This is an interesting 2009 TED talk on different aspects of leadership given by Israeli conductor Itay Talgam. It was shown to me by a young colleague Tom Theakston in Manchester (who, into the future, will be a name to remember in music circles). I think the interesting thing that comes from this exposition by Mr. Talgam is that leadership is contiguous with the ability to communicate, and that communication at a high level can be manifested in different ways. Conversely, an inability to articulate what is needed at critical junctures in demanding environments almost invariably leads to a lesser outcome. It’s about 21 minutes of your time, but you’ll learn something.
