"Innovation is CREATIVITY that ships" (Steve Jobs). Not a PowerPoint slidedeck.

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.
