A decade ago, one of my colleagues asked me to consider utilizing the term “Choir Guidelines” instead of “Choir Rules.”
I immediately pushed back and explained that I wanted clarity. If structure is in place, I could then create a positive atmosphere.
She said, “Well, how would Guidelines be any different? Yes, it’s a less rigid word, but how would that change your ability to set behavioral standards?”
Well, this one conversation shifted my mind-set and ignited my program in a new direction.
