“get behind the job title”
erm – I own the company – I don’t have a job title. I’m not a factory worker who is told what to do/be by other people. Take that out and it’s perfect.
There’s your title-company owner. Everyone’s got a title, whether earned and wanted or unearned and unwanted. If you don’t have a job, society gives you the title “unemployed”. Or if you are older, “retired”.
I had an idea to wear a small badge hidden somewhere on my person with the words “I am not who you think I am” that I could bring out in meetings if the time was right. Not sure what that would prove, Then I realised everyone should wear one, as I also think people are who I think they are.
Thanks for the comment!
I’m thinking “get behind the job title” should be more like “come out from behind the job title” … but, then again, a job title is very much one kind of mask, isn’t it? So in that respect it would be redundant …
I am enjoying your posts!
