The workshop-concert “The Art of Management ” is offered by Les Violons du Roy to suggest a new model for business management, through an inside look at how an orchestra works. The workshop is structured as a rehearsal, concert, and discussion period to illustrate the dynamic relationship between an orchestra’s conductor and its musicians. It creates a unique opportunity to see management situations in a new light, and can easily be adapted to business conventions, discussion days, annual working sessions, etc.

The workshop-concert experienced provided by Les Violons du Roy is often considered by employees as a significant reward from their employer for the work they accomplish.

The workshop-concert is aimed at all organizations that want their workers to reflect on the values, concepts and benefits of teamwork. It also allows managers to review their role as leaders based on an orchestral conductor working with a group of musicians.

The workshop-concert formula can be adapted to the characteristics and dynamics of each organization. It can be presented to between 20 to 600 people at a time, and the duration can vary depending on the type of interaction between the audience and the orchestra.

What they said about it…

An excellent bridge between management roles and teamwork in a completely different field. A powerful management course.

Congratulations! Passion and reflection make a winning mix. The similarities with personnel management and mobilization are astonishing.

Really interesting! The analogy is striking. The links between an orchestra and a unit or department were made clear. Now our managers just have to become conductors, our employees musicians, and our job tasks a symphony rehearsed and performed in harmony and with enjoyment. Thank you!
