The Performance Project

The Performance Project | Performance Project | Scoop.it

The Performance Project” is focused on lessons for leadership and management from live performing arts, music, theatre, and dance, and from sports.

James Schreier's insight:

The following link is to a song, "Why" from "Tick, Tick, Boom!"  Thanks to Michael Ingersoll, (Under the Streetlamp, Jersey Boys) for giving me:  "Over and over and over til we got it right."  It's clearly the theme song for this topic and The Performance  Project.  Message to leaders and managers:  PRACTICE! PRACTICE! PRACTICE!

Practice for Tough Situations as You’d Practice a Sport | Performance Project | Scoop.it

Sadly, corporate training for these situations is notoriously ineffective. We learn new skills in safe situations with few repercussions for mistakes, yet we often have to perform in pressure-filled situations with the potential for great consequences. Our scripted remarks are of little use in unscripted and unpredictable situations.

Profile – Review: John Michael Coppola

Profile – Review:  John Michael Coppola | Performance Project | Scoop.it

I had the opportunity to spend almost three hours with John Michael Coppola on Saturday, 1/23/16.  John Michael was in the Chicago cast of "Jersey Boys."  The was three times more valuable than even my initial high expectations.  One of the key things I learned from John Michael was a clarification of the role (and importance) of "swings" in a Broadway show.  Being prepared to step into any one of multiple roles with very little notice is a message every professional needs to know.  Another great learning point from the performing arts.
