Team Building with Music

Music makes the difference between delivery and disappointment.

With teams that are now global, virtual, and diverse, leaders need proven tools and methods to bring Teams together – cohesively, consistently, and virtually. The neuroscience behind This is Your Brain on Music drives our understanding of how to get teammates to interact and accelerate business performance quickly. And NeuroScience confirms that technologists’ brains are typically also highly musical.  In fact, before there were “programmers,” IBM hired music majors to “code” their market-forming 360 system.

We have been leveraging music in global teams for 30 years, with many of those stories recorded in our sister site, leadingWithMusic. Our proven best practices help your Team quickly prepare for global delivery at scale. Now as a Certified anthym Consultant, we leverage this one-of-a-kind platform to drive connection & trust for remote, distributed, and hybrid teams. Our approach goes beyond a simple one-time event or offsite that is easily forgotten. We help you build music and media  into your team meetings, events, and communications – so that your relationships are built on a deep and lasting foundation. 

empoweringLEADERS is a Certified anthym Consultant

We supplement the anthym experience with content from our blog site dedicated to LeadingWithMusic, a daily reflection on both topics. With the anthym platform, we drive continued team building and connections beyond any simple one-time event.

The 5 Moment Intro, leverages a combination of life moments and music to knock down artificial walls.  We foster a sense of connection, trust, and belonging amongst your teammates. Whether in person or virtually, anythm for Teams is leading to unparalleled levels of connection and trust. Results so far:

  • 97% see more collaboration and cohesion
  • 9.4/10 NPS score on Improving employee experience
  • 93% see it Drive engagement

Teams also are seeing a reduction in unnecessary and costly voluntary attrition and accelerated time-to-productivity through anythm for Onboarding for new members and within new Teams.

We are also certified in The 5 Behaviors of a Cohesive Team, along with The Team Performance Model for more extensive engagements. And our executive experience ensures that we can hold our own with skeptical leaders who think that this focus on collaboration and culture are “not worth the time.”

Young software developers who are also managers are prone to being head-strong and in need of coaching. At first, I didn't like the things I was hearing from Mark, but he really was challenging me to be a better manager and better direct report. My relationship with my boss (who also attended the class) has never been better as a result of Mark's efforts, and I feel I acquired new skills that help me lead and coach my reports.

Mark and his team provided management training to leaders of the Product development team at Rosetta Stone. Mark quickly gained rapport with the team with his technology background. They valued the presentations provided and felt they were a value add. Mark also provided 1:1 coaching for leaders, including myself. I can attest to the positive effect he had on helping me improve in the areas I selected to focus on.
