Jazz Insights is a performance-based exploration of the leadership principles of jazz. Duncan deconstructs the jazz group and in the process demonstrates how the team is able to problem solve and work creatively in real-time. The audience is invited to interact with the musicians and draw parallels between the world of jazz and organisational development.
Jazz musicians’ objectives are to break boundaries and find new ways of playing music. They embrace diversity and share leadership in a quest to find new directions in music. Mistakes are considered opportunities as jazz musicians realise that creative solutions are found in the most obscure places. Improvisation is rarely truly original, but more often a continuous evolution of ideas built from the musical conversations within the team.
The principles which jazz musicians adopt are transferable skills and provide a real formula for teams to apply to their own creative challenges. Duncan shares these principles in a unique and engaging performance. Jazz Insights is an engaging and entertaining presentation with live performances from Duncan’s group.
Participants walk away with:
- a unique perspective on leadership & teamwork
- a formula for creative problem solving
- a rare opportunity to engage with a live jazz band
Jazz Insights can be used as a stand-alone program within a conference, event or meeting or can be combined with some of our other programs. It also serves as a great after-dinner talk with live music throughout the evening.
