We are in the elevator and unknown person, probably executive in a global brand company, turns to me and says: “Is that a violin in your case? Performing a concert tonight?” (Here we are: I am pigeonholed: violinist = glorified entertainer!) – “No. I am on my way to an event to help executives like you find their own solutions for their problems.” – “With violin??? Serious?”
I will help them to listen to the process of a genius masterpiece,
get them passionate with out-of-the-box solutions emerging from musical complications
and empower their own solution-sparks to jump the line back to their leadership dilemma,
surprise, surprise: resolving, implementing. Creative detour – fastest road to the goal!
With 100% engagement, like true artists, no SMSing during my session!
At the end I will perform, and they will hear the performing organisation!
And my promise: they will never forget those change messages…”
(we are approaching the ground floor.) – “But my team does not necessarily like classical music!” – “Brilliant starting point: Art is not about liking, it is about real change and transformation!” – “But I am afraid my boss will not like it…!?” – “Well, then you might better get yet another PowerPoint presentation!” (Uhhhhhsh, the doors open.) – “May I have your business card… CIO, Chief INSPIRATION Officer…???!”
“Yes, you need inspiration if you want your change event hit the bottom line!”
Gone in the crowd… gone?

LEADERSHIP INNOVATION THROUGH MUSICAL PROCESS
ALL my work stands or falls with the factor of “MUSICAL MASTERPIECE PROCESS”. Because if I only played violin beautifully, as thousands and thousands do, event organizers of leadership meetings would have no reason inviting me to their sessions for help, and those teams would not know what to do with a nice violin performance! I went through so many years of performing experience and research to invent this science of translating the process of a masterpieces into leadership journey, to help managers (objectively at hand of a musical process, regardless of their musical preference), to look at dilemmas and challenges of their daily work from fresh and different perspective. In this way the musical masterpiece lifts participants to the “raised resonance platform”, a sparkling and creative environment, empowering them for self discovery of sustainable solutions !
This executive change phenomena is impossible without “decomposing” music into “process” -(which is not at all “beautiful” at times, actually by very method disruptive because i paint and tell stories in addition to playing, performing kind of “open heart surgery on music”)-in order to invite everyone “in”, BEYOND unproductive sympathy and antipathy.
Only at the very end of my session, after gathering participants innovating insights aligned with the objectives of the company, I give the masterpiece the chance to be “resurrected” through my final performance, but then EVERYONE is listening and learning with “many ears on many levels” of emotional intelligence!
