When You're Good, You Make Others Gooder

With great chops comes great responsibility.

When you’re the top talent in the room, you have a social obligation to share the artistic wealth. To elevate the collective game of the other players. To fight the selfish urge to concentrate all your skills and energies and sensibilities into your own performance and blow everyone away, and instead, to disseminate the volume of your spirit far and wide, so that your magic illuminates everyone, not just your own reflection.

That’s why they call you a pro.

Because you operate from the right pronouns.

Real leaders stand for the we.
