Have you ever thought of leading others as a conductor?
For a concert or musical to be performed correctly, someone has to take responsibility for giving gestures that enable all the musicians to know when to start playing. The conductor must be extremely familiar with all the musical pieces selected for the performance. While each musician may only rehearse part of a musical score, the conductor must learn the entire work. The conductor is much like a traffic cop. He or she must know exactly when each instrument should start and stop in the musical highway.
I was recently introduced to a video that taught me about a conductor from Israel. Itay Talgam is that conductor and consultant. In the video below he teaches what a conductor faces as a leadership challenge: "creating perfect harmony without saying a word."
This is one of the best videos that I have ever seen on how to be a strong leader.
Itay Talgam shares the unique styles of six great conductors. His goal in this video is to help everyday people develop a musician's sense of collaboration and working together, and to understand a conductor's unique ability of leadership.
After ten years as a conductor in his native homeland of Israel, Itay has created a career in helping people develop their skills in the business world.
