Let's Talk

We want to help you and your organization move to the next stage.


CultureSync Partner and USC Marshall School of Business professor Ken Perlman and USC Thornton School of Music professor Ron McCurdy have teamed up to bring you new leadership and culture tools using jazz to demonstrate them in a way you can see, hear, and feel.  The Jazz of Leadership teaches you to feel and hear the difference between deliberate collaboration, mandated compliance, and passive acquiescence. 

No musical training or knowledge of jazz is required to understand, experience, appreciate, and apply the lessons from jazz to your leadership, team, and organization.
