What does a musical conductor know about leadership?




With 40 years as musical conductor, Ballou uses the leadership skills utilized daily by the conductor in teaching relevant leadership skills and showing leaders the power of creating a high performance culture that responds to the nuances of the leader as a skilled orchestra responds to the musical director.
