7 TIPS FOR ENDURING CLIENT RELATIONSHIPS!!!

blog_clients

Be punctual with a client because no one wants to wait and waste their time and not showing up on time is equivalent to lack of promise fulfillment or a lie.

If there is no immediate or historical proof to the contrary that a client is wrong then assume that the client is right and make appropriate accommodations.  As soon as possible check if other clients have had the same complaint and address it as soon as possible if that is the case. If the client problem surfaces more than once then further questioning or investigation may be necessary to avoid future recurrences.

Clients are long duration relationships so don’t be tempted to make a killing on one transaction at client’s expense which will reflect badly on your organization if the client finds out you overcharged by a great amount for something they could have gotten elsewhere much more cheaply.

Don’t do the transaction unless it is in the client’s best interest, is what the client really needs, is at a reasonable price, and doesn’t hurt the client financially or in other ways. Don’t make pushy sales designed for instant profit but stress the needs it will fulfill or problems solved in the client’s best interest. “You may want this at extra expense but you really don’t need it” will prove to the client that you can be trusted to have their best interest at heart.

Before making an agreement with a first time client don’t be afraid to question or probe what needs you will be fulfilling or problems that you will be solving by entering a client relationship. If the client is not sure what needs they have then you can offer the needs which are usually fulfilled by your organization and get useful feedback from the client if it is a good fit. If “what do you need which we can provide?” does not get a response then “do you have this need which the organization can provide?” can start a mutually beneficial conversation. Remember that what a client wants may not be what they need and the closer you fulfill a need the happier will be the client without superfluous wants which may cost much more.

Contracts can be made but try to settle legal disputes out of court if possible and don’t enter contracts which don’t benefit you in the long duration and doesn’t make short duration financial sense.

If a client relationship is no longer profitable or the client is trying to take advantage of you unjustly then don’t be afraid to terminate the relationship.

THE TRUTH ABOUT NEGOTIATIONS***

negotiation

Negotiation: n. communicating with the goal(s) of getting an agreement(s)

Negotiations where agreements are achieved are frequently compromises or cooperative efforts or both. A compromise is frequently where both sides get something that they want but not everything that they want. A cooperative effort is where both sides contribute something towards a common goal(s).

Both nations may want just trade as a goal but each side may want to protect a vital industry from competition by a big business in the other country. The solution may be putting tariffs on the vulnerable valued industry and let others justly compete in the marketplace.

In a divorce case one may want more custody rights and the other may want more alimony and the compromise is frequently one paying more alimony and getting more visitation rights for it.

A new family car may be too expensive for one spouse to buy but if they pool resources or each contributes money from their paycheck then the purchase of a new vehicle is possible. This is an example of a cooperative effort to reach a common goal.

Whether it is a family negotiation or a negotiation between nations you either compromise or cooperate or do a little of both.

In some negotiations one side gets everything that they want and the other side does not hoping perhaps that in the next negotiation they will come out on top or be the winner. In family situations there are sometimes winners and losers but the real winner is usually the family unit as a whole.

Most negotiations result in compromise agreements where each side gets something that they want but neither side usually gets all that they want out of the agreement. It is a win some lose some proposition for both sides rather than a win and lose situation for one side versus the other.

Rights to property, rights to offspring in divorce cases, rights to sharing property, and rights to one’s time, energy, and effort can all be subjects of negotiations. It helps to be empathetic and as truthful as possible so that the negotiation is not just a one time winning proposition for the deceptive side resulting in an absence of trust and good faith the next time around. A successful mutually beneficial negotiation can open doors to further negotiations in the future if true compromises are reached.

Sometimes negotiations may be a win win situation for both sides if the sides agree to give everything the other side wants for a fixed amount of time. One side may totally win for the first 6 months and the other side may totally win for the next six months but usually such an agreement is not a permanent solution to a long duration problem.

THE TRUTH ABOUT AGREEMENTS***

Labor-Agreements1

Agreement:  n. corresponding with similar opinions and/or facts frequently after discussion and adjustment of differences in fact and/or opinion and/or judgment and the results can be recorded

When you have two or more humans involved in an activity(s) agreement is frequently necessary. You frequently have to mutually decide or agree on a goal(s) and then agree on what is the best way to achieve the goal(s) and how much responsibility each participant has in the goal(s) achievement.

Sometimes opinions differ widely and agreement is not possible so the best solution is just to hold on to your own opinions if agreement is not essential. We may agree to disagree but life still goes on.

It is frequently a leader’s responsibility to choose a course of action even when agreement has not been made between all the participants or workers.

Sometimes agreement involves compromise between competing parties or each participant getting something desired out of the agreement but not everything desired. Economic and political treaties or agreements are frequently compromises where each side benefits but with some drawbacks for each side.

Sometimes there are different approaches to reaching the same goal(s) such as in raising offspring. One parent may have more of an authoritarian style of leadership and the other a more democratic or consensus style of leadership.

The truth is that for very young offspring and authoritarian style of parenting is preferable and a democratic style of leadership more appropriate in the teen years when offspring are capable of independent logical thinking too. You do it your way and I will do it my way is frequently an acceptable agreement style where more than one approach leads to the same goal(s).

In business agreement frequently leads to a formal agreement or contract.

Most household arguments are based in disagreements or differing opinions on what good and bad behavior is and what is an acceptable purchase and what isn’t. Harsh criticism or intensely blaming another as being totally responsible for a problem or mistake is frequently how household arguments start.

If a discussion does not lead to intense arguing then agreement is frequently possible but if it is confrontational or a you against me attitude then it sometimes makes agreement impossible and lingering dissatisfaction and resentment is the result.

Teamwork in a family is a very important desirable concept and in business it is increasingly modifying authoritarian styles of leadership.
