Teamwork: source of inspiration music
For me, music is the greatest source of happiness and motivation that exists. When my mother asked me as a child, what I wanted to become, I said with conviction: "Rockstar". What I do today is not that far from this definition for me.
Besides being a public performer, of course, music is an integral part of my life: music is my metaphor and source of inspiration for understanding and addressing directly the issues and goals that are underway within a company.
How to properly organize a team
Because: music touches, makes you happy, joyful and inspired. And this is by far not only for the private sector. With the help of the music, employees can motivate themselves as a team to complement each other, to understand each other and achieve the set goals together.
And above all with the appropriate conviction, enthusiasm and a passion for work. Because similar to an orchestra Company and their employees work together as a team. And that includes harmony, mutual understanding, joy and enthusiasm at work.
Who makes the sound?
The sound makes the music. But who makes the sound? Namely the tone in the company. The sound does not arise by itself, it is generated. Of many different soloists, also called co-workers. Through their activities and communication.
And the sound that these soloists produce is penetrating and heard from the market. What are the sounds of the market when the soloists act as real singles, and each plays what is going through his head?
Music that no one wants to hear
Surely a kind of music that no one likes to hear. Uncoordinated, missed missions, sometimes too shrill, or too soft. This is entrepreneurial music that does not deserve this name for me. Harmony and harmony? Wrong!
There is no trace of an entire, well-rehearsed entrepreneurial orchestra and the joy of working. In order to achieve this, the soloists must become harmonious orchestras, which together provide top performances.
Make soloists a harmonious orchestra
A good metaphor for this are eight tools that help portray the characters of people and their diversity. Each instrument has certain characteristics associated with it, and each instrument needs other tools in the team around it to be at their best.
The mutual support promotes existing characteristics and compensates for missing qualities. This requires that employees be used where they are really good.
The "revolution" of the strengths
It is a very important element of successful and motivating cooperation that employees are deployed according to their strengths at the right place. Only in this way can they reach their full potential and provide high-quality work.
I call this the "revolution of strengths" within the company. HR departments and executives are also called upon to think and use people according to their inclinations and real strengths.
Not everyone is right for every job
And not because the job description of a position is suddenly expanded and changed, automatically assuming that the job holder is the right one for the new tasks.
If you do not look twice at the position and do not change teams according to the latest requirements, you will never have the entrepreneurial success that truly harmonious teams are looking forward to working together and complementing each other.
Where the harp is, harp must go!
Nor can a coworker, who is introverted and only sit in the office and want to make statistics, suddenly mutate into a lively salesman. In the orchestra this seems quite clear and logical. In everyday business, this has sometimes not really penetrated.
There, employees are suddenly to occupy positions that they do not master and which make them above all not happy. And nothing will happen with the motivation: the eyes do not shine, they become dull, joyless and the whole orchestra and the sound suffer massively under it.
Coherent teams of equal voices
This often happens when executives do not concentrate on their orchestra - just like conductors - but only look at their audience. Also, managers who look only outwards may overlook what is going on in the company and is required.
Der Dirigent, die Führungskraft hat die Aufgabe, seine Teams so zusammen zu stellen, dass ein stimmiges und freudvolles Miteinander entsteht, in dem sich die Teammitglieder ergänzen und unterstützen.
Strengthen the strengths of the employees
The conductor or leader who knows how to bring out the "strengths" of the people through an optimal lineup will create beautiful entrepreneurial music.
Sounds that automatically make the eyes of employees glow. Sounds that the market likes to listen to. Sounds the market trusts. All that is created by conductors, if they are leaders. True. And agree.
