Sometimes metaphors offer a wonderful way to see ourselves and how teams function from a new perspective. Developing the ability to contribute to the sound of performance is further strengthened when it is connected to your personal ability to shift quickly from one point of view to another or to use conflict as a source of creative expansion.

In this show, Dawna talks to Dr. Brian Fraser, lead provocateur of JazzThink, a company which uses the workings and wisdom of jazz to provoke people to brilliant leadership and teamwork.

Prior to his 2002 launch as a speaker, facilitator, leadership coach, and seminar leader, he was the dean of the Presbyterian college at the University of British Columbia and taught leadership and organizational development at Vancouver School of Theology.

The Evolutionary Provocateur bi-monthly show is for executives, managers, and supervisors (OR for leaders at all levels) who have noticed that it is not what you know but who you are that has the biggest impact.

Dawna Jones, the show's host, believes that by raising awareness and understanding we can make a quantum leap to a new level of innovation in business - but it has to be done collectively.

What better way to do it than by provoking the evolution of how you see yourself and your role!
