Emotional Innovation for IT Leaders

Highlights from Miha Pogacnik’s global transformational journey in 2015

Looking back on adventurous 2015, let me share with you some highlights starting with the last….

Bringing Masterpieces to life at the corporate podiums worldwide

I again delivered, as every year, a Leadership Resonance Masterclass® – workshop style learning module for the BOSCH Gmbh leaders in Berlin. Because of relatively small group of VP level participants we could explore the creative “translation” of music masterpiece’s deep emotional impact into poetry, which was created by participants in small teams: While all content related to the corporate values! It felt like we are well on the way towards a formula for executive learning beyond only information, transiting knowledge to wisdom, striving beyond excellence towards genius!

 

“Driven by passion” with Fiat-Chrysler Group

For the second time I was part of the annual FCA Group leaders meeting in Serbia at the Lake Bor. Together we spend two days with various interactive and creative exercises, encouraging attendees’ artistic expression to reach higher teamwork and leadership level through my “Transformational Leadership and Teambuilding Journey”. Next year they will be sitting in the symphony orchestra, among the players, to explore my “symphonic organization” methodology!

Making the world a better place with MAHLE Foundation

One of most valuable experiences of the year came through a request for my support during the 50 years celebration of MAHLE Foundation in Stuttgart, extraordinary organization supporting diverse future bearing fields arising from the work of Rudolf Steiner: Education, arts, health, agriculture and beyond. You might be interested in this solution: Imagine the challenge of almost a dozen official speeches on the the opening
night, who can listen attentively through all that? The solution was my Resonance Platform Event Support Model®: Between the speeches we “inserted” short moderated musical magic moments with my wonderful pianist Diana Baker and the concentration could last for the rest on the programme! My final concert in the packed chapel is not easy to describe: suddenly many people approached me who traveled the world with me
in 80’s and 90’s during some of our 200 intercultural IDRIART festivals before the turn of the millennium…. another long story of the power of music during social upheavals…

New workshop for IT LEADERS recommended by Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple

In 2015 I also delivered two insightful performances at leading IT events: IBM Business Connect 2015 in Cologne and Gartner Identity Access Management (I AM) Summit in London which were the birth-place of new workshop: World 4.0: The power of Emotional Innovation for IT Leaders. All about the inner balance and double growth…

RE-INVENTING TALENT MANAGEMENT : “THE POWER OF ART & EMOTIONS ”

The context for talent development is critical! It was amazing educational experience for my clients and myself during the one-day Developing Talents Workshop with top UBS IT professionals in Wolfsberg, Switzerland. Musical process-performance supplemented with other art methods greatly stimulates creativity and change in human being. Enthusiastic feedback confirmed the value of this creative team-building method: “So unique and different! Highly engaging! Seminar like no other!”

 

Miha supporting consultants worldwide

My musical method is getting highly recognized among consultants who often invite me to support the events of their clients. In October, for instance, I truly enjoyed working with a creative consulting group Peoplerise who also use Otto Scharmer’s Theory U model in their workshops. Music speaks directly to the feelings and my method brings the masterpiece structure alive, making the leadership journey unforgettable experience and inner force for change. This was the musical impulse for ELECTROLUX sales force leadership. Also in October I supported in a similar way my colleagues consultants at ICG, Integrated Consulting Group Learning Days in Cologne. Deep learning requires the next level consciousness change and music, through my “interruptive method”, does it!

“DINNER WITH FRIENDS”

It is always great joy for us artists to meet with business leaders in creative atmosphere. Musical strategy experience inspires conversations to the higher level of meaning, resulting in the flow of unique business ideas. My friend Anders Indset invited me to perform for a group of executives from Montagsgesellschaft e.V. community in Frankfurt in September, entitled “Dinner with Friends”, and it really felt like it!

One of worlds’ favorite corporate speakers…

Key-note motivational speeches, moderated workshops and ‘Midnight Concerts’ following his presentations have resulted in consistent stream of
enthusiastic feedback and standing ovations!

