Telios Symphony

Behavioral based leadership strategies for you and your organization

Telios Symphony

Telios Symphony is an integrated methodology involving every level of your organization. It is a fully researched model with over a decade of global implementations.

Why do we call it Symphony?

An orchestra depends on each musician perfecting their part. The conductor instinctively knows how to bring out the best of each individual ultimately delivering beautiful music.

Conductors | Leaders

The conductor conveys the feeling and the vision of the music and unlocks the potential of each musician. Likewise, leaders in organizations must clearly communicate purpose and vision and unlock the potential of each stakeholder.

Musicians | Stakeholders

Professional musicians tirelessly practice in private to perfect their instrument. This ensures that the orchestra performs flawlessly and creates beautiful music. All stakeholders in an organization must be willing to do the same so that they can perfect their own responsibilities and ensure the success of the organization.

Practice | Behavior

Orchestras depend on the conductor and each musician aligning their personal behaviors with those of the other members. Organizations also depend on their leaders and each individual developing the interpersonal skills and behaviors that accelerate the growth of the business model.
