I came across this great video talk on Garr Reynolds site (he is a graphic designer) It has applications in many areas.The question it asks are : As a leader — in business, education, or design — how much control do you need? How much can you give up?
Is control even the right word? Is it possible to lead without leading?
Here is a great TED talk that will get you thinking that has applications for leaders of all types. Former conductor Itay Talgam today runs workshops to help people develop a musician's sense of collaboration, and a conductor's sense of leadership.
In this excellent talk at TED Oxford, Itay touches on the art of creating perfect harmony without saying a word by showing the unique styles of six great 20th-century conductors.
Apart from the content of this presentation the delivery and smooth use of video clips to illustrate his points is a good example of how to connect with an audience and get them to think differently.
Before you have a look you may like to ponder on this................
"There's too much of an attempt, it seems to me, to think in terms of controlling man, rather than freeing him. Of defining him rather than letting him go. And it's part of the whole ideology of this age, which is power-mad." -- Arthur Miller
