My partner and I have been learning so much lately about the beauty of minds. Not all minds are made alike, for sure, and we’ve been learning how each person’s mind is made depends on how those people are led, served, and changed.

In consulting, we often help leadership teams and owners understand themselves better, and then to understand the team they serve with, as well as the clients they serve. Everyone looks at their world in different ways. Leadership teams are often surprised to find out that the people they serve with (teams) or the people they serve (clients) don’t understand themselves very well. Humans don’t know themselves very well. Why is it important to know this? Because it helps you know what you can and cannot ask of these people in order to serve them well.

As the leader of your firm, only you can deliver the particular style of service in the particular way you deliver it for the care and comfort of the team and clients you will lead. Let that sink in. If this is true (and it is), that means two important things: (1) you can go all in to claim your greatness to the world and not hold back, and (2) no one can take the peculiarity of your firm away from you. Because of who you are, you can commit deeply to how you believe you should be serving people in your firm and not have to worry about other people taking your clients away from you. You are peculiar and you must embrace that to build a firm that changes other people’s lives. Read more

In sales it’s said that people only buy from those they know, like and trust, which is kind of stupid because you have to know and like somebody to trust them. Nobody’s ever said, “I don’t know that guy, and I kinda hate him, but for some reason, I trust him.”

 

People are definitely not going to buy your coaching services if they don’t trust you. To be an effective coach, people have to trust you personally and professionally. Read more
