All that Jazz

Increase engagement, enable high performance 

Develop critical business skills during this unique workshop experience

Have you seen a jazz group perform?

A  group of good jazz musicians playing together is  collaboration, communication, creativity, trust, innovation, improvisation, problem solving, leadership and customer service,  in constant play.


These are all qualities and skills that we know we need in today’s workplace if we want to be competitive and profitable.


We talk about it, we read about it, we even go to conferences and trainings on it. So why doesn’t it happen?

  • One, it isn’t as easy as it looks
  • Two, we don’t have a clear picture of what it should look like
  • Three, it requires us to change our behaviour

In this unique workshop you will make it happen.

You will see what high performance collaboration looks like. You will learn what makes it possible. And you will experience how to do it. 

After seeing and learning how jazz musicians do it you will be guided through games, activities and reflections that help you change your own behaviour, and experience the change in the group. This form of action learning is fun, highly effective AND sustainable.


Help your business to increase quality, innovation and profitability through:

increasing trust

coping with uncertainty and change

higher performing, motivated teams

developing creative personnel

improving communication and much more …


You will leave this workshop:

  • having seen what a high performing team looks like
  • knowing the most significant driver of performance
  • understanding the 5 elements that fuel high performance, customer delight and profitability
  • with improved listening skills and knowing how to help others improve theirs
  • having learnt and practised how to improve trust
  • with action steps for increasing performance in your team(s)


Bonus: After the workshop you will have:

  • access to a private group where you can ask questions, share your progress and get help tweaking your actions for the best results
  • access to ongoing tips on Jazz and business

Your Facilitators

‘All that jazz’ is a unique and innovative workshop presented by jazz impresario Tony Yoko, in collaboration with professional facilitator Alison Gitelson of CanBeeDone.

(This can also be facilitated as an in house programme).


“We all have the natural human tendency to take the safe route – to do the thing we know will work rather than taking a chance. But that’s the antithesis of jazz, which is all about being in the present. Jazz is about being in the moment at every moment. It’s about trusting yourself to respond on the fly. If you can allow yourself to do that, you never stop learning, in music or in life”.
Herbie Hancock
