When you’re learning a new skill, instead of trying to figure it out yourself, the quickest and easiest way to learn is by emulating those who’ve already done it. You want to figure out what made them achieve their success so you could do the same.
Say you want to improve your golf swing, you might study Tiger Woods. Or if you’re working on refining your music producing, you might study D’Angelou. Whatever it is you’re developing, you can learn from those who’ve done it and adopt their habits and traits until they become yours.
This list is about interaction with clients, whereas the previous list is about personal attributes.
- Equal with customers
- Comfortable talking about money
- Challenge the decision-maker
- Comfortable with silence
- They’re prepared
- Don’t rush
- Ask great questions
- Impeccable at following up
