The Choir Conductor

I still have a journal of lots of my choir conductor’s stories from class. I’m actually performing in a small play with him soon. This leadership image idea is from Dr. Tim Elmore’s Habitudes series and the analogy is fantastic.

As a choral singer, a conductor is only guiding and harnessing the contributions that singers create. It’s taught me so much about collaborative and individual leadership.
