At first glance, jazz and career transitions don’t seem to have much in common.  But a closer look reveals fascinating commonalities: both are fundamentally about relationships, exploration, and navigating change.  In this unique presentation, international leadership consultant, speaker, and professional jazz musician Dr. Michael Brenner of Right Chord Leadership shares a new paradigm for those in transition—one based on the sounds, rhythms, and principles of this great American art form.  Leveraging decades of performance experience, Michael (with saxophone in tow) will demonstrate how viewing one’s career journey like a jazz musician opens new ways of thinking, engaging, and problem-solving. But Michael won't be the only one playing--the audience will get a chance to jam too!

By attending this session, you will learn:

  • The four dimensions of emotional intelligence and the important role they play in career transitions
  • How to become more aware of self-limiting beliefs and overcome them
  • How to regulate emotions for better outcomes
  • How to increase the capacity to empathize with others
  • How to forge trusting, fruitful relationships through listening and engaged collaboration
