I spend my life talking to business owners and professionals on how to use intuition to create a successful business. It is always surprising to them when I point out that their clients are intuitive as well!
Knowing this means that we have to know what our clients perceive intuitively when they see, meet or speak with us. Now your clients are probably not conscious and aware that they are “reading” you. The question becomes “What do you want them to see, feel or know about you?”
One of my favorite stories on this topic is the woman who was to have surgery. The morning of the surgery she insisted on seeing the surgeon in person before her surgery. She insisted! Finally, everyone realized she meant it, so the surgeon came to her room. She looked him over and asked him how he was doing that morning. She asked him silly and not so silly questions. She told me she wanted to know what kind of space he was in before he cut on her. She said if he looked angry or upset she would have refused the surgery. In the end, he was in a good space. He laughed and joked with her a bit then went to prepare for the surgery. She felt good about him that morning and so the surgery went as planned and was successful.
Decisions people make about using our products or services has as much to do with what they pick up about us as it does with our business. So what does this mean to you as a business owner? Let me offer you an intuitive technique for being ready to meet with a client or potential client. It is all about taking the time to set the energy in your space in the best possible way for each situation. What do you want your potential clients to pick up (intuitively) from you?
Intuitive techniques: Take time before you make that call or go into a meeting. Find a quiet place. Take a deep breath. Close your eyes if you are in a place that you can do that. Notice yourself. Where is your attention? Be present. Let go of all thoughts and focus on this client and this moment. Let go of the energy that you are holding onto that has nothing to do with this meeting or conversation. There is nothing more irritating to a potential client then to see or feel that your energy and attention is somewhere else or vibrating in a way that does not fit their concerns.
Notice, what your energy is like? Is this the space you want your client to perceive you? Change your space. Relax. Take a deep breath and release all the energy you are holding in your space. Start to be aware of the client and how you want to your communication to be with them. Don’t think. Be intuitive.
Intuitive techniques take practice. Give this a try and let me know your comments.
Best wishes on your success, Kay
