Leadership Training: Leadership is a Performing Art™
Developing the Competencies of Inspiration, Imagination, & Innovation through Leadership Training and Development
What if the most effective leaders are also artists & the most effective artists are also leaders?
Composer, Performing Artist & Leadership Consultant, Kevin Asbjörnson, MIM parallels the worlds of performing artists and leaders and reminds us that the same creative competencies which differentiate performing artists are often the same creative competencies overlooked in management and leadership development programs.
According to Kevin Asbjörnson, MIM, Founder & Principal Performing Artist of Inspire! Imagine! Innovate!:
“Leaders and performing artists face similar challenges in the global experience & performance based economies of the twenty-first century. Managers and leaders are not prepared, however, to engage their creative and artistic competencies in decision-making, managing change and leading people.”
Corporate learning centers, human resource and organizational development professionals are simultaneously challenged to refine their orientation and redefine the services they provide their organizations to compete in the performance and experience-based economies of the world.
In the article Solving HR’s Crisis of the Imagination, Nick Nissley, Ed.D. suggests:
“What if we stopped being consumed with trying to manage the human resources of the workplace and instead focused our professional talents on developing our organizations’ human resourcefulness? Resourcefulness is the human capability of being able to cope with challenging situations and as we know, our success in work lives— especially as leaders— is defined by our ability to work through challenges.”
To assist corporate learning centers, human resource and organizational development professionals with adapting a new language and orientation in the workplace, Kevin Asbjörnson, MIM facilitates a unique, interactive learning symposium entitled Leadership is a Performing Art™.
This innovative leadership training program integrates the language of music with the language of emotional intelligence to provide attendees an opportunity to explore, discover and practice the Eight Keys to Inspired Leadership® and the
I3 Model of Inspiring Performance®.
Leadership Training & Development practitioner Kevin Asbjörnson's Executive Leadership Program:
“...explores developing the competencies of inspiration, imagination and innovation as the foundation of leadership which acknowledges and develops the human capital resource within organizations of the twenty-first century.
Participation in this interactive leadership training and learning symposium provides attendees with leadership skills, practical insights, and relevant applications to their specific work environment.
Attendees of Leadership is a Performing Art™ receive a copy of the compact disc, Collage-Contemporary Piano Solos by Kevin Asbjörnson, MIM as a learning reinforcement tool and a complimentary overview of the Eight Keys to Inspired Leadership®.
