My family got rid of our TV 22 years ago and we’ve never looked back.
With the advent of Netflix, we have returned to some degree of TV watching, but on our schedule and our terms.
I recently exposed the kids to episodes of Mission Impossible—we get a laugh every time in the intro when the lead of the team is going through the portfolio of pictures. Inevitably, the same people of the core cast are “selected” each time over and over—what a shocker!
What does this have to do with CSR and why is it in this blog?
In addition to the obvious lead-in to our team doing amazing work (remind me to tell you about the time we ran one of our client’s business for him—while he was locked up in jail for eight days!), the idea of a group of really talented people with varying experience bases applied to all sorts of interesting and diverse situations is germane to CSR. Whether it’s a telecom business poised for stratospheric growth or a law-firm adding clients and partners, I have my team of “agents” (same ones, over and over!) that I pull out and deploy against different situations and industries. Yes, we drive our clients to adopt a Mission Statement (no pun intended!) and use it as a very active tool to discern what to do and what not to do.
We are choosier with the “missions” (read: “engagements”) that we accept these days than we used to be, but the end result is the same—success with “Mission Possible.”
Without a bunch of self-destructing tape recorders…
