Orrin Woodward of Team - Conducting

Saw a couple of quotes that reminded me of Orrin Woodward who has put together one of the greatest business teams I've ever seen:

"Conductors of great symphony orchestras do not play every musical instrument; yet through leadership the ultimate production is an expressive and unified combination of tones."-- Thomas D. Bailey

"A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd."-- James Crook

When the crowd tells you something is wrong, it's often best to ignore them if you want to make beautiful music.