“Speaking to you, dear HR leaders, it feels like coming back home. Let us consider r e s o n a n c e as the key enabler for your profession, develop Human Resonance!” this is how I greeted the distinguished HR leaders from around the world at the Talent Management stream within the prestigious European event “HR Core Lab” in Barcelona, where my speech was highest rated among all other speakers.

And more in Barcelona: I presented for the academic faculty of the renowned IESE Business School, where I have been supporting the IESE-HARVARD-CEIBS Chinese Global CEO programme for many years.
In Barcelona I also delivered my “Passage Through the Fire” lecture for Novartis Pharma European leadership, who invited me again this autom to speak at their leadership meeting in Villach, Austria.

Developing Talents Workshop with top UBS IT professionals in Wolfsberg, Switzerland

 

MY Innovation: aiming for organizational masterpiece…

“Managers target excellence. For the artist, excellence is only a starting point – artist’s visionary goal is genius”…”only the impossible is truly practical!”
Unlocking imagination with my musical method, in Wuppertal I enabled the synergy of science and art with a leading German engineers association at the VDI Impulsgespraeche event.
During my opening key-note speech at the prestigious Gartner Identity Summit London 2015 I “translated” processes of classical music into the realm of business transformation, helping modern organizations face changes and challenges in disruptive economy.
My Resonance Platform Event Support Model came to life at the “Celebrating Life! Celebrating Soil!” Eosta Event in Amsterdam, as a part of the UN International Year of Soils.
It was an adventurous pleasure to be part of the C-Talks kick-off event, the leading peer-to-peer organization for C-level executives in Switzerland. “Congratulations, I am impressed by your performance, the best I have seen for a long time!” is what one of the guests, CEO of Mövenpick wrote afterwards.

Striving for GENIUS RESULTS with top brand clients…

Working with VP level of Bosch, Fiat and Weidplas leadership, my method of engaging formative forces of different art disciplines proved very helpful for participants generating their own, original solutions. My outreach to insurance industry was highlighted in 2015 with successful support at Baloise.

After helping Portugal’s top brand Portucel Soporcel with generating innovation, the company’s CEO exclaimed at the end: “We appreciate highly your captivating way of customizing your method, this is very helpful for our transformation journey!

One of world’s much in-demand corporate speakers…

In Cancun, Mexico, my popular “Business Sonata” was highly appreciated by the audience, leading global event organizers and industry professionals at the World Meeting Forum 2015.

Pursuing solutions to global financial challenges…

In the forefront of massive European monetary challenge, Hellenic Managers’ Association invited me to be the key-note speaker at the “Manager of The Year” award ceremony in Athens, Greece, encouraging the leadership to find innovative solutions for disruptive economy.

Brreton Woods IV Convocation

My interest in working with global financial institutions over the years recently led me to a very creative session with the global private markets investment management, Partners Group. My musical thinking quite naturally resulted in the question about our global monetary system and I began exploring with my colleagues “the challenging call” of evolving this system from monoculture to “polyphonic” ecosystem.

 

THE MUSICAL method goes “mainstream” in academic curriculum

I continued introducing musical ideas for interdisciplinary curriculum at St. Gallen Business School and IEDC – Bled School of Management, where i serve as adjunct professor of Arts and Leadership. And during 2015 I gave again a presentation at 1492 Game Changer event in Altausee, Austria, a brilliant idea of Michael Hengl, who is the founder of 1492.//School of Business where I serve on the board of directors.

 

The next big thing…

Two in-house corporate workshops for two leading corporations in Dubai were the birthplace of INSPIRE DUBAI SOUL Expo 2020 Resonance Platform.
www.InspireDubaiSoul.com

Dedicated to helping communities transform and grow…

As in the past, it have been my passion to actively participate in many special private events, co-creating visionary ideas with colleagues in the business, political, social and cultural scene. My special diplomatic mission as Slovenian Cultural Ambassador evolved over years to a very specific support of Slovenia’s business diplomacy.
‘Events bring people together and when people come together innovation and collaboration happens. Miha led a workshop in London for a number of change makers in the event industry, which created the foundation for an ongoing conversation on how events can transform our world’

Empowering Transformation

Resonance Platform – A New Method in Leadership Skills Building

This interactive coaching and educational method for creation of  “safe” places for open communication was developed by Miha Pogacnik and is based on a) use of formative forces of high art and culture (especially music and visual arts) as stimulus addressing emotional intelligence and creativity within each participant and b) Chladny effect  (a well known physical experiment with resonance, more on http://www.terraparzival.eu/stran/5/tp_regional) where expert moderator through targeted moderation and creation of artistic resonance helps participants to develop inner organization of cognitive and emotional processes in form of  their own awakened biographic structured ideas. This process results in enhanced capacity of group co-creation, heartstorming and solution-based learning.

