Christine Rogers: Setting expectations. You know, we do a great job of setting expectations in the sales process. We start every call, every zoom with a quick overview of where we’ve been and where we want to go set up expectations for, you know, if all goes well, this is where we’ll end up at the end of this conversation.
But what about the expectations of our prospect the most, the last time you asked them what they think about this call, what their expectations are and what they’re hoping to get out of this specific conversation, or more importantly, what are they hoping or expecting about onboarding or timing or ongoing client management? What does that mean for them?
I think we might be missing something here. I know that it’s critical for us to set the tone and really control the call and control the process in a way that feels good for the client and for the prospect. But I think maybe starting off with what they hope to get out of it might be an interesting take on something we probably all been doing for years.
