The Rhythm of Success

The Rhythm of Success is a one-of-a-kind program designed to challenge and inspire organizations to discover their untapped potential. The format is fast-paced, entertaining, and as the secrets of the world’s undisputed international language of music are revealed, full of surprises. No matter what kind of organization—from small companies to large corporations—employees at all levels will tune-up to a better future by becoming more collaborative, productive and ultimately more profitable. This multi-media “keynote concert” experience is sure to open or close your meeting on a dynamic high note.

Teamwork: The Power of Human Harmonics

Have you ever heard a great sounding band or orchestra where everyone is a soloist? It doesn’t exist. For over a decade, the Gallup Polls reveal that 4 out of 5 employees are disengaged in their work costing the US economy over $500 billion in lost revenue. Moreover, passive listening is so common in our culture that people remember half of what they hear—even moments after they’ve heard it. Illuminating the properties of Harmony to resolve conflict and create breakthroughs, this program helps teams learn how to better listen, engage and achieve collaborative success.

Resolving Disruption

Disruptions are ever present and it’s easy for organizations to get out of tune and out of sync. This interactive experience takes your audience into what disruption really sounds like then transforms that dissonance to resolution. The stunning new composition that is created reveals the wisdom and capability of the audience to achieve their highest potential.

The Pulse of Productivity

In our age of relentless distractions and the increase demands in profits and productivity, time management is of the utmost importance. In this rhythmic journey through of the pulse of the beat, your audience will discover their own rhythm to move forward in a synchronized fashion to victory—as Duke Ellington wrote in his timeless classic, “It Don’t Mean a Thing…If It Ain't Got That Swing!”

The Music of Leadership

This presentation takes your audience on a deep dive into the role of "melody" within music and its’ power as the central message to bring life to your products and services. When leaders "sing" a better future, inspiration resonates across the entire company’s culture.
