Leadership that Listens


Jazz Musicians...Listening“The most important thing I look for in a musician is whether he knows how to listen.”
~ Duke Ellington

One of the reasons Drum Cafe West’s team building programs are so wildly effective is because music and rhythm require a true team effort that keenly implements the necessity to really listen to one another and understand how “my” contribution to this endeavor can complement “your” contribution. The evolution of corporate leadership is morphing into a model of listening and honoring the unique gifts and talents of each and every staff member; and orchestrating the symphony from those gifts as a whole.

The following article beautifully illustrates this through the analogy of jazz and business. It’s a short read and the food for thought is immensely valuable as today’s businesses strive to achieve and maintain lasting success in an ever-changing market.