The resonance platfrom method is recommended for groups up to 40 participants and can be performed by moderators who can demonstrate a high mastery of artistic performance and have adequate expert knowledge as well as experience in managerial skills building, phenomenology and artful leadership education.

You can find one example of Miha’s seminar using resonance platfrom method by clicking here.

Eine Geige für Europa

INFO 3: Neue Terra Parzival Projektinformationen in Deutsch

Mit den IDRIART-Kulturfestivals öffnete der Violinist Miha Pogačnik einst menschliche Begegnungsräume von Chartres bis in die ferne Mongolei. Nun will er mit seinem neuen Projekt „Terra Parzival“ seinem Heimatland Slowenien zu nachhaltiger Entwicklung und Europa zu einer Identität verhelfen.

Mit Parzivals Hilfe – brand eins 01/2014

“Häufiger aber stehen hinter Veränderungen Menschen, die schöpferisch sein, etwas Einzigartiges, Neues, Ursprüngliches schaffen wollen. Das alles waren einmal Bedeutungen des Begriffs Originalität – und es ist eine interessante Frage, warum originell heute meist nur noch im Sinne von komisch oder eigenartig verwendet wird…Aber mit der Verfeinerung des Alten kommen wir nicht mehr weiter, wir brauchen viel mehr von denen, die neu denken – und sich nicht darum scheren, ob sie deshalb dem einen oder anderen als Spinner erscheinen.

Next Step: A Better European Future

Miha Pogačnik is a man of many talents and ideas. Miha currently occupies himself with the idea of the cultural and spiritual awakening of Europe, endeavouring to bring it back to its core or more precisely to the land of the mythical king Parsifal and all he represents.

slovenia-timesPogačnik has always been involved in various art projects. First he was a successful violinist, then in the 1980’s he established Idriart, a non-profit organisation based on the idea that art is the bearer of social change. Idriart took him around the world to intervene in political, social and cultural situations in crisis areas and through it he has produced over 180 festivals in collaboration with local hosts. “There was enormous success. Thousands of people came with us to Prague, Estonia, Georgia, Tibet, the Amazon, but then in the 1990s the world changed,” says Pogačnik. “I noticed that if I kept doing the same thing, I would just be repeating myself.” He found himself in a “success trap” as he calls it – a situation when one gets stuck by being successful and restlessly starts asking questions about creativity and innovation, pushing them toward new projects to fulfil the need to create something fresh.

Music as an Answer to the Crisis

“I’ve always asked myself in what way can art contribute to changing the world and I’ve always tried to follow the call coming from the world,” explains Pogačnik who developed a special method, introducing a new concept for listening to music: “Of all the arts, music goes straight to the human heart and I’ve always felt that the experiences professional musicians get are not just pertinent to the life of artists but can be used generally.” As our extremely fragmented society, based on the economy, has found itself in a crisis, Pogačenik believes it is the time to start dealing with it: “Leaders are making decisions from their limited, specialised viewpoint and I, as an artist, feel I need to help them broaden their horizons, generate inner inspiration, motivation and energy.” He says that the basic reason he has been working with the economy and leadership is to make them aware that they can manage their companies in the way which composes society.
Pogačnik creates an environment in which questions are asked in a different way and casts new light on the immediate crisis and the general situation – through classical art created by geniuses who he sees as the greatest art substance Europeans have. And how does he trigger change? “I invite executives to enter the process of musical masterpieces in such way that I play and stop, comment and paint – I decompose the piece. They are seated among the orchestra and therefore get first-hand experience of the musical process,” explains Pogačnik who asserts no musical knowledge is necessary for this method to work, “just the willingness to permit the feelings to rise. I want to get people to the point where they let go of all the nervousness, distrust and animosity and open up to the possibility of a creative detour.” According to him, this happens because music moves at the archetypal level which is above everyday experiences, thus giving direction and solutions to problems which are then viewed from a new perspective and can later be dealt with by an out-of-the-box approach. “Art is full of meaning and if you go through the experience of meaning, you are transformed and find everything meaningful, also problems,” notes Pogačnik who points out that the lack of meaning is the heart of the current crisis, the financial aspect being its expression.
The method, which establishes a new relationship between art and business, has proven to be very effective – he has collaborated with scores of leading companies globally, business schools, research institutions, professional associations and also with UN agencies and the World Business Academy. In his opinion, his ideas work because they become ideals.

