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!
