Robert Van Arlen has trained thousands of mangers on the discipline behind music performance. Musicians will wait for the cue from the conductor to wholeheartedly play their section of the musical piece. They play with passion, because they understand that they are part of an orchestra, and every instrument counts towards creating a masterful performance. What would change for you as a manager, if you could lead like a conductor? In this program, managers learn how to incorporate the concepts of Melody, Harmony and Rhythm, along with the Pillars in Building and Inspirational Community as a paradigm for personal & team growth. Melody expresses the mission & vision, and how resonance impacts both internal & external stakeholders. Harmony is the facilitation of teamwork, which includes standards of performance and excellence. Rhythm illustrates the tempo of organizational performance, and the ability for leaders to execute consistency in growth. Managers learn how to effectively orchestrate excellence and change within their organization. This training session can be delivered in 3 hours or in a full day format.
