Are you feeling cheated? You invest a lot of time talking about your product or service but don’t see the return you expect in terms of clients and referrals?
In this webinar you will learn how to capitalize on your conversations to set yourself apart from the competition. The result will be more business, as clients, prospects, and colleagues will more naturally gravitate to you.
The secret lies in subtle techniques that make others feel understood and heard. You will learn tools for a variety of situations – enjoying an easy networking conversation and offering a diplomatic “No, thank you” due to COVID, for example.
And there’s the unintended benefit: as you make others feel understood and heard, they will, perhaps unconsciously, make you feel the same, because they are engaged. Everyone wins.
Your conversations will be more comfortable, strategic and, thus, rewarding in terms of time vs, acquiring new business.
