Every office has one, and I was determined to find it as I began my internship at CS3. Having minimal experience working in an office setting, I was curious
as to where or how one might be discovered.
I had done my research. After binge watching “The Office” on Netflix I was convinced that someone resembling the character Dwight Schrute actually existed and that it was only a matter of time until I would find that person. I concluded that if one could not be found, then it would be my responsibility to fill the role.
While I have not yet found the embodiment of Dwight contained within a single person (which is probably a good thing), I have come to appreciate the diversity I have discovered in the office simply by interacting with coworkers and hearing their stories. While transactions may be executed via phone or email, I have found that team cohesion can be developed even in the break room or the parking lot.
There are some intangible aspects of business that go beyond financial statements, annual reports, and strategic objectives. I work with people, and I should treat them as such. When a culture of care is cultivated within a company, that attitude extends into the services the business provides and helps increase the overall value added to the customer.
While I haven’t found Dwight Schrute, I have found a team of incredibly talented consultants and advisors that cares about each other and their clients.
