When your work has a social component, you usually have to build a mask. But not in an Instagram way, nor to hide who you really are, but to show your interlocutor a certain personality.
Contrary to what it might seem, these masks that we Fixers make for ourselves are full of good things.
Our masks are full of patience, humor, understanding, kindness, respect, protocol and many more qualities that we can’t afford to lose.
They help us to face a problem with a smile, to be patient with a client or simply to get the sympathy of those around us.
It’s not about being fake. It’s about attitude.
When the police come to check that the shooting permits are in order, we want the officer on duty to leave saying, “What nice kids!
We want to be able to go back to a location where we have worked in the past and not be told, “How long, in my arms!
We want to cultivate relationships with the people around us, so that we can count on them in the future and they on us.
These masks give us the power to face situations that would otherwise be difficult to overcome. And each one of our Fixer has a beautiful one.
If you have worked with any Fixer that didn’t have these qualities listed above, it’s because they lacked a good mask. And it seems that they are going to become fashionable 😷.
