The Liminal Zone #sbs2011

During the Social Business Summit we were also taken into the wonderful world of Jazz. Michael Gold of JazzImpact told us about creativity, innovation, leading and supporting in jazz. Here are some quotes from his talk. Of course he also showed us what he meant by playing wonderful pieces of jazz and getting us on our feet, out of our comfort zone...
Here are some quotes:
Lead and support are the two core roles in organizations and Jazz bands.

The Liminal Zone: threshold between what we know and don't know. Jazz constantly moves back and forth over that boundary.
Business should as well.

Elements of a good Jazz ensemble are:
A utonomy
P assion
R isk
I nnovation
L istening (listening is key)
