Few would argue that TALENT is a critical determinant of team and organizational success. But just as important is having the resources to continually develop that talent, as anyone in human resources can tell you.
Yet these resources—coaches, mentors, etc.—are sometimes overlooked in business, especially in small organizations.
But rock bands get it. Nowadays many groups use performance coaches, vocal trainers, instrumental instructors (e.g. guitar or piano teachers) to develop talent, which mainstream business should take note of.
The video clip below shows one of the most brilliant—if unorthodox—musical teachers I know, who has personally helped bring out the best in my singing and playing. Here he demonstrates one of his famous vocal warm-up techniques, which I’ve been using for years to clear out nasal cavities.
