After reading chapter’s 2 and 3 of Brewer and Westerman (2018), watch the TedTalk, Lead like the Great Conductors, by Itay Talgam (link below). Based on your understanding of classical and humanistic approaches to organizational communication, choose one conductor reviewed in Talgam’s talk and critically analyze their approach to conducting an orchestra. Relate your analysis to one theory/approach discussed in the chapters in order to demonstrate your understanding of the content and your ability to apply it to practical situations.
As you watch the TedTalk, keep the following question in mind: How does a conductor and orchestra correlate to an organization? By doing so, you will be able to identify specific approaches and theory to organizational communication.