The Legend of (Slovenian) Parsifal

However, as he notes, ideas go through a process of hatching which requires time and patience. “Slovenia can be metaphorically viewed as a hen which hatches new ideas, useful for all of Europe,” says Pogačnik who goes on to explain the most intriguing story of the mythical figure Parsifal from the 9th century, “one of the most important European cultural legends comes from Slovenia.” The roots of the Eastern counterpart of the more famous King Arthur from the West are in Ptuj, as described in the magnificent epic poem created by Wolfram von Eschenbach around 1212. “Parsifal is everywhere, he is a European but originates from Slovenia. He is not historical fact but he is a mythical figure. Both kings existed at the same time, Arthur and Parsifal dealt with bringing order to society, however from the West came capitalism and globalisation, while from the East came philosophy, art and beauty. The two need to be balanced in a productive way,” says Pogačnik.
According to him, balancing would help the currently wrong relationship between humans and the economy in a way that the latter would start serving the former and also aid the European identity which has found itself in deep crisis. “European identity is based on the heritage of artistic geniuses like Beethoven, van Gogh, Shakespeare and Mozart who brought culture to the highest level and has many varieties. However, because of globalisation these varieties have lost power. Yet Europe is special because of its diversity. Every country is important in the creation of this polyphonic identity – it functions vitally like an organ in the human body,” notes Pogačnik who recognises the point of Parsifal, Slovenia and the Terra Parzival foundation he is part of: “Our country, with its trinity of landscapes, symbolising the trinity of body-soul-spirit, is perfect to become an instrument of the European identity as the time is right. Parsifal’s territory in Slovenia symbolises the rise of the spirit. Europe has also entered its third phase of development which is that of spirit. We are trying to inspire imagination in a creative way which would result in long-term, sustainable, meaningful development where the human being is in the centre.”

Terra Parzival Foundation of the Future

June saw the first of the three-day Terra Parzival Festival, organised in significant places linked to the mythical king. Attendees underwent the musical masterpiece decomposition method of opening up to new ideas and learnt about the story of Parsifal and its significance in numerous creative ways – they created a grail, attended a tournament of knights, experienced live music in a cave and also many other activities. “Slovenians are like Parisfal – we are just waiting for something to happen, but this must change to action – just like he took action,” affirms Pogačnik.
Slovenia may be small, but Pogačnik believes that with a powerful idea, size does not matter: “We would like to connect Terra Parsifal to the platform of the European Cultural Parliament through its Cultural Secretary General who came to the festival.” The potential is enormous and according to Pogačnik, there is space for change in human beings and the terra incognita which lies inside of everyone: “We’ve created the illusion that we are fixed from cradle to tomb, but functioning this way is just more or less going through life where nothing really happens. This bare survival and dreams with no action have created the crisis. But crisis, as I said before, is meaningful and it’s a good thing to have as it forces you to delve deeper and discover the unexploited realms we possess.”
The legend of Parsifal is very much linked to the present day situation and teaches individuals to start fighting old patterns and accepting the change in life. “Einstein once said that you can’t solve new problems with old ideas and this is where Parsifal comes in. He had to learn to ask the right questions, do the right thing at the right time – and this is also the challenge of the modern human being,” asserts Pogačnik who sees Terra Parzival as the new herald of changes that need to take place. “Everything is already here and we’ve started to realise how to create an environment to act and move. And this is what we’re trying to do with Terra Parzival – this element is an instrument on which you play Europe.”

