John Ryskowski, JFR Consulting and Drum-Talks
Assume you have no authority, no control over anyone or anything, and you need to inspire members to perform as never before. Who are you? “Oh, you must be the drummer, set your kit up next to the piano dude.” When searching for helpful techniques to improve our leadership skills, sometimes the best place to look is to a completely unrelated field. Did you know the techniques used by a big band drummer parallel those of a successful team leader? On the surface the big band drummer is just another “side-man” without any authority or control. Once the music starts the drummer can invoke confidence and inspire individual members and the entire band to play like never before.
Sit back and enjoy this unique keynote address by John Ryskowski as he provides live demonstrations of the techniques drummers use to support the band in their goal to sound great. He will perform an actual big band chart then deconstructed one section at a time. As the drumming techniques are revealed, so are opportunities to realize new perspectives on team leadership
John Ryskowski has been helping organizations transform themselves since 1989. He is particularly interested in the social entanglements that preclude progress as organizations work to create their vision and achieve goals. He also happens to have been playing drum set professionally for the last 35 years. John holds a MA in Education from California Lutheran College, a BA in Mathematics from California State University Northridge, is a Problem Solving Leadership graduate, a CMMI High Maturity Lead Appraiser, CSM, yoga practitioner, electric muscle care evangelist, and the creator of drum-talks.com.
