Artists who reach creative genius, like Miha, have a purpose-driven method, and it is exactly that process that Miha has been using for decades to develop leadership teams of corporate giants like Johnson & Johnson, Bosch, IBM, Microsoft, Coca Cola, Shell, Novartis, BIAH, Electrolux, Unilever, World Bank, Harvard Business School... and many others.
No prior musical knowledge is required, only an open mind and readiness to be challenged on both the left and right side of the brain. Welcome to a different and vibrant experience! As Miha shares: “For management achieving excellence is the goal; but for us, performing artists, it is the starting point. For us only striving for genius matters, for uniqueness, once-and-never again, for a compelling, vibrant vision of the Big Picture. And these are also the parameters of genuine leadership in these turbulent times of change, uncertainty and systemic multiple crisis.”

Miha is adjunct professor of Art and Leadership at IEDC – Bled School of Management. His life has been marked by social innovations, including creation of over 200 intercultural festivals in crisis areas of the world, and in the course of last 20 years working with leadership of over 100 global brand companies, appearing at the World Economic Forum in Davos and China, and European Economic Forum in Alpbach, Austria, as well as in different Agencies of the UN. He has been teaching at business schools like Harvard, INSEAD, IMD, IESE Barcelona, CEIBS Shanghai, THNK Amsterdam, Berlin School of Creative Leadership and Hitotsubashi University in Tokyo.

A Creative Detour to Unleash Human Potential

The artistic process in business is about exploring unknown paths, radically changing directions, if necessary, making detours, abandoning failure and starting anew. This is how the greatest artists tap their deepest human potential when creating a masterpiece, and it is this framework of purpose-driven mastery that world-renowned violinist and leadership consultant Miha Pogacnik shares with his audiences. He takes them on a creative detour that helps each individual unleash a powerful new method to tap into their deepest human potential to solve challenging problems with vision, structure, and determined resolve. These are the capabilities that will help each person push through these uncertain times with a calling toward greatness. And even if they do not reach mastery, the journey alone will make each person and their final outcome better and stronger. Read More >
