February 21 2013 Daan Admiraal gave a
lecture at the VU University Medical Centre Amsterdam VUMC
on: Co-operation, insights and
opinions of a conductor on teamwork and leadership.
There were 2 central assertions.
1. For good ensemble playing not
only your own part must be fully under command
but a deep knowledge of the parts
of the other players is an essential requirement.
2. Every organisation needs
enlightened leadership. Narcissistic egos in the short term
can achieve great results but in
the long term will be a burden for the organisation.
