Can you imagine leading a team of dozens of people, working together harmoniously, all at one time as a seamless body?  Ulysses James, maestro of the Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic Association, does just that.  In this bonus episode of the Born Leader podcast, we talk about some amazing opportunities he’s had to conduct orchestras in fantastic venues.  And we learn how Ul pays it forward by giving emerging composers the chance to have their original work played by an orchestra – an opportunity to lead a team in something that is not only seamlessly harmonious, but something born of their own creativity.  It’s a perfect example of what we believe here at the Hypatian Institute, everyone is born to lead – we just have different paths towards realizing our passion, purpose and promise.

Thank you to Ul James for speaking with us about sharing music with the public for the benefit of others, and about cultivating new music leaders. If you want to learn more about how Ul creates seamless harmony, listen to the last Born Leader episode in which we speak about creating a culture of respect and excellence.

NOTE: The application period for the Hypatian Institute’s 2018 College Fellowship program begins August 18 and closes December 1.  The Fellowship provides an invaluable opportunity to build your potential, develop an asset-based professional brand, and gain the tools to construct and leverage a high-value network. College Fellows receive coaching, mentoring and resources valued at $3,500, plus modest financial support through the Fellows Fund.  We seek high potential first and second year students with a level of academic success that may not reflect their potential. Participation is free, but Fellows must commit to attending monthly meetings, participating in monthly one-on-one coaching sessions, and engaging in a mentoring relationship.  Keep on the lookout for the application in the next two weeks.

That’s it for this bonus episode of Born Leader. Thank you to Therese Arkenberg, who provides assistance on the business side of this venture. And thank you for listening. We’d love to hear from you in the comments section or on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.

Born Leader is a podcast founded on the belief that everyone is a born leader and there are many paths to discovering your own potential.  We explore leadership through interviews with and profiles about everyday people who demonstrate we’re all born leaders.  Hypatian Institute, Inc. Founder and CEO Gaea L. Honeycutt hosts Born Leader.

In this third episode, Ulysses James, Maestro of the Washington Metropolitan Philharmonic Association discusses applying the lessons of organizational development consuting to growing a small nonprofit. Throughout a Navy career and several years of consulting, Ul James never lost his love of music and, more broadly, the arts.  At the same time, it was those experiences that prepared him to lead and grow an orchestra – both his 20-year career in the military where Ul learned organizational development, and leading his own consulting firm where he put his expertise to work in the private sector.  It was a pleasure to sit down with the unassuming maestro to discuss the similarities between music and the military, the evolution of his career, and his second life leading the WMPA.

In the next episode of Born Leader, we’ll speak with Dr. Irene Trowell-Harris, a retired Major General and the first female and nurse to command a medical clinic, and the first African American to be promoted to General Officer in the National Guard.
