THE CONDUCTOR'S PERSPECTIVE - ANALOGY

 

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?

FORMATS

Conduction Workshop for manger

Topic „Collaboration“

 

  • Lecture with brass quintet: This lecture focuses on the topic of "Teaming”. Together with five brass players you experience what makes a good team, which typical obstacles prevent teamwork and how to come to a great performance. – Duration approx. 60min

  • Keynote „Artists vs. Managers“: The daily challenges that arise in cultural institutions between artists and non-artists with their differing needs are also found in many service industries. Clinics, law firms, consulting companies, tourism companies and many others experience an imbalance between their customer-oriented groups of employees and those not directly dealing with customers. Frequent causes are sensory deprivation, valency decline and goal duality (arts vs. economics). This lecture shows how to face these challenges in order to achieve a corporate culture of appreciation and constructive, effective cooperation.

 

 

Topic „Leadership“

 

  • Workshop with live orchestra: Become part of a professional orchestra without playing an instrument yourself. Seated on the stage among the musicians, experiencing close up the difference between excellent and mediocre leadership. You observe what it means to lead without making a sound. You find out how the conductor turns notes into music with few words only. You learn how leadership functions either as an observer or from the podium with the conductor’s baton in your hand. An interactive reflection between the conductor, musicians and participants. – Duration approx. 2h

  • Keynote with Videos: Experience an entertaining lecture without live orchestra, but with illustrating videos of different conductors at work and interactive experiments with the participants. Listen to fascinating stories and analyze the impact of famous conductors on the screen. You will get major insights from the analogy, without having to engage an entire orchestra. – Duration approx. 30-120min (can also be combined with orchestra workshop)

WHY MUSIC

 

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.
