USA Today today has an interesting interview with Wynton Marsalis. Recently named one of America’s best leaders by Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government and US News & World Report, Marsalis shares his ideas about improvisation at work — and what leaders can learn from jazz.
He touches on the concepts of respect, integrity, and trust — as well as meritocracy. About 10 years ago, the Fast Company touched base with Gary Burton about similar topics and themes. The two pieces might make useful parallel reads.
