Have you ever noticed that we live in an unpredictable world that demands predictable results? As today’s rapid pace of change continues, it creates new problems everyday – problems that need to be solved even when we don’t have all the answers. This isn’t a world where you can succeed if you’re afraid of taking the first step. Now, more than ever, we need self-starters: people who are intrinsically motivated, proactive, action-oriented and comfortable taking the initiative.
If you don’t already see yourself as a self-starter, it’s time to cultivate certain skills.
To establish yourself as a leader, front-load your meetings. This will help you protect your time, and the time of others. You will do this by stating the purpose, establishing or confirming the time allotted, outlining possible outcomes, and gaining commitment before a meeting begins. Check out our step-by-step process for practicing and learning the art of the front-load to lead a team meeting or a sales call.

Here is what’s even more astounding… many of our clients see returns far higher than that.
