Science of music brings SongDivision’s new Learning & Development program to life
Global people engagement company SongDivision collaborated with Learning and Development experts Synaptic Potential, to create Leadership Track – an accessible, in-depth, fun program that inspires teams to bond, and elevates leadership capabilities.
Launched globally this week, the dynamic six-part program is led by L&D specialists and world-class musicians. It combines the science of music, with cutting-edge thinking, to support leaders to engage their teams to achieve results.
Songwriting is the experiential core of Leadership Track. Participants deep dive into a series of conversations, then work together to capture key takeaways in song lyrics. This musical co-creation anchors learning, and the final song is recorded by the musicians – a powerful experience and an ongoing reminder of lessons learned.
Andy Sharpe, Founder and CEO, SongDivision, said for the past two decades, Fortune 500 companies have engaged SongDivision to anchor learning and deepen team engagement using the science of music.
“The pandemic has redefined the necessary skills of a ‘great’ leader. The needs of employees have changed and hybrid working models are now the norm which impacts how team members bond, build trust, and develop relationships.
“Leadership Track is specifically designed for the challenges teams are facing today. It is easy to engage with, doesn’t require weeks of planning, and it evokes a richer understanding of workplace relationships and teamwork.
“It has been in the works since 2020, when we knew the bonds of teams would be forever shifted. We’ve amalgamated the power of music and almost 20 years in business, with the proven, neuroscience-based techniques developed by our partner, prominent L&D experts Synaptic Potential.
“The combination is like nothing you’ve seen before,” said Sharpe.
Created with time-poor executives in mind, and team members working onsite or remotely, the program is made up of six 90-minute sessions which explore the fundamental aspects of functional leadership in the workplace. These are: team cohesion, storytelling, belonging, feedback, creativity, and engagement.
Richard Case, Partner, Centerview Partners, recently completed the first session in the Leadership Track titled ‘Team Cohesion’.
“Our best work is done when we work together. As such, SongDivision’s Leadership Track underscored for us the importance of spending time on our team cohesion – which is critical to our success. As we are short on time, the program was thoughtfully curated to deliver the maximum impact in a way that was content-rich, engaging and, dare I say, fun!” said Case.
Since 2020, SongDivision has hosted over 2,000 virtual team bonding events globally, making them one of the most successful corporate event companies of the COVID era.
