As an organizer of leadership development experiences, I appreciate the way Bryan Smith, Matthew Thomas, and the New House Production team worked with us to create a series of workshops that were aligned to the overall development objectives. Their unique way of tying music to leading has provided the participants with a new perspective and appreciation!

The experiential nature of New House's workshop was a real departure from the norm.  Their music-to-business analogue was extremely impactful as was the interactiveness of the group exercises. Our ‘band’ gained great perspective from stretching outside our comfort zones.

The workshop was an excellent complement to the content of the overall program I was attending.  It helped me break from the same-old-same-old way of learning new concepts and allowed me to unlock parts of my brain that I don’t get to use in my day-to-day job.

Matt and Bryan were able to engage a group of experienced leaders and, in a few hours through musical experience and music exercises, turn that group into a high-performance team. I was able to very rapidly internalize the importance and learn to: listen more attentively, pay attention to visual cues and support each other in order to have the final objective achieved, a full musical performance! These behaviors are normally well understood and known in members of leadership teams but the experience I went through consolidated their importance on the final outcome.

The program led by New House Productions at our leadership development workshop was perfectly unique yet related to the teamwork and leadership journey that we were going through. They opened my eyes to being more perceptive about others speed, tone and understanding which has helped me to be a more effective leader and communicator. As well, how a team working together for a common objective is significantly more impactful than the sum of separate parts.

Indeed a different training on leadership, how different music can be depending on how team members are interacting! Common vision, same purpose, team spirit gives the best music. Thanks for the experience!
