TX_TrainingCenter_Slides_640px_06

 

Review:  Be methodical in your approach to any rigging task.

Research:  Be a student of your profession.  Load and rigging data – Don’t start until you get it; don’t stop until you get all of it.

Responsibility:  Be willing to give it and receive it.

Reinforcement:  Show support for those who work for you and those you work for.

Require:  Demand thoroughness of yourself and others for each rigging assignment.  Show by example, not by lip service.  Require continuing education for everyone.

Reserve:  Be cautious in making decisions.  Hold your judgment until all of the available information is known.

Resist:  Resist the temptation to make decisions for people who need to make them as part of their learning process.  Be patient.

Respond:  Respond quickly to those who are seeking answers or help.  Be wise in how to lend assistance.

Reward:  Be liberal in your praise and compliments.  Let others know when a job has been done well.  Be consistent in your praise of things done, i.e. equal praise for equal jobs.

Happy Rigging,

Mike Parnell