DDI: Coffe on the GO with Miha Pogacnik

ddi

The renowned classical violinist shows business leaders how art and leadership are intertwined.

Leadership is often described as an art because it lacks the rigor and replicability of a science. But leadership and art actually have a lot in common. That’s the message of Miha Pogačnik, a classical musician and entrepreneur who traded concert hall performances for intense sessions he conducts around the world in which he guides business leaders through the deconstruction and evaluation of great works of classical music. As he takes the leaders inside the piece of music, examining how it is constructed and why it works, he encourages them to draw comparisons to the challenges they face in their everyday roles and their approaches to viewing and solving their business challenges.

Pogačnik, who will be among the featured presenters at the upcoming conference Leadership & Management Forum Europe 2012, spoke with GO about his one-of-a-kind sessions, the universal language of music, and how the terminology of art is prevalent in business.

GO: How did you come to move from your profession as a classical violinist to the work you’re now doing with leaders?

Pogačnik: I realized that the world had changed so much in the late 20th century from the times of the great masters. It was like the world had become like a big factory of musicians, so I stepped out of it. I created a movement where I invited my audiences to travel with me to different areas of the world, as far away as Tibet and across Siberia and Mongolia and Russia.

Through my experimenting, I began to understand that there’s so much art can offer in terms of inspiring human beings when it comes to being a leader. And I saw that the leaders on the top floors of corporations and the leading entrepreneurs needed to discover or rediscover artistic principles in order to see their businesses, their leadership abilities, and their challenges in a different way.

GO: Describe what happens in your sessions.

Pogačnik: I have the participants sit among the players of the symphony orchestra and then I take a great violin concerto, Beethoven or Brahms for instance, and I direct the participants through the development of the masterpiece and the problems the composer had to solve. I engage them in conversation and put them in small groups after they’ve gone through this experience. I seek out their observations and uncover their new ideas.

Because I take people completely into a field they are unfamiliar with, they feel very insecure at first, but when we go deep into the music, suddenly they discover that the challenges and solutions that contributed to the creation of the masterpiece, and the way to interpret those processes, have a lot to do with the challenges they are encountering every day, such as how to work together, how to execute strategy, and so forth.

That’s the fun part of what I do. You introduce people to the issues and potential solutions that are present in a piece of music, then you leave it up to them to be inspired and determine what they should take away and use. As a performer, it’s always surprising to see the connections they make when you’re leaving it up to them and not telling them what to do.

GO: What is the connection between music and leadership?

Pogačnik: An organization is like a great symphony in many ways. When you look at the orchestra it’s so obvious that you have a body of 60, 70, 80 people and they each must be very good in their own right.

But when they play together they share something quite different. In an organization, egos play a big role, but in classical music as soon as the musicians in the orchestra start playing a great masterpiece, egos drop away and don’t disturb the whole process anymore.

GO: Do audiences in different parts of the world react differently to what you are doing?

Pogačnik: I think great classical European music has the potential to touch the human within the human. I was doing a session with a group of students from Africa who did not have many opportunities to come into contact with European classical music. So I did it my way and after five minutes they were saying, “How is it possible we don’t know this music? If we heard it on the radio we would immediately shut it off, but the way you present it, it makes so much sense. We want to know more.” In other words, the framework in which you do something matters. If you can reach across the barriers that are erected between cultures, locations, and all that, and immerse people in experiencing a masterpiece, it doesn’t matter where they’re from. The reaction will be the same.

GO: Is a leader a performer or does a leader need to be more of an engaged and attuned listener?

Pogačnik: Both, of course. But performance is only the finer touch. You see, a leader has to have the capacity to slip into and understand another person’s role.

It’s very difficult to lead from the periphery. Teamwork comes up so often in my sessions because teamwork is on everybody’s mind and you cannot really be a team unless you work together. When a leader pushes the rest of the group and brainwashes them into action and gets them smiling and saying yes, that’s not the same as having a team. A team is about people wanting to work together and that’s something you can really learn by listening to a string quartet. You have four individuals who must work together in a tight and sometimes turbulent relationship, but the music they make together is so glorious because everybody is also an individual.

