One of the main things I watch out for as a coach is when someone’s ego gets overblown. Here’s why…
The Beatles squabbled often, and George Harrison and Ringo Starr grew to resent how John Lennon and Paul McCartney were making a LOT more money than they were – when often, George, in particular, contributed lyrics or musical ideas that played a big part in fleshing out a song that John or Paul “wrote”.
Many groups, like U2 for example, learned from this, and simply listed “U2” as the writers of their songs. Problem solved.
As a team show, or as a radio station. a COLLECTIVE ego, where you have pride as a whole, as a TEAM – but not one person’s ego dominating everything – always works best.
