Publisher's Summary

Roger Nierenberg, a veteran conductor, is the creator of The Music Paradigm, a unique program that invites people to sit INSIDE a professional symphony orchestra as the musicians and conductor solve problems together. He captures that experience in Maestro: A Surprising Story about Leading by Listening, a parable about a rising executive's tough challenges.

The narrator befriends an orchestra conductor and is inspired to think about leadership and communication in an entirely new way. Truly great leaders, whether conductors striving for perfect harmony or CEOs reaching for excellence, act with a vision of their organization at its best.

A great parallel between leadership in corporates and in orchestra

Interestingly enough I meant to buy Itay Talgam book called the ignorant maestro, however copyright limitations stopped the purchase. Instead, I bought this book since it is pretty much the same notion.

I must say I was pleasantly surprised and happy to have come across this wonderful book.

The parallel is drawn in a clear way, the examples are vivid and the message taken is so valuable. I must praise the narrator whose skills contributed largely to the joy of this book.

Great Concept

What I really liked about this book was the focus on using a diversity of talent and perspective to create a great and effective organization by getting people to really listen to each other and incorporate the other's perspectives into their thinking.