GO: It seems that centuries ago we used to be better at integrating art with our everyday lives and our business. Does it feel as if we’re starting to move back in that direction?

Pogačnik: You know, so much of the language used in business comes from art. In business they talk about performance all the time; they talk about creativity, orchestration, conducting, and so forth.

It’s like the business world desperately wants to have some association with the world of art. Everybody talks about performance, but they never talk to professional performers, like me, to learn what it’s really about. For example, it’s very interesting that excellence is a word that comes up so often in business. But for us musicians, excellence is nothing. Genius is what matters in art, not excellence. Excellence is just a starting point.

berlin school of creative leadership presents miha pogacnik at Adfest

berlin-school-of-creative-leadership

What does a virtuoso violin player know about creativity? A lot, according to the Berlin School of Creative Leadership, which is presenting an inspirational speaker at ADFEST 2009 that promises to be one of the highlights of the festival line-up.

Miha Pogačnik is a virtuoso violinist and cultural ambassador with an exceptional capacity to use classical music to inspire creative leaders to think beyond traditional boundaries. His presentation will be titled “Passage Through The Fire: A Harmonious Strategy For Uncertain Times”, and is likely to be one of the most unforgettable presentations of the year.

Through his music, Pogacnik brings the concept of ‘Creative Leadership’ to life by exploring the relationships between harmony and tension, success and failure, flow and crisis. In an economic climate of great turbulence, there’s no better time to seek creative inspiration from ‘outside the box’.

Part impassioned classical musical performance, part live improvisational drawing and 100% unbridled energy, Miha is an inspirational master of communication. His presentation is made possible by the Berlin School of Creative Leadership.

Miha Pogačnik boasts an unusual mix of musical and corporate skills. He is the President and Founder of the Institute for Development of Intercultural Relations through the Arts (IDRIART) and a Board Member of the Berlin School of Creative Leadership.

Since 1998, he has directed the annual Business and Art Conference at Castle Borl, Slovenia and has also addressed the World Business Academy, the World Economic Forum in Davos, and groups at the United Nations.

Miha´s clients also include Ericsson, Royal Dutch Shell, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Saatchi & Saatchi, Whirlpool, Skandia Insurance, ABN Amro Bank, Nike and The Body Shop.

University of Luxembourg: Research Across Boundaries

universite-du-luxembourg-2

Miha is Cultural Ambassador of the Republic of Slovenia, President and Founder of the Institute for Development of Intercultural Relations through the Arts (IDRIART) and Managing Director of Ecoculture SECS. After completing a Fulbright Scholarship, Miha’s intellectual curiosity, joie de vivre and vision to position the arts as a driver for social change, led him to step outside the parameters of a classical concert violinist. Why? Because … “the linear and rational must fuse with inspiration, beauty and passion for change to be implemented.”

On our journey to “discover common concerns and stimulating differences regarding advanced boundary-crossing research approaches,” we will after two days of parallel sessions, wish to make a transition to making sense of our conversations as a whole. To do this we will take a detour in order to cross yet another boundary and give ourselves time for both perspective and process. The boundary we will cross is one from the theoretical and academic orientations of our focus to the world of great music.

Miha tells us that:

“My teaching tool is the violin performance. I “decompose” masterpieces (taking apart, directing attention, commenting and putting together again) to help participants to hear and experience exactly the musical evolution. I support this with symbolic painting of the emerging process, conversations with participants and performance. Therefore my presentation can be seen as “creative detour,” exploring hidden potentials through the “parallel process” of great masterpieces of music. Once musical patterns are explored then I help participants discover in creative ways the relevance of these experiences as potential solutions to their own dilemmas.”

This detour will take us outside the boundaries of our prior conversations, where we will find archetypical themes that can seed our knowledge café, open space and plenary meaning making to come. Miha’s breadth of knowledge spans many boundaries, and his passion and enthusiasm for creating transformative experiences will help us transform and internalize the content of the previous sessions in truly intimate and personal way.
