Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - The Conductor doesn't Make a Sound

Thank you, Carey. Glad the video was an inspiration. I've been following the work of great conductors for several years now, so it resonated with me.

Thanks Valeria,

I've been recommending this video to many friends. The great conductor relinquishes ownership. This makes him or her a leader, and adds value to every activity. Same with any other leader too.

A link to your piece will be in my WP blog, and my next weekly newsletter, Keep up the great work!

@Brian - glad you enjoyed the post. I LOVED the video, so that came across in my thinking and post. The whole idea is so contrary to what many experience at work that it by and large remains a distant dream. That's right, without the orchestra, the conductor is just a character waving a stick. What a privilege waving that stick is!

@Peter - if only.
