For those in leadership conducting in a figurative sense is part of their everyday life. The Conductor’s Perspective shows how this literally translates into the world of conductors and their orchestra.
Conductors are responsible for the performance of their team without actually contributing operatively to the outcome: It’s the only musician who does not play a single note. At the same time, they are leading highly talented experts with skills they themselves do not possess, trapped in a quite inflexible organizational structure.
Orchestras are well able to play together even without a conductor. Therefore, giving the upbeat and beating time is not at the core of the conductor’s duty. But then what is it? What is the conductor’s role in this constellation? What’s the added value? And what does it mean to make music instead of playing notes?
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.
