Conductors can not work alone and CE philosophy is based upon the unique potential held within the group. To work with others is essential, however to be successful requires thought and discussion. At a personal level, reflection on our thoughts and actions may help impact on our inter-personal skills. At the professional level, re-consideration of the philosophy and methodology of CE may help us define our practice and our role within the team more clearly.
