Episode #152: Making Leadership Tangible: Analogies in the Arts with Daniel Wachter-Part 1

This week Mike kicks off another special series with his long-time friend and mentor Daniel Wachter, Chief Commercial Officer of Chromatic Technologies, Inc. This series will provide another level of wisdom about leadership, using performing and visual arts to understand what it takes to be a great leader. 

Listen now to Daniel’s brilliant analogy of leading an organization and the conductor-composer-orchestra relationship. (6:05)

Daniel will interview composers from around the world to talk about what it takes to lead a large group of specialists to create a beautiful product-the performance.  In his series, some of the topics he will discuss are: 

  • Breaking silos
  • Rehearsing
  • Keys to listening
  • Limitations
  • Taking risks
  • Making mistakes (8:25)

Daniel also shares the story of how a single experience with visual art transformed his leadership approach.  This is another example of the revelations that Daniel will share in his new series. (22:00)

Leadership is a conceptual topic that can be described as philosophy in practice.  Daniel’s new series, Making Leadership Tangible: Analogies in the Arts, will take the esoteric aspects of leadership and make them tactile and sensory, helping leaders think about their roles in new ways. 

Now in its 126th season, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra reaches audiences locally, nationally, and globally with innovative and inspiring programs. For more information about how you and your business can support the CSO’s performances and free education programs, please visit
