Classic Leadership Skills You Should Apply to Your Social Life

Classic Leadership skills from Lifehacker.  While they talk about how to apply these skills to your social life, they fit equally well for your choir as well: “You can’t expect to find anyone you feel truly close with if you hide who you really are. Full honesty might scare you, but the greatest leaders use it to convince others that they’re actually great. They don’t have to say it, but demonstrate it through who they are. When you do the same in your personal relationships, you may weaken some but you’ll strengthen others—the ones that matter—far more.”  Many conductors stress this idea of being vulnerable, such as Weston Noble and James Jordan, and it’s always good to be reminded of it.
