“being emotional, showing emotion showing empathy. These are things that corporately are generally devalued because they come across as emotion. And oftentimes can feel an inadequate when measuring it because of how we measure our gains and our gaps.
To be really honest I didn’t get to work at MTV because I. Creating TV shows or even working on TV shows, that wasn’t my job. My job was to audition people and make sure they had the damn best experience of their life. That they connected with that camera in such a way that they were like, Ooh, like that felt good.
That was like that was me. Like I didn’t, I felt present. They were my words. I didn’t, I didn’t like giving people scripts to. Say things, I would, I would say pick a, maybe at M T V I would say, you know, pick a genre of music, and then let’s talk about one artist in that category who’s making impact.
And I wanna know how you even came to know that artist and what your experience was with them. That framework for a question. There’s no, there wasn’t even a question to mark in that question. Like I learned to ask questions by just setting up the story” – Vinnie Potestivo
