From CEO to Maestro Creative Leadership: Learning from the Maestros
Conductors have a unique role in the orchestra; they are the only members that do not make any sound, yet they are the ones responsible for creating order out of chaos in the form of a high artistic quality in the blend of musicians playing a group of different instruments. How do they make it happen? It takes working with a team of highly-skilled professionals needing to coordinate and adapt themselves to each other to create a cohesive, ordered artistic unit of highly-skilled professionals. Conductors are also known as Maestros, meaning “teacher.” Maestros must be visionary and inspirational leaders, as well as teachers and coaches capable of developing their teams to achieve perfection.
Business leaders have a lot in common with the maestro leading the orchestra, especially when it comes to the challenges they face. They must also foster harmony in their businesses, letting a diverse group of talents come together to carry out their vision. To succeed as the leader of a business or an orchestra, one needs skills such as motivation, technical knowledge, passion, strategic planning, curiosity, introspection, and an understanding of individuals.
