Review: AKG C451 '65th Anniversary' & D12VR Microphones
Reviewed by Chris SanchezAKG recently sent me a pair of their new 451 ‘65th anniversary edition’ models as well as a D12VR to evaluate in studio.

Set Goals and Achieve Them – Leading Your Team Intelligently
Goals are important for morale and for production measurement. If you set goals with your team, they will work harder to meet those goals and feel satisfied when they hit those marks. If you want to track progress, then hitting goals/mile-markers in a timely fashion can reassure that work is being done at the desired pace. Team leaders, particularly for production teams, understand the importance of setting goals and achieving them. They also appreciate that goals take effort and commitment from every team member to fulfill. It’s up to the team leader to find the right balance between realistic and far-fetched goals, inspire and encourage in order to maintain success.
