    Great story line developing within this post if you are considering purchasing or selling a business.

    Wow. Due Diligence in business buying is so important. Certainly cash flow and other statements are critical to success, but the boogie man always hids off the balance sheet. Having sold a company and bought one i was schooled by attorneys and business valuation experts. Your story is the horror story they reminded me of during these transactions. Looking forward to moving on.

    I'm alway one for the "bottom line." When it comes to assertiveness, I recognized aggressiveness can be a hindering impression. I always hum to myself, "When I'm assertive, I don't need to apologize."

    All coahes are not the same. Coaches must have leadership qualities. There must be tolerance for slow learners. They should be great communicators. There should also be accountability, transparency, dignity, professionalism and dignity.

    Great Buzz. When I share information to help people, there are 2 questions that always need to be answered in their heart: 1) Can I Do This? 2) What's in this for Me? . When these two questions are answered, now I can help the person reached their goals.

    Unless we are talking to a family member we are always outside of the communication loop for others. Should we find ourselves either serving or contracting with this person then a level of trust in understanding will need to be built. This is the first bridge of communications. Also the most important. If i can't have your ear and confidence then i can't walk with you in building the second bridge.

    The second bridge is what brought us together in the first place. A function of meeting a goal that has now left us challenged in attainment. Reasons of the position are really not important. The fact is a new perspective is needed, because by myself i can't produce a new one.

    The second bridge is usually what gets folks in trouble. They want to go straight to building the new perspective, before trust is built. Great insights and thoughts, @John Whitehead

    The concept of 'being the other person' was extensively addressed by the physicist, David Bohm. Enlarging on this entity of dialogue, Bohm defined the approach as incorporating sensitivity and non-judgmentalism together with a clarity of the prevailing territory. In the context of neurophysiology this mind state is associated with raised levels of oxytocin which promotes trust and belief as well as heightened sensitivity. Ultimately the evolving rapport emerging from this engagement leads to a far more effective and sustains 'sell' of ideas and product in our experience. Thanks for sharing this important post @John Whitehead

    A nice jargon free post John. Reading "ask for feedback to make sure you 'hear' them" reminded me that we can reflect the client's language preference. For example, "It sounds like..."
    "I feel it may be better to..."
    "It looks as though..."
    we can use the same sensory language to maintain rapport.

    Thanks for the read.

    I find it so important !

    A professional' success depends on his or her ability to communicate effectively. Today is more important than ever.
    You use words and gestures to communicate and through the communication process, you sell yourself and your services and/or products to others.

    yep, I do this in my ESL talking class often. I pick an Emoji randomly, write a sentence on the board and have the students deliver the sentence - while the other students try and guess the mood / emotion.

    The solution, although perhaps not simple, is clear. Organize. While no union is perfect, the undeniable fact remains that the negotiating influence of a group of 100 or 1,000 members far outweighs the negotiating power of a single individual.

    We do not get what we deserve in this world. We get what we negotiate. Don't do it alone.
