How do you cope when faced with complexity and constant change at work? 

Well, you might be surprised to discover that a lot of the answers lie in the world of jazz. My guest for this episode is Frank Barrett, Professor of Organisational Behaviour and Management at the US Naval postgraduate school in Monterey, California who is also an accomplished jazz pianist. 

In his insightful book,Yes to the Mess: Surprising Leadership Lessons from Jazz, Frank outlines a framework of seven principles gleaned from how jazz musicians play together that can help make us better leaders and team members and lead to greater innovations in our organisations. 

It turns out that Duke Ellington and Miles Davis can teach us a lot about Leadership!
