How music informs leadership for HR head

Musician. Composer. Former rock band member.

Meet Abbott's head of HR.

Steve Fussell has been playing the piano since he was 6 years old and spent a number of years rocking out with a band. Music is simply part of who he is. In the picture above, he's composing a song for his daughter using a couple of pianos at once.

Recently, Steve wrote a blog about how music informs leadership.

"Music is a unifying language," he wrote. "No matter where you're from, what you do or how acoustically adept you may be – everyone can feel a beat or be moved by a song."

The parallels for leadership are endless, he says. But he picked just a few to start the conversation.

Musician or not, take a look, and feel free to share your thoughts.
