TaikoSkin Podcast Ep.10- 'Competition'

We all want to be the best. The best player, the best group. And we compare ourselves to others in order to gauge where we stand. And this leads to competition, sometimes heated, sometimes passive. But is this healthy for the group? Does it lead to players getting better?

And for anyone interested in what life is like at Kodo, we have a guest speaker, Joe Small, talk about his apprenticeship there. Check it out, its worth the listen.

Tip of the Month

Don't be a chameleon, don't be superficial, don't be disconnected, biased or overly formal. And don't over-network. The Harvard Business Review provides an excellent article, and a four-step process to better networking. It isn't about the numbers, it's about having a few, close and important connections in the right place. Here's the link the article (you'll have to register to read it all, but it's well worth it):
