The first few minutes were a bit quiet, but then the rant opened up. At this stage in my life, I’m attracted to those who have congruency. If you’re one person one day and totally different the next day without explanation, e.g. people at the gym, I drop them very quickly. In life and in business, Small Talk is essential, but it might have the right intention.
Here’s the follow-up to the previous Business English Podcast! Two video segments that need to be had and talked about. See, leadership in general is hard to come by, but it’s necessary qualities not only in managers and bosses but also with employees in general. Let’s break down two situations!
In order to have a good view or the organization’s performance, you need to look at different areas of your business (or business in general) that affect each other.
Finance, customers, internal processes, and learning and growth are all part of it. If one suffers, all suffer. Here are a number of stories and questions you need to ask yourself in terms of profitability.
When it comes to the decision making process and holding meetings, there’s a set agenda for you to follow. In this agenda will be objectives, priorities, data analysis, alternatives, pros + cons, and making the final decision. However, how can you open up sentences in these six categories? In today’s episode, I’ll give you a dozen ways to do so, along with hearing a completely discombobulated (confusing) meeting with constant interruptions.
You might think that making personal contact, in this social media era, is much less important than it used to be. But to be honest with you, having a conversation, warming up and getting to know a potential client will give you a 6-7 times higher chance of them cooperating with you. Here are some rules and a role-play situation!
This year, which was truly transformational, was the year I’ll always remember that “turned the tables” for me in terms of being an online solopreneur and advertising myself by “doing.” In today’s podcast, I’ll give you pointers and goals to how you cane amplify your next year!
Here we are with the second installment!
When it comes to the L.I.S.T.E.N Method, it’s essential to use what actually works for you.
Neutralize your own attitudes
In today’s podcast, we’re going to break each of them down and listen to ways people adapt to conversations by using them.
Frustrating experiences with late payers can be time-consuming and costly. There have been times that institutions here in Thailand would pay 1-12 months late. I, on the other hand, receive half payment upfront for bigger projects (over 50 hours) and the other half once the second-half begins. Now, if they don’t pay, they don’t get training. It’s a general principle. In 2019, there was a 12th grade student who didn’t pay me for the last 2 hours of teaching and I constantly had to bug her. In 2016, a university student wanted to pay at the END of the course.
All of this was unbelievably laughable and a learning experience. And so now, you MUST pay before class/course or forget about it.
But if they don’t pay, how can you follow up? Here’s a three-step process that you can adapt to your personal business + accounts payable.
Adapting to any of life’s challenges is easier said than done, but I want you to look at it from a growth perspective standpoint. If you were to take on a challenge, be it personal, workplace, financial, relationships, etc…what could you develop into during that process? In today’s podcast, we’ll listen to an employee get thrown into the fire at his new job in Tokyo and discuss!
Voicemails could be tricky for note-taking. We live in a world now that we don’t get many voicemails, but instead we get Whatsapp voice messages, or other messages on other social media platforms. So, when you do get them, sometimes we listen for 1-5 minutes and can’t remember anything. So, it’s time to prepare for effective note-taking!
Also, deadlines! I went on a rant, and it was beautiful.
