The author actually puts ACTIONS behind his words about the importance of giving to your clients by linking many areas of the book with several additional "Free" downloads of forms and guidelines to help you accomplish implementing the ideas given.
I especially enjoyed the chapter where she discussed the importance of following up with customers by personally writing thank you letters. This is an area that I have fallen short in doing with my customers for many years. As I read this particular chapter called "Giving Gratitude", I couldn't help but wonder how many customers I lost because I never expressed how much I appreciated their business in writing. This is one of many changes I am planning on making since reading this book.
suggests, probably to a lot wider audience, not
merely business owners but anyone who wants to get
better results, at work and in their personal life.
As a small business owner, this is the best info
I've ever read on socially-responsible growth and
also on how to make the most of networking
Worthwhile read for small business owners, or
people who want to launch a new business, with
the strongest sections being on how to motivate and
empower staff or outsource suppliers, goal-setting,
relationship-building and networking.
Should be required reading for every business school
student, new manager, business owner, or anyone who
wants to move from a culture or mindset of recession
or 'never having enough' to a culture of profitability and
Sam Rathling,and her contributing authors, demonstrate 16 strategies to change our current "chasing" model to one of a "givingpreneur". This allows us to serve others and be present in our moment of service rather than just checking the person off our "sale" list and looking for the next target. We take the time to truly connect and impact lives. And isn't that why we got into business in the first place?
I love "GIVE: 16 Giving Strategies to Grow Your Business, Increase Sales, and Network More Effectively! I highly recommend that anyone in business or students with an interest in business read and study this book. The principles are life-changing. And how you do business will change forever.
Simply, be thoughtful, try to be kind, and recognize others for what they've done for you as well as themselves and others.
My business is one that is driven by contractual arrangement. If I were to force every clause to performance I might have slightly more immediate income, but I'd have no one on the client side looking out for me, and I like to think some people do as I do for them. That self guidance makes each day more pleasant, and makes you feel like you're reaching out even when you don't have to. A big benefit is that word travels that you're a fair person, and that pays dividends in both retention and new business.
Sam gives plenty of real world examples of how she engages people she hadn't met, and how the relationships evolved in some cases, or in others, she just made someone feel good about their work. How much time did that take, compared to the benefits derived? Not much.
She is a person I'd like to meet someday. Highly recommended, especially for business people who are open to reconsidering the best components of ROI.
16 Giving Strategies is a book that everyone needs to read. It's a refreshing collection of examples and tips that outline ways to streamline your practices by increasing communication and consideration.
From correctly and creatively utilizing your email out-of-office response to the effects and impact of keeping a positive attitude in office and online through your social media, this book covers a seemingly endless way of improving the quality of your work environment.
It's truly an interesting thought to imagine the impact these methods would have. The section that covers the concept of "Giving Meetings" is fascinating. It provides an actual template with sample questions for a successful meeting that revolves around these core ideals.
The book more than pays for itself with its vast array of advice, ideas, examples, tips, and even downloads.
If you liked Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion, then I firmly believe you'll enjoy this book on the power of reciprocity. Give it a try - you'll not be disappointed.
