The most powerful leader is one part of the team

orchestra conductor one part of the teamThe truly powerful leader understands that they are joining the individual strengths of a team into a common purpose.

The leader is the organizer, the arranger, the conductor. Like a world class symphony orchestra, it takes a group of individuals playing their part of the same song with their particular instrument to create beautiful music. The musicians have the violins, oboes, trumpets, and tympani – the conductor has the baton.

The great leaders are like the best conductors – they reach beyond the notes to reach the magic in the players.” – Blaine Lee

 Leadership is achieving success through the actions of others. The truly powerful leaders set the stage so the strengths of the team can ring loud and clear.  The leader’s success is the success of each member of the team.

 A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.” – Max Lucado
