IKON | Leadership, Influence, and Creating in a Cultural Storm

Mark Sayers

Tracing a line from Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring to Shostakovich’s Seventh Symphony, Mark Sayers (Facing Leviathan, The Road Trip That Changed the World) weaves a meditative tapestry that includes a ballet riot, early city planners, the paintings of Manet, ancient creation myths, the Third Reich, a bipolar diagnosis, having twins, and the musical response to a three-year military siege and suggests how creative leadership can successfully navigate between the cultural poles of order and chaos.
