people in a vision
The new leadership that we are talking about is about what we would like
to see, where we would like to go, what would work for all of us.
It’s not about winning, it’s about sounding together. Leadership becomes
a completely different thing.
(With student musician) Ja wohl! He’s got it! Bravo!
Rosalind Zander: The new era of leadership has to do with enrolling people, enrolling people in a vision, or an idea, because you’re not going to be able to command them to do that, and also, you need all the resources of everybody in an organization, so to be able to spark possibility in each of the people who work with you, gives you all of them, all of the resources of every person.
Ben Zander: (With musicians) That’s it! Beautiful! Now I would say to you when Schubert writes pianissimo, he means something softer than that Das Wander…
Student: It has to be …?
Ben Zander: Softer.
Student: Softer, vocally, but more intensity.
Ben Zander: I love you! I love you! Exactly!
Ben Zander: (In interview) I think everyone is interested in leadership. The question is what kind of leadership is the most effective. I could galvanize an orchestra. But could I enhance, enliven and awaken an orchestra to be the most that they could be? So the notion arose of the conductor as, not the dominator, but the conductor as conduit for the possibility that people could be the relentless architect of the possibility that others can be.
Ben Zander: (With musicians) Once again, here we go! (Plays)
