This article on leadership struck a chord with me. Professor Gernot Schulz, conductor and former member of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, gives an insight into how he leads his team (orchestra) to produce the highest performance standards every time.

There are lots of useful messages to take away for all leaders to apply in their own work environment. Take a look below.
