Favorite Experiential Learning Activity: The Music of Leadership

The best Leaders find creative ways of sensing the character and flow of their followers, making subtle interventions that build community and call people to action. Music is a useful metaphor for leaders as they can view complex phenomena as musical attributes such as melody, harmony, dynamics, tempo, and rhythm. In this experiential activity I will engage participants as an improv orchestra, and explore bringing out the available talent and evening the playing field so that all can meaningfully participate. We'll also see the impact of adding a "conductor" and how interventions make for effective leadership in meeting the needs of players and audience. Note to participants: please bring something that makes a pleasing sound to the session.
