Leading, Teaching, Being 'Plugged-In'

This is another terrific video from the people at TED. It is about styles of conducting versus 'controlling' and Itay Talgam's charmingly clear delivery along with his interesting ideas that imagine 'music as a model for all phases of human creativity' makes this a must see. In any setting, be it business or music, it is no doubt an 'art' to listen and react in the moment that makes us connect intuitively to our fellow 'players' which in turn makes for 'great teams'.

This should inspire us to reevaluate our roles (and goals) as educators, whether we are working individually or in a group setting. Enjoy!
