It's in their eyes

If you haven't watched this TED talk on Music and Passion by Benjamin Zander, do it.

Benjamin Zander is a conductor. According to him, the job of a conductor is to make other people powerful. His measure of success is whether the eyes of the people he conducts are shining.

If you manage people, please think about this.

  1. Such a good point. I don't manage people but I guess my family counts and seeing their eye's sparkle is my job. Love it! xoxo

  2. I wish all managers had this attitude.

    I don't manage people. My lot is life is a Worker Bee. I'm ok with that.
