“The Performance Project” is focused on lessons for leadership and management from live performing arts, music, theatre, and dance, and from sports.
“The Performance Project” will include individual “Profiles in Performance,” workshops, and learning materials.
There are many similarities (and some differences) between management, the performing arts, and sports. The Performance Project explores these with the objective of approving leadership and management effectiveness. One of the most important concepts is the differences that exist in the world of leadership and management versus the world of performance. While the concept applies equally to professional athletes and the performing arts, the Performance Project is going to focus more on the performing arts but will include examples from the athletic world as well.
And in both sports and the performing arts, there is a major different from leadership and management: a significantly higher amount of “practice.” The interesting thing is that we’ve now learned that the concept applies to “mastery” of many things and can be best described by “10,000 Hours.” Because of this simple, but very important concept, this project is devoted to developing a greater “practice/rehearsal” approach to leadership and management effectiveness.
