An ethnomusicologist will speak with participants about engaging difference, sparking radical cultural collaboration, and passion-driven learning to create a more inclusive environment.
Session 3: Conductor Experience – Enables Collaboration
Your leaders will discover how conducting is, despite its appearance, a highly collaborative act of leadership. It’s a powerful exercise in promoting an inclusive environment and aligning very different musicians or leaders in different silos, to come together in a virtuoso performance.
Session 4: Drum Experience – Extends Influence
This interactive drumming experience begins with non-verbal communication. Music is a universal language, that allows us to break down barriers and transcend the difference among us as individuals. In Africa and in many other cultures around the world, drumming has been used for centuries to bring people together. A celebration of diversity, contribution, and leadership.
Session 5: Songwriter Experience – Empowers Others
Collaboration is a shared commitment. Participants will identify the behaviors and the environment that makes collaboration successful. Then they will work with a Grammy award-winning songwriter to generate ideas, support one another, and create an environment of psychological safety as they collaborate.
