The Musicality of Leaders and Teams

The melody of leadership and teams.

What is your leadership song style?

Have you ever considered that leadership has a musicality to it? My latest Smartblog on Leadership article explores how successful leadership messages contain the three key elements of music.

It occurs to me that you could also look at teams through the “musicality” filter.

Melody – the key theme for the team; its purpose

Harmony – the ways in which team members support one another

Rhythm – the pace required for the team’s mission to succeed

I’d like to know – what connections do you see to leadership, teams and music?

Steve,

Ah, yes, it makes sense that a music man such as you would comment on this post 🙂

Your statement that music “allows us to be unique and yet ties us together” is an excellent observation and so true when it comes to leading teams. Thanks so much for your contribution to The People Equation!
