I’m a highly trained violinist who’s played for over forty years and has a Master's in Music Performance from one of the top schools in the world. Yet, there’s so much I don’t know about violin playing.
If a parent asks me whether their child is gifted and has a chance to go into music like a professional, I would be hesitant to answer. There’s too many unknowns.
On the other hand, I’ve seen well-meaning music lovers with no formal training confidently proclaim a child is a world-class talent and should launch their career, or that a gifted child has little talent and can’t do this and that.
Don’t mistake speaking with confidence with speaking with knowledge.
How do you make sure your team listens to the most knowledgeable voices in your meetings?
Thanks for caring!
