Principle 9 Be a Dependable Authority

Marvin R. Weisbord Berrett-Koehler Publishers ePub

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise.

–RUDYARD KIPLING, “If” (1895)

Kipling’s poem contains three more stanzas, 15 “ifs” in all. He ends by saying that if you can do all these things “you’ll be a man, my son.” We like his poem because Kipling vividly describes to his child exactly the challenges every meeting leader faces. Anytime you assume authority, people test your dependability. The more emotional the agenda, the tougher the testing. It is your job to keep your head, not take things personally, be patient and not too full of yourself. The payoff comes when you learn to trust steadfastly that when you hang in long enough, no matter how disquieting the agenda, you will be doing the best you can.

So this year, it’s back to crowd-pleasers, which is why Alan chose Guys and Dolls. Besides Geneva and me, two other people are helping with auditions—reps from the parents’ association, here to protect their children’s interests. Bob and Mary are their names, I think, or something equally upstanding. They’re both wearing patterned turtlenecks, one with strawberries, the other golf clubs. I’m nervous sitting next to them, since I’m sort of a scandal myself these days. It turns out that the last director left more than greasepaint in his wake. My baby boy is due in May, and I’m beginning to show under my smocks. The director ran off to Moab, Utah, to photograph the hoodoos. Which makes sense to me. He was the kind of guy you’d imagine would work best with giant rocks.

But that’s all over now and only Geneva and Alan know about my situation. Otherwise, I’ve kept it pretty quiet. Or tried to. I haven’t told my family, which technically is just two more people: my mother, who lives hundreds of miles away, and my older sister, Anne, from Albuquerque, who wants to visit in
