The Top 10 Mistakes Speakers Make That Undermine Their Message and Ruin Their Results!
What does a business consultant do? You’d probably say they help business owners and leaders in organizations do strategic planning, create a vision, establish goals, build teams, analyze and improve their processes, enhance their marketing efforts, troubleshoot specific problems, etc. And you’d be right. That’s what most business consultants do.
We help with those things as well, but the difference is we don’t work with you on only those things.
WE’RE ALSO SKILLED COACHES, AND WHAT A COACH BRINGS TO THE TABLE IS THE ABILITY TO FOCUS ON WHO YOU’RE BEING IN YOUR ROLE AS A BUSINESS OWNER OR A LEADER. WHICH PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS ARE HELPING YOU SUCCEED IN YOUR ROLE AND WHICH ARE PROBLEMATIC?
We help you play to your strengths and compensate for your weaknesses … or work to improve what you’re able to improve in yourself.
The coach-as-business consultant is going to look at where you stack up on a number of important personal characteristics.
THESE ARE THE PERSONAL TRAITS YOU, AS A BUSINESS OWNER, NEED TO EITHER POSSESS, QUICKLY DEVELOP, OR HIRE IN IF YOU WANT TO MAXIMIZE YOUR PRODUCTIVITY, PROFIT POTENTIAL, AND PERSONAL SATISFACTION.
In working with literally thousands of business owners, we’ve been able to identify the key traits that really serve people well and need to be present in your organization if you want it to be all it can be.
LET’S TAKE A MOMENT TO HIGHLIGHT A FEW OF THOSE HERE. ASK YOURSELF, AM I _____ ?
Determined, Persistent, and Focused
This one speaks for itself. There are always going to be challenges and stumbling blocks along the way, and unless you’re determined and persistent, it’ll be all too easy to give up and “go try something else.” You either bring these traits to the table or you’re out of luck. Not so with focus. Most people can learn to focus if they’re currently somewhat scattered in their thinking and actions. They just need to know how to focus and exactly what they should be focusing on. A business consultant / coach helps with that.
Rigor’s all about bringing your “A” game to the table, doing whatever you do scrupulously well, while adhering to the highest standards of customer service and personal integrity.
We all come up short of perfection. But it’s not about achieving perfection. It’s about striving for excellence. Your work represents you. Your reputation’s on the line. And frankly, we see a lot of businesses coming up short in the quality department. We’re able to help perform a kind of quality-control function in many aspects of your business.
Life throws everyone curve balls, and how you handle them, how you bounce back when things don’t go your way, makes all the difference.
At its heart, resilience depends on a simple belief that, “Things always work out for me.” It allows you to take things in stride and keep moving forward.
People who are resilient see any setbacks as temporary, which allows them to focus on the solution, rather than the problem. Contrast that with seeing yourself as a victim and arguing for your limitations. It’s paralyzing. You may go there from time to time, but you can’t stay there. We won’t let you stay there.
The imposter syndrome affects so many people. No matter how qualified and wonderful they are, they think they’re not good enough. Our job is to help you build your belief in yourself to the point that you can confidently do everything you need to do and want to do … from offering a new service to speaking in front of a big group. In fact, helping you become both confident and competent as a speaker tops the list of what we provide in the way of business consulting services.
The public yearns for the authentic, the real, the genuine … and embraces those who are passionate about their work and care about their clients. As the old saying goes, “People don’t care what you know until they know that you care.”
You have to be yourself … your best, most authentic, genuine self. That happens to be one of our specialties, helping you present yourself and what your business has to offer in the most compelling, inspiring, and genuine way possible, whether that’s through your writing, your speaking, or how you interact with clients and prospects.
Are you able to put yourself out there and interact with people in an up-close-and-personal way? Too many business owners fail to make the personal connections that are so vital to the success of any business, especially a service-based business. We teach you the difference between low-touch and high-touch strategies and guide you in implementing the high touch strategies that suit you best, given your personality and the particular services you offer.
Open To New Ideas … Innovative
You can’t afford to stand still and become closed–minded or complacent, because your competition sure isn’t standing still. The world is constantly changing. It’s important to be able to adapt and innovate. But it’s often hard to see what’s truly possible when you’re used to doing things a certain way and you’re fixated on day-to-day issues. One of the primary jobs of a business consultant is to help you see above the treeline to the forest beyond … and everything you could be doing.
Being truly innovative requires the willingness to go all in … to invest in yourself and your business. Are you ready to do that? If so, we’re here to partner with you to make good things happen.
The bottom line: Who you’re being is just as important as what you’re actually doing. We can help you be the best you can be.
“In 2015, I was seeking something more and knew I needed Denise’s coaching to help me get me there. She helped me discover my inner confidence and develop the courage to seek what I knew, in my heart, to be true. She asked hard questions that changed my entire perspective and allowed me to tear down personal roadblocks that had held me back for years. Today, because of her coaching, I have a confidence and focus I never thought possible and a respect for my ability to set and achieve my goals.”
