Something to think about

From Phil Dourado:

    "A Harvard Business School study looked at job satisfaction. Orchestra players came just below prison guards. Chamber musicians came in at number 1. What’s the difference? The presence of a conductor."

    Boston Philharmonic Conductor Ben Zander, speaking at Leaders in London 2007

Something to ponder not just when it comes to leadership, but also to how you conduct your meetings (pun intended&@8212;sorry about that). Satisfaction, not to mention learning, may be coming from something other than great keynoters and well-orchestrated events (oops, did it again). Another argument for open-space meetings?

Thanks to Johnnie Moore for the pointer.
