This week we revisit "How are you building your referral tree?"
Do you receive and welcome referrals? Many have shared they struggle to ask for referrals or do not get many referrals. Others have shared they built their business on referrals.
Here are some things to try that may help increase referrals. I would encourage you to comment and share your experiences that work for you or did not work so we can all learn from it.
Simply asking a non-intrusive question is...
If you answered "all the time" then you are correct. If you had a different answer, go back and read the previous sentence.
As owners, as leaders and as business professionals, we are ALWAYS networking when interacting with others, when we are talking to our team, when we are talking to friends, associates, prospects and clients.
Last week at a social event with a group of five of us, I was introduced to two new people. I actually know both...
How do you handle challenges and tough situations?
As a leader, we are faced with this multiple times a day or a week or a month depending on the speed and nature of your business.
What is the most difficult situation you have dealt with and how successful were you?
Deal with the "white elephants" in the room. It is interesting how many people walk into the room, see the big white elephant and say nothing. These are the same people who enjoy...
How do you determine what is important?
Leaders set priorities on the important and difficult stuff instead of procrastinating or avoiding it. It is too easy to say you are busy and cannot deal with it. Embrace it and face it. Not later. Now!
Who gets to decide what is important?
You, the leader, gets to decide and determine what is important. There are many who want to push their agenda as the most important. The leader must look this and make a...
Do you ever jump to conclusions and find out later you did not have all the facts? This happens more often than we think. Take a look at your daily routine and all the assumptions you make.
It is very true about the saying "knowledge is power". I'd like to share a story with you which I've adapted to my version for this topic. Let's call it The Dad on the Subway.
Two random strangers were in a subway car, when a...
Several of you have asked about daily habits and here is a revisit to this topic from over a year ago. Keep sending your comments and feedback.
Always a challenge due to the fact every task usually feels like a top priority. Follow a simple rule: FIFO which means First In, First Out. With the exception of adding a certain new task you feel is a higher priority, add it as the next task or near the top of...
Recently I responded to a client's e-mail by including the line: "One thing for certain is change. It changes hourly in our industry".
How do you embrace change?
It is not easy to always be open-minded, however, we must always have an open-mind. Relying on just the past and doing things the same way will not necessarily result in future success. Just because "we always did it that way" does not mean it is the best way.
Look at the constant change,...
My "clean-streak" is over. When someone asks "Have you ever been arrested?" now my answer is yes.
It started as a typical monthly team discussion on Friday morning where we gather to share information as a group...
