We are the backbeat to deep change and innovative thinking.

If it’s creative, innovative, and dynamic institutions and communities you’re after, spend some memorable time with the musicians of Getting in the Groove and learn the difference between improvising and winging it. Jazz, grounded as it is in a rigorous individual and collective discipline, figured out a long time ago how diverse and highly interdependent groups of people can perform collaboratively. Jazz has put the theory of synergy into practice.A customized Getting in the Groove event, tailored to your special needs and interests, will:

  • Demonstrate concretely, in a stimulating and provocative way, the dynamics of collective performance.
  • Show how temporary teams can come together, blend diverse skills and perform effectively and creatively.
  • Reveal, with particular focus on the role of leadership, the organizational conditions that must be in place for the effective management of change and for people to perform in conditions of uncertainty.

“I used to think that running an organization was equivalent to conducting a symphony orchestra. But I don’t think that’s quite it; it’s more like jazz.”
