Carl Stormer uses jazz, personal stories and actionable frameworks to illustrate how to increase team influence in complex unpredictable situations driven by automation, specialization and syncronicity. In these situations, traditional management techniques are increasingly obsolete because they are based being in control.  Carl introduces robust models to show how to improve interaction quality in teams by being present. Applicable for expert teams in turbulence –basically when out of control. Read Harvard Business Review article at www.tiny.cc/hbrdeb

Jazzcode help high-performing leaders and professionals improve their performance by strengthening their ability to manage complex interactions.  We inspire people too by having a strong message and a personal delivery.

We believe that the essential skills for success in the emerging post-industrial economy include mastery of communicating for impact, solving the right problems in the right way, visualizing complexity, making meetings matter, negotiating for value, and other capabilities that capitalize on complex interactions.  When complex conversations are at the core of what you do, we show you how to improve your effectiveness.

We run intensive, action-oriented workshops for small groups of executives, consultants, analysts, and other professionals who succeed best when they transcend conventional command and control mechanisms.

We also offer talks, often combined with live music, coupled with lectures, to highlight life lessons derived from jazz performances and medical crisis management, in which Carl convenes and explains how a small ensemble of excellent musicians — often playing together for the first time — can create extraordinary, unique musical experiences, seemingly on the fly.

In addition to being an experienced entrepreneur and executive, Carl Størmer is a highly accomplished musician.  Here is his latest recording, Control is for Beginners, released in 2014.  A new recording was made in 2016 with Mike Mainieri, Bendik Hofseth, Bruno Raberg, Jørn Øien, Sidiki Camara and Carl Størmer at legendary Rainbow Studios.
