  1. WOW!!! So many parallels here with other aspects of life…. It really is all about the relationship. I aspire to do so much of this when I work at liberty with my horse, as well as on the dance floor. Thank you!!!

  2. I would not use parallelisms between tango and business because business is created as power relationship between persons, but tango is created with no power exchanges, but emotions, sentiments or love.
    For the rest I agree with the presenter. Good speech.

  3. I wished all followers in tango tried at least once to do the role of the leader. It's not easy to give the indication and the initiate the move all in a timely manner, specially if she clings on to you like a deadweight XD!

  4. Wow! What an unique and creative perspective of leadership and Tango! I found this video when I was searching Tango. I have been in a leadership role and learning about leadership over 10 years. I first knew Tango was when I first entered the college. I always love ballroom dances and took some basic lessons in waltz, cha cha, ramba, etc. I fell in love in the Tango dance, yet never got an opportuniy to explore it further until last month. So far I learned some basic steps about Tango including there are different types of Tango. I found myself naturally enjoyed the music and the dance. It is fascinating that my most favorite dance can be linked back to what I do at work. I have listened to it 3 times and I am sure I will listen to it more. It is very helpful for both my Tango learning and leadership growth. Thank you very much!

  5. Yes, please, embrace uncertainty and foster creativity. Stop talking about "leading" and "following" in the dance, because this is what leads to wrong conclusions and what makes no sense at all when you really think about a relationship. Collaboration and interaction it is, yes, you don't need to specify different roles to learn that and to do that!

  6. What a voice she has, I am mesmerized by it. I watched it 3 times and only now I am getting to understand what she is actually talking about. By the way the topic and presentation of the topic is very interesting. Well done beautiful voiced lady Sue Cox 🙂

  7. I value the follower when she puts the handbrake on when I may seem to move backwards into danger. Think Risk Management

    Musicality: Macro (Leader) Micro (Follower).. Like in an orchestra perhaps with a touch of Jazz improvisation on the details. But somebody has to decide on overall direction otherwise there is chaos

  8. When I saw this YouTube I assumed it was a load of pretentious rubbish. But as a London Business School Alumnus and Argentine Tango dancer I gave it a go. I am glad I did. Obviously there are some things I did not agree with but well worth 18 mins of my time.

    Though a follower going off unexpectedly at a tangent as demonstrated might be a bit troublesome especially if the music is suggesting something else – in Tango and in Business.

    I see the Tango (and business) Leader as managing on a Macro level. The Follower manages the Micro steps.
