Talent and Leadership

Leadership keynote program with North WoodAs a leader of many professional violin sections, I believe I have learned the secrets of gaining peoples trust, which in turn allows me to lead them.

The job of a concertmaster is to lead the violin section to play together, play in tune and to follow phrasings and bowings.  This program will help you understand how to walk the thin line between showing strength and being abusive. The bottom line is that you will get the best results if people like you and trust you.  The trick is knowing how to accomplish this.

Through story telling and musical examples, I will help you learn how to get your employees to trust you and follow you without the need of force or anger.
