an intellectual, but also on an emotional level. With the help of music this is precisely where The Conductor’s Perspective comes in.
The workshop teaches a constructive, flexible management concept based on vision, structure and trust, which shapes a powerful, team oriented corporate culture. In addition to the content the analogy of music also provides the emotional basis. Psychology has shown that what we learn in this way is better retained in the memory and also more easily recalled.
The bridge between sitting in the orchestra and your daily management routine is understood intuitively but is also consciously reflected on in the workshop.
