I’ve created a three-step consultation process that will help us get to know each other better, and on a deeper level, than most interviews. The point in doing so is knowing as much about each other up front so we can both decide if we will be a good fit for one another. Hopefully, it will also help prevent miscommunications or problems later on; but if there is a problem, we’ve already discussed how it may be handled!
The Ice-breaker call: This call is about 15-30 minutes, and is meant to see how we initially connect. We don’t even talk about our businesses here; it’s just get to know each other, our backgrounds and experiences, hobbies, interests – I want to know more about your personally, and give you an peek inside my life as well.
The Initial Consultation: This calls is around 60 minutes since we are getting more in-depth here. This is where I really want to hear about your business and what you are wanting to achieve. I want to know where you’re unhappy with your business or personal life, where you may be stuck, and what you may have been procrastinating on. I also want to get into know about your goals for your business and your life, so we can start brainstorming on how to get you there if we move forward. This is where I also get to tell you about my practice, how it works, and how I help my clients.
The Deeper Discussion: Or, you can also think of this as getting down to the “nitty gritty”. This call lasts around 60-90 minutes and we are touching on subjects that get into the core of our working together. Often partnerships fail because the participants don’t take the time (or are hesitant) to discuss how they will work together and what the partnership means to both of them.
