The Rhythm of Leadership

In order to be successful, the organisation needs different people: leaders that provide stability and continuity in work, the ones who successfully respond to challenges of turbulent environment and the ones who initiate the changes.

Did you hear about “the drummer syndrome”? That is a term that comes from rock music, but it can often be seen in business too. What is it actually about?

One rock band consists of different people. Usually the leadings are the singer and the guitar player or the singer and the keyboardist.

The drummer and the bassist are rarely in the first row, almost never. After a while it happens that the drummer leaves the band for some reason. In that kind of situations, you can often hear “So what? They will find someone else. He didn’t sing, didn’t write songs, wasn’t in the centre of attention”. And instead of finding the replacement, the band falls apart.

Drummers are often patient, unobtrusive people who don’t tend to be at the forefront; instead they have everything under control. By doing that, they unobtrusively dictate the band pace.

Who are the drummers of your team? Who dictates the pace, who follows it and who is trying to accelerate it?

Meet the most innovative approach in leadership development – Coaching through the art of sound!

Keeping these principles enables us to communicate effectively with other people and solve the most complicated problems successfully.

Please join me on the journey to High Impact Communication and Problem Solving, with the use of a mysterious … Fish Puzzle J

In order to solve the puzzle, you will firstly need to create a positive group atmosphere, then start thinking outside the box all the time keeping in mind that you will all have to energize and motivate each other. J

Nate Regier

CEO of Next Element Consulting

x
  1. I am:

I am Nate Regier, the founder, and CEO of Next Element Consulting. I am a missionary kid and a recovering psychologist! My vision is to bring more compassion to every workplace in the world. I have spent my life pursuing simple and effective methods to engage differently in order to bring more compassion to every relationship.

Dragoljub Đuričić

Drummer

x
  1. I am:

Dragoljub Đuričić, a follower of my own rebelliousness that comes out from some kind of intuition. I consider intuition as a reflection of intelligence and not as a sixth sense or witchcraft. It usually starts from nowhere and never ends! I accept everything as an infinity. I have, in front of me, a view of a cosmos, which never comes back to me. It just sails on and on….

  1. My superpower is:

Smile! That is the picture I believe the most, even when it is false. My only job is to recognize it and that’s not always an easy task. It’s more appealing to smile than to frown.

  1. An emoticon that describes me:

🥁

  1. At the playground I am:

I am certainly a player of infinity! In life, everything is easier through the game, whether on a seesaw, a swing, or with a ball, right?

The law of nature offers us an unmistakable guideline we should all follow. When we pour a bucket of water, it always finds its way to flow away. I do not accept that there is a hopeless situation, there is always a way out. Just find it! Using the laws of nature for living and behaving is our repay for the privilege called life. By accepting those laws, we are confirming that we have repaid our debt to the cosmos properly. And that is what cosmos expects from us.

  1. My secret formula:

The rhythm of life that carries me, may not always be in my control, even though it brings me where I wanted from the beginning. That makes me happy. Happiness is relative. While living life on your own terms in correspondence with your values and fairness with your attitude. In that case, the deception of “happiness” feels good. It stimulates you. It gives you strength. It helps you to skip the obstacles easily. Smile combined with radiate energy easily opens even the lead door.
