The Jazz of Leadership
The Jazz of Leadership is coming in 2024! Ken Perlman and Dr. Ron McCurdy are collaborating on a book that brings you new tools to use for developing yourself and your teams. This book teaches you to feel and hear the difference between deliberate collaboration, mandated compliance, and passive acquiescence.
The Jazz of Leadership demonstrates and deconstructs essential leadership tools for high performing teams including:
- Aligning around shared goals and objectives
- Leveraging capable talent
- Building a strong culture of collaboration
- Using multiple methods of communication and feedback
- Developing skilled leaders that empower individuals and enable ensemble teams
No musical training or knowledge of jazz is required to understand, experience, appreciate and apply the lessons from jazz.
Most leaders agree that culture is the critical factor in performance, but can’t define it, measure it, or change it. As a result, the few organizations that get culture right seem magical, and people who try to replicate their success usually end up frustrated and cynical. This book shows two simple steps — diagnosis and then the best treatment that leaders take to build cultures that can do things most people think are impossible: out-innovating, outperforming, creating an immunity to scandals, and having mountains of fun in the process.
The Three Laws of Performance
Though most of us aren’t aware of it, we have a future that’s already been written. Our future is written by hopes, fears, dreams, expectations, and decisions made about life. In the same way, organizations have futures written by history, circumstances, culture, aspirations, successes; and failures. These already-written futures determine the level of performance for individuals and organizations. The question is, how can these futures be rewritten?
