The Music Paradigm
Roger Nierenberg, a veteran orchestra conductor and creator of The Music Paradigm, uses a symphony orchestra to reveal concepts and techniques that will help improve your organization’s speed, agility and resilience. His customized presentations pinpoint key behaviors connected to leadership and collaboration and bring them to life with fascinating, interactive examples.
The participants’ attention is drawn to fascinating and unexpected organizational dynamics within the orchestra, revealing what makes organizations excel, and what may keep them from performing at their best. By examining the orchestra, you see your own organization and your behaviors more clearly than if you had focused on them directly.
Nierenberg offers The Music Paradigm in two formats: with a live professional orchestra integrated among your people, or as a speech utilizing carefully selected video examples from The Music Paradigm library. With either option, the event is tailored to address your organization’s specific challenges and support your aspirations. Nierenberg skillfully draws out observations from the participants, leading to lessons and insights that can be applied to help develop and strengthen any organization.
Nierenberg and The Music Paradigm were the focus of a one-hour prime-time television broadcast on the BBC’s Money Programme. He is also the author of Maestro: A Surprising Story About Leading by Listening, which was awarded Best Leadership Book of 2009 by 800-CEO-READ. His programs consistently receive top ratings at conferences throughout the world, and he has presented to hundreds of different organizations, from civic groups to Fortune 500 companies, in twenty-three different countries.
