Adopting a Jazz Mindset for Strategic Execution and Leadership
How Jazz Musicians Can Influence Project Managers
How can musicians inspire a business environment? Drawing inspiration from jazz leaders can help you shift focus from a rule-following "classical" mindset to a more strategic, dynamic and adaptive mindset. Adopting a jazz mindset will help individuals and organizations react to—and even initiate—change more quickly. Improvisation and daring to create new things using a more malleable approach to decision making can inspire high performance.
Adopting a Jazz Mindset for Strategic Execution and Leadership discusses:
- Balancing personal freedom with sufficient constraints within an organization
- How to embrace failure as a source for learning and future success
- Knowing when to be adaptive and flexible versus when to be rigid and follow process
Consider the jazz mindset as a new way of thinking about getting the job done. By using agility, creativity and responsiveness as your instruments, you can bring your strategy or music to life.
