Are you committed to change?

In an interview I was asked, “as a business coach, how do I get commitment from clients?”

            I gain commitment by influencing and persuading clients about several objectives and by having them buy into the process. I have a plethora of methods. As I said earlier, every client is unique. I figure out what works for each individual one. I do have one client in particular, and even though her company is no longer keeping me on retainer, she still emails me weekly.

What Do You Need to Get from Point A to Point B

In an interview, I was asked, “Once you get the client to understand that they are losing money through lack of productivity, how do you address their problems?”  You may be thinking the same thing and wonder how it applies to your business.  You may think each scenario would be different, because each industry or business has their proprietary ways of doing things. 
Ironically there’s a common thread to the majority, if not all, work environments. There are generic checklists for general areas to address, no matter what industry or size. Very quickly, we are able to identify where there
