The story of Rhythms of Influence

Rhythms of Influence is based on the 5-step program structure that Ju Linares and I developed for our interactive rhythm programs.  We typically work with adult groups in workplace or conference situations — meaning participants are generally total beginners whose purpose is other than “drumming.”  People’s reactions range from “Wow, cool!” to “We’re doing what?”

Our job is to move each group as far toward the client’s business goals as we can in the time available.  That means we need a rapid process of group development, both musically and interpersonally.  Mixing our own experience with ideas from Arthur Hull, HealthRHYTHMS, TaKeTiNa, and general group development theory, our 5-step process was born.

Rhythms of Influence takes about 20 minutes to read. Treat yourself to its rhythmic insights today.  We'd love to hear what you think!
