The Conductor's Perspective
For those in leadership conducting is in a way part of their everyday life. The Conductor’s Perspective literally translates this into the world of the conductor and her/his orchestra.
The conductor is responsible for the performance of her/his team without actually contributing operatively to the outcome: The conductor is the only musician who does not play a single note. At the same time (s)he is leading highly talented experts, with skills (s)he does not possess, in a highly inflexible organizational structure.
All the more, it is a question of attitude, how the conductor sees and fills her/his role - regardless of the external conditions. How can (s)he be effective and how does (s)he contribute added value? How can (s)he achieve that the musicians are making music together instead of playing their notes only?
