 “Being on stage really brought it home for me.  Now when I go to work, I realize it is ‘show time.’
You are only as good as your last performance, so make every work day productive.” 

Here's what people are saying about Leading From Every Chair®:

“I see people having an opportunity to sit in an environment outside of the workplace
and look at their leadership and how they function in the workplace through a different lens.”
– HR Executive, Fortune 100 Company

“That was an ‘aha’ moment for me that people understand, ‘I know my role—not only as an individual,
but I know my role within my team, and then I know my role within the entire organization.”
– Director, Fortune 100 Company

“Very well organized. The day passed so quickly. Everyone has a role and as long as we’re marching
in the same direction and all have the same vision, we can achieve great things.”
– Manager, Fortune 100 Company

“What I saw was the lights going on around my teammates…on what they could do better in the workplace
and also what we could do to improve the culture in our work environment.”
– Director, Fortune 100 Company

“The Memphis Symphony has given me inspiration to be a better leader, a better person.”
– Director, Fortune 100 Company
