Robert Plant-Rockin’ Role Model
Apparently Mick Jagger, Gene Simmons, Jimmy Buffett and Sammy Hagar aren’t the only musicians with a keen business sense. Forbes says leaders and managers can learn a great deal from Robert Plant.
The financial magazine says Plant “embodies the right way to do it” when it comes to knowing when to “let go and when to let others take a turn at the top… Plant is touring, quietly and with little fanfare, at the same time that The Rolling Stones continue to plunder consumers by attempting to charge over $600 for a premium ticket.”
Plant, on the other hand, bucks the trend of just trying to make a quick buck by reuniting with Led Zeppelin. “The once-proudly strutting Plant conducts himself now with a dignity, a self-effacing sense of humor and a humility that is instructive, even enlightening, in our narcissistic, celebrity-driven, winner-takes-all culture… In that way, he is a meaningful model for leaders and public figures everywhere.”
