As leaders, conductors have the job of cueing entrances, holding fermati, and executing final cutoffs with a flourish. But there is so much more to musical leadership: vision, trust, persuasion, and character are just a few of the concepts explored in Romana M. Wis’ new book, The Conductor as Leader: Principles of Leadership Applied to Life on the Podium. Wis applies the principles business leaders have turned to for years to the task of leading a musical ensemble. The Conductor as Leader addresses how to build connections between people that enhance their quality of life and their musical performance.
