If you would like to learn how to maximize the value of every consulting opportunity, get rapport with every contact, and deliver amazing service to every client (to get great return work and referrals), then WELCOME!
You've come to the right place.
If you are currently a consultant, then you have probably experienced some (if not all) of the following challenges:
If you have experienced any of those challenges, then keep reading!
Imagine a consultant - let's call him Pat. Pat has years of experience in his field, and has decided to become a consultant. Pat has been in business for a little while, and while he's making ends meet he feels he's working too hard, not making enough money, and he's starting to get frustrated.
Pat has an okay closing rate with prospects, but he wishes it was higher - he wastes a lot of time putting together proposals that are not accepted (or even responded too). Once in the door, Pat often struggles with hard-headed clients, as well as workers and staff that don't like or trust him.
Pat is comfortable with his work, but he finds that after doing analysis and making his recommendations he has a hard time getting buy-in from the client. As a result, his solutions aren't fully implemented and he doesn't get the credit (and referrals and repeat business) he deserves.
Sometimes it feels like even when the client implements his solutions that the client is under whelmed, as if they expected some kind of a "magic bullet." While the client doesn't complain or ask for money back, he doesn't become the "raving fan" Pat was hoping for.
Pat's doing okay, but he feels like he's spinning his wheels. He knows he wants and deserves much more money, greater success, and an easier life.
Does any of Pat's story sound familiar to you?Consulting is a relationship business. The key to success is to learn and implement the skills that make relationships easy and strong
In any consulting relationship, there are 7 important steps:
Step 1: Starting and Developing the Relationship - This is where you meet the client (or prospect) and start to learn about them. You also give them a sense of who you are and what you do. This is where you first start to develop trust. Mess up this step, and you've ended the project before it even begins.
Step 2: Contracting - Determing the Client's Needs - This step may be the most important one. While contracting, you must have the skill to really figure out what the client needs. This will accomplish two amazing things for you: 1) you will be sure to give the client exactly what they want so they are satisfied and impressed and 2) you will be able to demonstrate clear value for your work so that you can justify higher fees to the prospect.
Step 3: Collecting Data - Once you have the project, you need to take the time to understand the situation. This step seems simple enough, but without some fundamental skills you may skew the data and miss out on creating a solution that "wows" the client.
Step 4: Diagnosing the Problem - After you have the data, you need to look at the data and figure out what the problem is. It is essential here that you open your mind to make sure you are identifying problems, not symptoms. Otherwise, you'll fulfill your contract but absolutely under whelm the client.
Step 5: Generating Solutions - To solve the problem, you need a solution. If you have key creative skills, you will be able to generate a series of innovate solutions to make sure that you serve the client in the best way. You can also stay flexible when the client rejects your first idea.
Step 6: Implementing the Solution - Once the client agrees to your idea, the solution needs to be implemented, and you need the client's support and buy-in.
Step 7: Disengagement - After all is said and done, you end the relationship and follow up. If you do all of the above steps right, this is where you get that great follow-up work and referrals everyone wants.

It's up to you - whether you do a power session and watch the DVDs in one sitting or take it one point and game at a time, the techniques will work for you!
Plus, unlike any other system on the market, this will be the most fun you have ever had learning! The exercises and points are profound and powerful, but since they are from the world of improv comedy you will be laughing and smiling while you are improving your consulting work.
