Yes. Performance of any creative skill requires several psychological tools that can translate into the workplace setting. Adaptability one the more crucial skills, which is brought on by uncertainty and keeping an open eye/mind for an unforseen resolution is something that everyone benefits from when in need of thinking outside the box. While I haven't played a team sport in awhile, being in a band provides similar socialization skills and cognitively demands a similar mindset

Yeah, I can imagine a band offers a similar setting. I guess it is the same with everything involving communication and teamwork, in a way or another 🤔
