The Grimsmo Grapple: Touchy Subjects
The guys do their best to be open and honest but some topics
are hard to discuss!
Compartmentalizing family vs. business life is easier said than done. At GK, business IS family, so it's near impossible!
Process Reliability--NOT JUST FOR PARTS OR BUSINESS OPERATIONS
Grimsmo shows tremendous strength in his ability to self-evaluate.
Instead of hiding behind a smile, he admits his own truth.
On his quest to become more assertive, unlearning habitual ways of handling conflict and replacing them with more effective strategies is a lengthy process--a process needing constant practice.
The old "build-up and blow-out way" isn't the Grimsmo way!
GET THE CHIPS OUTTA THERE
Throw a couple of broken through-coolant drill bits
onto the pile and you've got the making of a "wild week."
"Could a line of code turn the coolant on to STRAFE the hole instead of going into it?" - Saunders
(To understand this plausible solution, play DOOM or search the urban dictionary).
Being an entrepreneur means you're a defacto leader.
As the leader, you inadvertently pass on your ways of handling
chaos to your team. If you freak out, they'll freak out.
If you approach with a cool head, they'll follow suit.
SUB SANDWICHES AND SUCCESS
Useful tips can be found everywhere...even at Jimmy John's!
While on a lunch break at Jimmy John's, Saunders notices
a list on the wall.
Grimsmo shifts his perspective to that of an investor looking from the outside in.
Saunders poses 2-sided hypotheticals about what outside investors AND business owners want.
