Using Music to Activate and Develop Leader Character
- 298 Downloads
We propose music as a methodology to activate and develop character. Music has emerged in its own right as an important area of research linked to a variety of outcomes, many of which are shared interests in the field of leader character including well-being, transformation, and various performance outcomes. We forge critical connections between music and leader character with a focus on how music can be used to activate and develop character. Offering a music-based workshop for 80 MBA’s, we illustrate the core ideas by offering participant insights on the experience and conclude with reflections for management research and practice.
