Have you ever critically evaluated how you show up for business? The first impression that you are making or the impact that your presence has on a given situation? Ever wondered if you could do something differently to have a more powerful presence and impactful intercation when you show up for business?
It is not only my opinion, but also my experience that HOW you show up for business or in the workplace will determine your results – and your success.
You have probably attended at least a few in your lifetime. Those boring, brain-numbing time-wasting meetings that drone on forever. The meetings where nobody ever seems to get to the point and most people leave wondering why they were even present.
Well, you have to admit that meetings are sometimes a necessary evil. They play an important part in planning, preparing, communicating, influencing and concluding business. So, how can you ensure they creat great results?
Having an effective, productive meeting that leaves you energised and satisfied that you’ve really accomplished your goal is not that difficult. Here are six top tips to get the most out of your meetings.
In business, time equals money and, as an entrepreneur or business owner, you definitely cannot afford to waste either. In recent months I’ve seen several struggling entrepreneurs and business owners wasting time and losing out on business due to poor organisation. The key to curbing unnecessary wastage is simple – Get Organised!
Networking is well known to be one of the most effective mechanisms to build and develop business- and social relationships. After all, most of us prefer to socialise and do business with people we KNOW, LIKE and TRUST. Master networkers know that not only do they connect with and attract ideal clients as a result of networking, but they often have more influence in business and in the workplace as well! Learning how to network effectively can enhance your credibility and boost your business or career in a big way, BUT there are a number of critical do’s and don’ts.
Here are some practical pointers to guide you in becoming a Master Networker:
I personally think that most people, even highly successful achievers, at some stage or another feel that they could do with a little more confidence and courage in their lives. We live in a world where negativity often dominates the media. At both personal and professional levels we are often reminded of our weaknesses, shortcomings and what cannot be done. Whilst the media bombards us with subtle messages which highlight our shortcomings, we may also be reminded of what we lack by people closest to us – people who we actually rely on for encouragement and support. These all slowly erode confidence and courage.
The good news is that there are a number of proven techniques that, if applied consistently and on a regular basis, can help you to move beyond fear, doubt and uncertainty, and actually push up the level of confidence and courage you already have!
One of the best ways to build a credible and prosperous business, is with loyal base of satisfied customers and clients. Raving fans who do repeat business, give glowing testimonials and refer others will actually become your unpaid sales-force through word-of-mouth marketing.
Unfortunately, in many industries and businesses, exceptional service is not really top of mind. Sure, there might be a mission statement that says something about “being client centric”, “customer oriented” or “customer is king”, but businesses are not always walking the talk.

It is about taking CONSITENT ACTION to create an authentic connection with a client or customer – focussing on the things that matter most to THEM, not you. It is really one of the easiest ways to differentiate your business in tough times!
