Peter Block is one of Jason Blumer’s heros. We had the honor of interviewing him for the August 2019 episode of the Thrivecast. And Peter Block turned Jason into a 14-year-old fangirl.

He wasn’t a fangirl like screaming and crying and fainting for the Beatles. That’s more like a 13-year-old fangirl. Jason was just very concerned that by the end of the interview Peter Block would like him. He simply wanted Peter Block to be his BFF in such a manner that their families would vacation together starting on Labor Day.

My partner and I have been performing consulting for years. We fell into it with a particular client. We enjoy selling things we’ve never provided before, so years ago we discovered a client had a need that we thought an onsite consulting engagement could solve. Though we didn’t know how to do it then, we pitched the onsite consulting engagement and the client bought it (nothing like selling something you don’t know how to deliver to make you quickly become an expert in that service you just sold). So there we were seeking to figure out how to deliver a service we didn’t fully understand.

 

To figure out how to perform the consulting we just sold, we picked up the book Flawless Consulting, A Guide to Getting Your Expertise Used by Peter Block. Peter Block is more a philosopher than a consultant, and he approaches his work from a principled mentality (as we do). That means he teaches foundational principles, or beliefs, and then you perform the detailed work of consulting based upon those beliefs. He’s been very influential in our process of consulting and we’re grateful that Peter Block will be on our Thrivecast podcast soon (sponsored by Intuit and Bill.com).
