HHL Leadership Workshop

HHL Leadership Workshop

In the beautiful setting of the Mendelssohn Haus in Leipzig, Music & Leadership delivered a leadership workshop for the New Leipzig Talents from the HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management

Looking to explain leadership from a new perspective, Bibi Pelić, founder of Music & Leadership introduced students to the music conductor. Looking to identify what makes a great conductor great, Bibi explained to students how conductors prepare for their leadership journey, develop leadership skills. A lively discussion on leadership style followed with an emphasis on the future of leadership in the digital era.  

Ulrike Michel-Schneider, Director of Business Developement and Strategic Partnerships at Music & Leadership delivered a presentation on Kurt Masur, leading music conductor of the 20th century presenting his unique leadership style especially in regards to Leipzig, the building of the famous Gewandhaus concert hall and events of 1989.

Following this, students particpated in the Music & Leadership interactive workshop. Taking up an instrument, students experienced the dynamic of a music team and in a short period of time learnt a few lessons on communication and leadership in a team. Students also had the opportunity to take up the role of the conductor, experiencing leadership in a new dimension.

Many thanks to HHL for organising the event and the Mendelssohn Haus for hosting it.

'My team and I recently had the great pleasure of taking Bibi's Music and Leadership workshop and highly recommend it. Bibi adjusts her workshop to any kind of team and prepares well while tailoring her presentation and practical exercise to specific needs of the team. The theoretic part was very interesting and prepared the participants well for the practical sessions, which tested and compared the skills of the various leaders. Her style of teaching is very open, interactive and fun. My team has demanded already a second session by her.'


'For those companies or particulars that are looking for a leadership training, I recommend Bibi Pelic services. I attended to one of her leadership and music workshop and it was a great learning experience. Bibi is very professional, enthusiastic and has got deep knowledge about leadership. Some of the knowledge I picked during the training, I can apply it to my work.'


'Bibi has accomplished to bring you insight into management, organization and corporate social interaction thru the lense of music and orquestra direction. Her ideas are presented in accesible, familiar terms everyone can relate to yet provide a new perspective in leadership and management drawing inspiring parallelisms between the two worlds.'
