How to lead like a conductor

If you have been following this blog for a while you will know that I love to look at those who lead in very different spheres to me and see what applies in the places I lead.

Michael Hyatt is clearly interested in the same thing and has a number of posts on the subject.  In this one he reflects on leadership lessons that can be learnt from a symphony conductor.  Here is his summary:

  1. Start with a plan
  2. Recruit the best players
  3. Be visible, so everyone can see you
  4. Lead with your heart
  5. Delegate and focus on what only you can do
  6. Be aware of your gestures and their impact
  7. Keep your back to the audience
  8. Share the spotlight

The original article contains a link to a podcast where Michael goes into a little more detail.
