Orpheus provides a unique perspective on the practice of leadership that can unlock creativity, agility, and collaboration at your organization.
The world renowned Orpheus Chamber Orchestra has been evolving its radically creative and collaborative approach to teamwork for 50 years.
Now we’re sharing our best practices and approaches with leaders and teams that want not only better results, but more fulfilling work experiences.
Orpheus offers a window into new ways of leading, creating and collaborating that have the potential to transform how and why people work together.
Since 1972, Grammy-award winning Orpheus Chamber Orchestra has traveled the world drawing audiences eager to see and hear us perform.
For classical music lovers Orpheus is known for exceptional performances that give new life to classical pieces. We have produced 70+ albums as an orchestra and in collaboration with world-class soloists.
The magic of Orpheus is not just in our sound, it’s the fact that everything is created and managed collaboratively.
Traditionally, orchestras are led by a conductor who decides what they will play, who will play and how they will play.
In Orpheus there’s no single conductor who owns the creativity and leadership.
Every single musician is fully empowered. Everyone owns the artistic vision. Everyone rotates in and out of roles. Everyone is a leader all the time.
Rather than following one person’s direction, the musicians tune into and respond to each other in the moment as they are playing.
How does a group of 30+ people, each with their own ideas, consistently innovate and perform in a way that delivers something extraordinary?
Most teams want to do this, but get stuck.
Orpheus spent 50 years evolving a roadmap with systems, practices and skills to make this high level of creative collaboration possible.
Orpheus Leadership Institute trains leaders and teams in the methods that have made it so successful. We share not just our roadmap, but the key philosophies behind it so that you can adapt it to work for you. We focus on what’s most essential for equipping teams with the tools and mindsets they need to collaborate and create in complexity.
Our trainings focus on the foundational elements of the Orpheus creative method. Your team will learn through a combination of guided observation of Orpheus musicians in a creative session, interactive experiences and QA with the musicians.
All programs are customizable and designed to be delivered virtually or in-person.
