TWEET Strategy for Symphony Orchestra Leadership Model (SOLM)

I recently heard that Philadelphia Philharmonic Orchestra has recently emerged from bankruptcy and has hired a very vibrant conductor to reinvent and reinvigorate the orchestra.

There are distressed companies in America’s Main Street that have an opportunity to become more viable using the leadership model of an orchestra conductor (SOLM – Symphony Orchestra Leadership Model).

Adopting the SOLM mindset is a radical departure from the conventional dominating leadership model. It is a critical necessity for Thinking Bravely, becoming Indivisible as a nation, and liberating act hunger.

Philadelphia Philharmonic Orchestra is uniquely positioned to leverage its turnaround story and launch a campaign to evangelize SOLM in America.


Below is a TWEET of the value creation opportunity for the Philadelphia Philharmonic Orchestra.


  • Turnaround Management Association (TMA)
  • Venture Capitalists
  • Angels

  • Compose musical “elevator pitch” of SOLM for enhancing Corporate Governance and encouraging business towards Thinking Bravely

  • Philaphelphia Philharmonic Orchestra’s community (donors and fans) engage with distressed businesses on Main Street to enhance the emotional bank account of the organizations using SOLM


  • Explore and establish business partnerships for value co-creation with SOLM early adopters who can evangelize SOLM to an audience of distressed businesses
  • Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra establishes a rewards program to energize the fan base to commit to SOLM
  • Raise the bar for conversations to move away from the rhetoric “it is above my pay grade” towards achieving purposeful outcomes by working together in a synergistic manner for Solution Focused Outcomes
