Working in Concert to Amplify Culture & Engagement
As business environments get more complex — more global, more cross-generational, more employees working remotely— we all need to raise our game. But ask yourself this: What’s your team’s anthem? Do you all share the same vision, values, and mission?
Audira Labs® help you unlock effective leadership strategies by fostering a culture of listening, creating alignment, cultivating true collaboration, and being accountable to the team. It all starts with learning to talk less and really tune in to your customers, your partners, and each other.

Inspired by and led by musicians, coaches, business executives, and business school lecturers, Audira takes teams through a learn, practice, and apply model that centers around the issues important to your organization. We support you at every step of the way by inspiring collaboration and aligning individual performance with organizational purpose. Audira Labs harness your power to listen – and unleashes your power to lead.
Get Your Team In Sync
You can have a team of superstars, but without clear roles and responsibilities everyone will sound out of key. This Audira Lab activates the insights and techniques of music producers and conductors to re-tune even the most dysfunctional team. These are engaging, highly experiential exercises that provide attendees with a suite of actionable tools to channel their skills and synchronize their talents, abilities, and strengths.
Build a Culture of Accountability
Interdependence is the hallmark of every successful long-lasting band. This Audira Lab introduces actionable strategies to achieve accountability through a series of music-based exercises that are as memorable as they are entertaining. From powerhouse rock anthems to soul-baring ballads, you’ll never again hear a song without reflecting on all that comes together to make it happen and how it relates to your next team project.
Collaborate to Create
Most industries are rife with disruption, and the companies able to thrive are those with the creative solutions. This Audira Lab leverages specific exercises, techniques, and examples of how performers (teams) and producers (leaders) can work together to turn fledgling bands into supergroups. You’ll learn to trust each other, allow each instrument to shine, and rock an energetic new anthem born of symphonic team spirit.

Case Study: Audira Labs (Music-Infused Workshop)
There’s something ironic about a prosperous marketing communications agency having a communication problem. But that’s exactly what was happening to Queue: this agency had difficulty maintaining successful communication, collaboration and problem solving as it continued to scale. Recognizing the need for improving the executive team’s leadership skills, Queue’s CEO reached out to Audira.
To aid the agency in overcoming its stumbling block, Audira designed and executed a ten-month, music-infused leadership program. As Audira’s signature offering, this program helped enhanced leadership skills like active listening, collaboration, adaptability, accountability, and more, all through the lens of music. Including both 1:1 coaching and monthly team workshops, the agency’s executive team learned, practiced and applied leadership principles, all while tuning in to their team.
Post-program, Queue’s executive team described an immediate, tangible impact on the way they listened, communicated and interacted with their employees. They felt equipped with the tools they needed to continue fostering a more collaborative, creative culture, even as the company expanded.
