HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW: Expressing Your Vulnerability Makes You Stronger

HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW: Expressing Your Vulnerability Makes You Stronger.  Many conductors have spoken of the importance of being vulnerable as a distinct quality.  Two books come to mind, one by James Jordan, the other by Weston Noble, which discuss this mental aspect of conducting.  “When angry or fearful, step back and be self-reflective. Don’t vilify your boss or co-workers or employees or competitors. Strive to put yourself in the shoes of your perceived adversary. Avoid impulsive statements and actions. Express regret or apology. Gain strength by allowing yourself to be humble and vulnerable.”
