There are so many lessons and challenges in this video...I've watched it four times.
What Benjamin Zander does with this talk, is not only to convey and instill his passion for music in others, but he does so in a way that is amazingly transferable to other areas of our lives. This talk is in essence, exactly what the best music in the world is - a work of art that touches people where they live. It is his passion that jumps through the medium of music, speech and video and impacts the heart and mind of the audience. Does your passion jump through the mediums that you use to communicate individually/organizationally?
Or is the question even more fundamental than that?
In Benjamin's words: "Who am I being, that my [audiences] eyes are not shining?"
