Lessons from the Jazz Ensemble: Designing for collaboration and innovation with a narrated performance by the Mel Brown Septet

The Future of Work is collaborative and improvisational. Traditional, top-down chains of command and career competition are the ways of the past. Status is increasingly based on knowledge, contribution, and level of connection, not just position and power.

During this experience you will learn how to design your own framework and collaborative leadership practices to become a future-oriented leader and team member.

Join us for this unique event, presented by The PEAK Fleet, with a special, storytelling set by the Mel Brown Septet. A Portland jazz icon since 1973, Mel, alongside his bandmates, will demonstrate how to create a culture that sustains successful improvisational and collaborative groups.

A Design Week Portland event, including refreshments, special art installation, and other activities.
