Then the session continues with presentation of the highlighting notes about how the team members (the team that plays classical music) are balancing listening and responding, emotional awareness, preparation, self-discipline, concentration, rationality and emotional flow, as well as personal and shared responsibility in performance.

By live piano performance, Mihail Kitanovski present the ability of new Leaders and/or Salesman, how these characteristics should be implemented in real business world and communication processes.

Creative people and their processes play a prominent role in business processes as organizations seek to deploy the merits of business process management to more than just the set of transactional processes. Product development and marketing campaigns are just two examples of such creativity-intensive processes that increasingly find their way into the agenda of process managers. Besides this, there are entire and quickly growing industries designed around creative processes, with the entertainment industry being the most prominent example of a creative industry.

The dynamic musical world of jazz provides an excellent illustration of this new corporate environment. The session begins with a short performance, giving participants an opportunity to listen and observe how jazz musicians improvise and innovate within clearly defined structures, make changes, be more flexible, take risks, value diversity, rotate leadership and build on each other’s ideas in performance.

The performance of symphony orchestra is one the most effective and powerful metaphors. Knowing the overall strategy helps the company’s workforce stay focused on the organizational mission: meeting the needs of the consumers in that target market. Even if the company implements smart policies, competitors might steal customers, unexpected disasters might cripple operations and economy fluctuations might erode the buying capabilities of target market. Corporate policies are only as effective as their implementation. Good corporate governance requires having the discipline and commitment to implement policies, resolutions and strategies. Fairness must always be a high priority for management. Companies also must be fair to their customers, both for ethical and public-relations reasons. Managers sometimes keep their own counsel, limiting the information that filters down to employees. When employees understand management’s strategies and are allowed to monitor the company’s financial performance, they understand their roles within the company.
