I would like to get across to the average corporate employee that they could be more successful if they thought and acted more thinking more like an orchestra musician.
One idea was that the cover could show people seated on a grand stage as musicians do in the set up of a large orchestra. Dressed in tails but instead of instruments in the various sections, each section would be in business suits or their typical work wear (HR, Finance, Marketing, Sales Production, Purchasing, R&D) would have something to represent their work, i.e. a laptop for some, maybe a calculator for finance/ accounting etc. That may prove to be to complex.
Idea two is to do something with there are only a few people on the cover 5 or 6 people ( cartoonish or animated- maybe on a plain or white background) whose dress and whatever they are holding makes them look like corporate folks who think more like classical musicians. i.e they could be seated or standing, wearing tails or tuxedos but holding normal office things, a briefcase, open laptop, clipboard, etc. instead of instruments. It'd be great to have their body language (movement) show that they are listening or connecting with each other.
