He works mainly with B2B companies.
Too often people in business start by telling you what they do and how great they are. They then go on to tell you that they have the best people or best products or some combination of people, products, service and price. This is flawed, as the claim "we are better" often leads to the question: "if you are so great, how can you prove this"?
People don't buy WHAT you do, they buy WHY you do it.
Don't expect the people who created the problem to think differently on their own. I believe in thinking differently and I love challenging perceived ideas and ways of working. This brings new insights that can be the catalyst for taking a different approach. That’s why I love coaching business owners and managers on Strategy, Marketing & Social Media to help them and their companies flourish.
The way I apply this is by asking probing questions as part of a structured conversation and using a range of simple, but powerful business tools. These often unlock fresh ideas and what I call “hidden gems”. Looking at a business from a customer or market perspective often presents a far clearer picture.
Our main service is coaching, both online and in person, with Mindshop Online as the core. The three main areas are Strategy, Marketing and Social Media.
We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking that created them.
Listen to the interview with Vanessa Leota of Solopreneur Business Network, where I share some of my learning and favourite tools.
