🗣 You have become an effective communicator and strategist, when you can turn a difficult situation into a positive outcome. On Today’s Work Lessons 101 Q&A Show, we address the question: 📌 How to deal with a difficult Client? 🥇 Step 1: Categorize their difficulty? Why are they difficult? Are they a bully etc.? 🥈 Step 2: Assess the time you need to work with them. Is it worth the battle? 🥉 Step 3: Assess their motive? Once you are aware of their motive, you can develop your strategy? In the video I provide an example of how I dealt with a bully. ❤️ Unfortunately, sometimes as a Leader you need to shield your team from the bullets. And protect them from difficult clients, so they can do their job. #Worklessons101 #WhatTheyDontTeachInSchool #Careers #CareerDevelopment #CareerAdvice #CareerOpportunities #CareerTips #Education #Success #WorkLessons #SuccessMindset #CareerPlanning #CareerGoals #CareerSuccess #CareerGrowth #WorkAdvice #WorkTips #Working #NewGrad #RecentGrad #Clients #DifficultClients #Communication COPYRIGHT © 2019 WORK LESSONS 101™️ - ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

For every person who hates my accents, there’s a person who loves my accents. 😝⠀ ⠀ For every person who thinks my clothes are too tight, there’s a person who’s happy they can see how my joints articulate. 🦴 ⠀ ⠀ For every person who thinks I’m too critical there’s a person who loves my inquisitive approach. 🤓⠀ ⠀ And yes: There’s a difference between being able to receive differentiated feedback (rumble language) and accepting people in your life who shame you for being you. ⚡️The first is an essential skill of adulthood, the latter is just a waste of your time. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #difficultclients #trustyourinstincts #aintnobodygottime #impossibleclients #shame #actionsspeaklouderthanwords #imnotbossyimtheboss #wastoftime #cantfixcrazy

What’s the difference between a bad client and a difficult client? 🤨⁣ ⁣ Well, a bad client is one who behaves in a way that is unacceptable to you. For example, they refuse to pay, they are rude or (passive) aggressive, they don’t show you respect, etc 😡 ⁣ ⁣ One of the perks of running our own business is that we don’t have to tolerate bad behaviour. So feel free to fire them!⁣ ⁣ A difficult client is one who challenges your ways of working, or who wants you to push boundaries that you haven’t before. For example, contacting out of hours, wants more information than you normally share, pushes you to create new templates, products or services just for them. ⁣ ⁣ These clients are a source of learning! But setting and defending boundaries and expectations is key 🤓⁣ ⁣ Have you ever had a difficult client who has ended up teaching you something?⁣ ⁣ (This was part of the Virtual Collective discussion for @thetidecollective today)⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #thecreativeshed #managingclients #managingclientexpectations #difficultclients #difficultclientsarethebest #selfemployed #businessowner #creativebusinessowner #mybusinessismybusiness #yourbusinessismybusiness #mycreativebusiness #ukcreatives #creativestartup #startupcreative #ukstartup #creativebusinessowners #creativebusiness #servicebasedbusiness #creativebusinessconsultant #creativebusinesscoach #smallbusinessconsultant #smallbusinesscoach #coachingcreatives #coachingforcreatives #bournemouthbusiness #poolebusiness #dorsetbusiness #hampshirebusiness #berkshirebusiness

One of the most stressful jobs in America is an event coordinator😱6th place out of 10th! After working for 7 years in this industry I can totally understand why) Dealing with difficult clients, irresponsible vendors and tight budget and schedule, makes the work very intense. Of course with time you learn and have a reliable team, but difficult clients stays. How are you dealing with that type of people? What is the difficult client for you and what was the most obnoxious things you were asked to do while working in the event industry? #eventindustry #eventplannernyc #proposalplannerconfessions #isaidyes #marriageproposal #newyorkcityproposal #newyorkproposal #difficultclients #moststressfuljobs #proposalplanner #eventplanner #engagementinnyc #proposalphotographer #proposalphotography #engagementphotos #engagementring

Having an unhappy customer can be a uncomfortable experience, can’t it? 😑 It can make us doubt ourselves and knock our confidence. Or, it can make us angry. It’s especially tough when we are our work! ⁣ ⁣ So how can we deal with them? What can we learn from them? And how can we move on from the experience? ⁣ ⁣ This is the subject for the next Virtual Collective on 24th October. We’ll be getting together online, so you can join from the comfort of your home office (or sofa!!). If you’d like to join us, you’ll find all the info over at @thetidecollective 🌊 ⁣ ⁣ We’d love to hear your experiences/learnings, and we’ll be sharing ours! Eek!

Have you ever wanted to fire difficult clients before? And didn’t know how?⠀ ⠀ Client satisfaction is important for any business to thrive in a highly competitive industry. We need to make sure our clients are happy. However, even if you treat your clients appropriately and with professionalism, there will always be a time when you realize you can’t serve your difficult clients anymore.

All jokes aside, we appreciate “difficult” clients! No, we’re not sarcastic & here’s why: they’re good for our business, because they push us to take a cold, hard look at the quality of our work. They push us to hone our pitches, client relationship techniques & campaign reports. They push us to broaden & deepen our skills. In other words - they help us grow. . “Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to the development of an unhealthy state of things.” ~ Sir Winston Churchill . #ExecDigi #executivedigital #client #clients #clientmeme #clientsmeme #difficultclients #clientslife #digitalmarketing #marketing #marketingagency

I bet all of us business owners on here have had difficult clients - either currently or in the past? Now, I need to make this clear - I am not referring to any of my current ones here as they're all ace, but in the past I have made some dubious choices about who to work with 🧐 This has been for a number of reasons: just starting out and feeling eternally grateful anyone wants to work with me 🙌, making the arrangement with one client but realising that comes with another and - the biggest - not going with my gut instinct. Complete school girl error! 👩‍🏫 I wanted to ask how you deal with difficult clients? Do you try and work with them or get rid of them? I have to say I have done the latter and out-priced myself hoping that will do it 💰 I'd love to hear your techniques on how to get a client base you love (like mine - woo! 💕) Any insight would be so interesting! . . #clients #clientmanagement #difficultclients #gutinstinct #clientrelationships #difficultclients #femalefounders #womeninbusiness #womenwhowork #womeninspiringwomen #girlbosses #womenentrepeneurs #sheboss #hersuccess #smallbizsquad #smallbizowner #dreamsmallbiz #myownboss #businesstips #betheceo #savvybusinessowner #savvybusinessowners #creativebusiness #supportsmallbusiness #buildyourempire #mindfulbiz
