    Hugh Ballou - Transformational Leadership

    in Lifestyle

     
    How does a conductor of orchestras and choirs teach leadership - very enthusiastically! Hugh Ballou teaches leaders around the globe how to build synergy with teams and how to build effective processes that bring success to any organization - no matter how small or how large. "I travel around the country and around the world and find that you can change the name of the organization, the location and the type of structure and you will still have the same issues - leaders not leading effectively!"

    Ballou brings 40 years of experience as conductor to his leadership training. "I call the training The Quintessential Leader: Four principles for transforming your organization and your teams, but no one can produce effective teams without fine-tuned leadership skills. I teach business executives how an orchestra conductor brings out the best skill of the players that have been hired. The conductor is a dictator, however, if the conductor hires a good oboe player, then it's best to let that oboe player use his or her skill rather than tell them how to play the oboe!" It sounds silly, however, leaders who micro-manage those whom they lead only receive a fraction of the performance that is ultimately possible. Let the team perform!

    Musical Production “Best Foot Forward”


    Best Foot Forward is a 1941 musical with songs by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane and a book by John Cecil Holm. Produced by George Abbott, after an out-of-town tryout, the production opened on Broadway on October 1, 1941 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, where it ran for 326 performances. It was directed by Abbott, with choreography by Gene Kelly, and starred Rosemary Lane.


     


    Adding a men's singing group to his ensemble, he recruited Robert Shaw, recently out of the Pomona College glee club, to train his singers. Shaw later founded the Robert Shaw Chorale, directed the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and became America's preeminent conductor of serious choral music. The Waring glee club sound can be detected in some Robert Shaw Chorale recordings. Pembroke Davenport (1911–85) was Waring's pianist and arranger.

    NEW 7 HOUR AUDIO SERIES INTRODUCTION - LOOEAMONG AND THE OAHSPE BIBLE PART 3

    in Religion

    Oahspe, the product of automatic writing by a 19th century dentist named John Ballou Newbrough, is a hallucinogenic reworking of cosmology and ancient history. Written in a pseudo-archaic style, the narrative is told from two viewpoints: that of heaven and earth. For a large part of the book there are parallel texts from each point of view on the top and bottom of the page.
     


    There are many moving, lucid passages, dealing with ethical and spiritual topics; however these must be sought out. For a large part, Oahspe remains a sealed book. It uses a private vocabulary which is only partially explained; and describes events of mysterious significance. There are hundreds of pages about the deeds of a vast array of Gods and Goddesses who roam the universe in enormous vessels. OED take note: Newbrough was possibly the first to use the word 'Star-ship'. There are tales of ancient prophets (such as Zoroaster, Jesus, Confucius, Moses, etc.) which have practically no basis in any known mythology or history. The illustrations are remarkable in that they presage surrealism by several decades; maps and views of an incomprehensible internal landscape.
