These third quarter zinger blog posts focus on how “what we do” impacts the customers we serve. So often, all of us get caught up going through the “steps” of someone else’s process or “how to” formula. Yet, our actions fall short. We, ourselves, do not feel authentic, sincere or genuine in talking their talk. As far as walking their walk, well, forget it.
Instead, these third quarter zinger blog posts concentrate on the value of YOU.
Let’s face it. Some days are more successful than others. However, I have found that I am most successful when speaking to audiences or collaborating with clients when I am in the moment. Attuned and attentive to what is going on in the clients’ lives, even if it has nothing to do with closing the next deal.
We become memorable to the clients we serve when we are genuinely ourselves. And yes, for those STEM professionals (Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics) reading this post, I can feel you shudder. However, as we hone our professional expertise, targeting perfection, often it is our communicated imperfection, in dialogue, which creates the greatest connection.
