Leadership Lessons from an Orchestra Conductor

One of the most obvious forms of leadership, one that is judged immediately based on the performance that is generated from the team there and then, is that of the conductor of an orchestra.


Even here at WPP, the internal senior leadership course is called Maestro, and the take home gift is a conductor’s baton, the implication being that as a qualified maestro leader, you are able to conduct your team to generate results while allowing the individual freedom they require and, indeed, the team requires.

This great video of Itay Talgam (who started the Maestro programme and has conducted and recorded with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra) nicely brings to life his perspective of the relevance of community for both the orchestra and the work environments

Great stuff, and even better to see it brought to life in such an entertaining way.

    One thing I have actually noticed is that there are plenty
    of fallacies regarding the financial institutions intentions if
    talking about property foreclosure. One misconception in particular is
    the bank needs to have your house. The financial institution
    wants your hard earned money, not your home. They want the amount of money they
    loaned you along with interest. Staying away from the bank will undoubtedly draw some sort
    of foreclosed conclusion. Thanks for your posting.
