Reimagining American Identity

Featured Guests: Amiel Handelsman and Jewel Kinch-Thomas

America’s racial reckoning is underway, yet continues to be hotly debated. One novel approach comes from leadership consultants Amiel Handelsman and Jewel Kinch-Thomas: frame it as a hero’s or heroine’s journey. The answer is surprising, simple – and makes a great deal of sense in fostering reckoning…then reconciliation.

The same core principles also apply to leadership, particularly when combined to the fundamental leadership style required by musicians when performing jazz:  the music simply couldn’t be performed without a leader who knows how to forge a team, yet preserve the unique perspectives and talents of each member of the team.
