  • Choosing ignorance might seem a terrible quality toexhibit in your workplace a sure path down the stairsand out the corporate door. But stick with me here andsee how it leads you upward. You ll understand whygreat leaders embrace ignorance and use it to elevatetheir people to new heights of achievement. A conductor in front of his orchestrais an iconic symbol of leadership but what does atrue maestro actually do to enable the right sort ofcooperation among his players, leading to an excellentperformance? If you think his primary job is makingsure the musicians play the right notes, prepare to besurprised. For twenty years, in addition to conducting orchestrasaround the world, Itay Talgam has been a conductorof people for companies large and small, forCEOs of Fortune 500 companies as well as startupentrepreneurs, and beyond. Drawing on his decades ofexperience on the podium, he teaches nonmusicianshow conducting really works and how the conductor sart can help leaders in any field. In his lectures (including an acclaimed TED talk)and now in this book, Talgam shows why imposingyour vision on your people is likely to backfire. Greatconductors may know in advance how they want apiece to be played, but they make room for the creativityand passion of their musicians. They respect thegap between the baton and the instruments. Theyfocus more on listening than on speaking. And theyembrace their own ignorance, knowing that othersmay have better ideas than the conductor can imagine. Talgam explores the nuances of leadership bydescribing the distinctive styles of six world-famousconductors: the commanding Riccardo Muti, thefatherly and passionate Arturo Toscanini, the calmRichard Strauss, the gurulike Herbert von Karajan, the dancing Carlos Kleiber, and the master of dialogueLeonard Bernstein. All took different approaches tothe age-old leadership dilemma: how to maximizeboth control and creative freedom at the same time. 'The Ignorant Maestro 'will empower you to helpyour own team make even more beautiful music.Talgam s anecdotes and insights will change the wayyou think about listening, humility, and the path tounpredictable brilliance.'
