Hey there, hero!
As an actor and voice talent, I've been on both ends of notes.
Meaning I've received them when auditioning or being taught, and I've given them when coaching talent.
But when I received an email from one of my brand spankin' new VOHeroes Pros, concerned that others new to the profession might not know how to receive coaching, adjustments, notes etc. with welcome and open arms, I realized something.
That I never got formal training on how to take a note.
I just watched others and copied what other actors and voice talent did...how they reacted, accepted, rejected, fought, embraced and and a whole host of other actions when they got feedback in a session...and how what they did helped (or didn't help) them get better.
Luckily, I had some good role models. But it made me think that there might be a place for some formal education on a really simple thing: how to get the most out of being coached.
So I got together with that new Pro, Bethany Arrington, and my friend and awesome coach, Michael Kostroff, and we discussed best practices for being world-class at taking notes and making adjustments. I think you'll get a lot out of it, too.
