What an Orchestra Conductor Can Teach Organizations
On this episode of Talking Business Now, Maestro Roger Nierenberg joins host Kelly Scanlon to explore how an organization’s culture mirrors the organizational dynamics within an orchestra.
Nierenberg is an orchestral conductor, leadership consultant and the author of Maestro: A Surprising Story About Leading by Listening. He’s also the founder of The Music Paradigm, a learning experience he uses to show how crucial organizational development issues can be powerfully brought to life within an orchestra.
Tune in to discover how the lessons of an orchestra can enhance your company’s organizational development:

■ The lessons an orchestra teaches us about leadership
■ The ways in which an orchestra mirrors diversity in an organization
Nierenberg made his New York conducting debut at Avery Fisher with the Pro Arte Chorale and Orchestra and has conducted several great American orchestras. He’s also recorded with the London Philharmonic and conducted at both the Prague Spring Festival and the Beijing Festival. He has collaborated with many of the most renowned solo artists and composers of our time.
During his tenure with the Jacksonville Symphony, Nierenberg became curious about the challenges and opportunities organizations face during times of rapid change. As a result, he created The Music Paradigm. The program has taken Nierenberg to the podium of more than 90 orchestras and before hundreds of organizations in 23 countries.
The organization’s people, who become participants, are seated within a live professional orchestra where they can observe highly trained musicians as they perform. The participants’ attention is drawn to fascinating and unexpected organizational dynamics within the orchestra. Before each event, Nierenberg joins the company’s leadership to learn what they want to achieve with the exercise. Based on that conversation, he devises interactive exercises for the orchestra that will bring their most important issues to life.
