Too Many Chiefs and Not Enough Indians

Too many cooks in the kitchen.

Chances are you have heard these sayings more than once.

Chances are you laughed and forgot about them.

Nothing could be truer, however, in leading music rehearsals.

The guitarist thinks the tempo is too slow.  A bass is certain the tenors are flat.  The first violinist insists that the phrase should be played “just so.”

You are the chief, not them.  And they know it.

Just remind them and move on.

Your blood pressure and the quality of the music will improve immensely.

How do you lead when your leadership choices are being challenged?
