Benjamin Zander – Shining Eyes

Benjamin Zander, who conducted the Boston Philharmonic orchestra for 20 years, orchestrates a lesson in inspiring and mindful leadership. Whether viewed from the perspective of encouraging children in a family environ or that of an office situation, one cannot help being swayed both by the tone of his voice and the truth in his message. There is a leader in all of us waiting to emerge. With a vision in mind, we can unlock the potential of the people we lead in the same way that a sculptor might carve a statuette from a block of marble. Benjamin highlights the importance of learning via mistakes and in doing so awakens the art of possibility in the listener while encouraging the listener to do the same with others.
