I have a great job. I’m the in-house CPA for a group of medical office buildings.
We have a tiny staff, so part of our culture is that nothing is below anyone’s pay grade. Our motto is, “Everybody does whatever the @#$% it takes to get $#!+ done.” Because of that I’m not just an accountant. From time to time I’m also a snow plow driver, landscaper, bouncer, toilet unclogger and self-storage facility manager.
My partner and I have been learning so much lately about the beauty of minds. Not all minds are made alike, for sure, and we’ve been learning how each person’s mind is made depends on how those people are led, served, and changed.
In consulting, we often help leadership teams and owners understand themselves better, and then to understand the team they serve with, as well as the clients they serve. Everyone looks at their world in different ways. Leadership teams are often surprised to find out that the people they serve with (teams) or the people they serve (clients) don’t understand themselves very well. Humans don’t know themselves very well. Why is it important to know this? Because it helps you know what you can and cannot ask of these people in order to serve them well.
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.
