I made section leader this year in my marching band. One of my "competitors" didn't make it, and she's not quite happy about it, and the sad thing is she's not just sad. I know that I shouldn't really interfere with her decisions (she's thinking about joining drum line), but she's an important player in our section. AND, if she stays she might, well, not be the same old happy person she used to be (she might try to be controlling, too). SO, I have a simple choice: talk to her to stay, or let her be. And I know as a section leader I should be able to make these decisions alone (and maybe with the director), but some advice (that's non-personal) would be great.
