15 Feb Uncommon company – uncommon leaderPaul Spiegelman is the Founder and CEO of Beryl based in Dallas. The company claims the distinction of being the second Best Medium Company to Work For in America. What’s uncommon is that this company is a call center focused on the hospital market. What’s uncommon about Paul is that he was running the company successfully for 18 years before he read a business book! He will tell you that he’s since become a voracious reader of business books, and they have made him a better leader. I can’t help but wonder if running a company for so many years on “instinct” made the company what it is today? That is, he focused on creating a foundation built on uncompromising values rather than short-term profit.
Paul wrote a book called, “Small Giants Community“, “a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting companies that choose to be great instead of big.”
Uncommon? Absolutely. But why?
