how it works
first we discuss your objectives
Face The Music is a highly interactive process that brings teams and individuals to the next level of engagement — out of their heads, out of the box, and into a more powerful place of participation.
And while we are definitely entertaining, we are not mere entertainment. Rather, we are a catalyst for change - using the blues, and a variety of musical genres as our team development toolkit - to help organizations become higher performing.
Each Face The Music event is carefully customized to meet the specific needs and goals of the client.
Part of this process includes writing a custom song for your team and organization that pinpoints your core challenge or goal. We’ll perform the song to kick off your event. Your own “theme song” also helps prime team members to embrace the creative process and write their own songs.
Together we assess your current team dynamics, challenges or culture issues and the ultimate outcome you want to see. Depending on your goal, budgetary and scheduling directives, we will recommend the optimal program format for you.
...then we customize
The purpose of any FACE THE MUSIC program is to give your people an opportunity to identify and address their key issues in a creative and memorable fashion, and express them in collaboration with their teammates in song lyrics creation and performance.
Music dissolves barriers, helps air issues, identify common ground, find creative solutions and put a dynamic spin on your team dynamics.
In longer workshops we take time to deep dive into the issues, brainstorm business innovations, look at new processes, and find empowering ways to go beyond the business blues.
