I recently sat down with a good friend of mine who wanted to discuss a couple of business accounts he was dealing with. The plan was to come up with some strategies and a tactical plan to ensure the relationships between his organisation and the clients’ were developed at a deeper level; ultimately leading to more client spend.
He also wanted to explore some angles around developing a trust-based partnership which involved all stakeholders; regardless of whether the individuals were engaged in a commercial relationship or not.
Well, we come up with some good ideas but more importantly, it also inspired my to write this article.
It is my intention that this article provides you with some food for thought as you explore ways of making a bigger impact on people; both in business and personal situations. It does not replace existing commercial models although in my experience, it goes a long way to substantially increase client spend.
This is a strategy I’ve used successfully for many years; the combined business model is featured in the eBook – Evolution of the Buyer.
When done consciously you also receive a corresponding return on investment (ROI) from these relationships and their relevant stakeholders.
The Universe needs to re-invent the purpose of relationships – both in business and in life.
Relationships are at an all time low because of selfish and conditional reasons and attachments.
There are breakdowns at every level of our society and systems; from homes to workplaces, hospitals to religious and social groups.
We must be able to opt into opportunities to serve others without directly asking for a return on investment.
Obviously, as a sales enablement advisor, I am the first to admit that this is different in a pure business transaction context. However, for the most part of our other relationships, this is largely possible.
We must be able to exchange love and hear-felt gratitude as the currency for interaction. This triggers the ripple effect across the world.
It may appear that we don’t necessarily get a direct return on our immediate interaction. Someone else does. In the true essence of this concept, we also get the return on someone else’s investment. That is what the ripple effect is all about. The ONENESS.
It comes with the biggest frequency of vibration and transcends global human boundaries as we know it.
This works, regardless of whether we’re interacting with people face-to-face, over the phone, online or even energetically.
Re-purpose the intention of your relationships. Then, sit back and enjoy the ripple effect you receive multi-fold from others and possibly, including the person you directly dealt with.
So, how do we start cultivating habits and incorporating this way of being into our business and personal relationships?
Now, you didn’t think I’ll bring you this far and not give you some actionable advise, did you?
Here are 3 top tips I recommend you consider
- Review your personal and business relationships today.
- Pick one that you want to activate; using this concept.
- Initiate an action in this relationship without the intention of a direct return.
Never lose sight of the power of our collective consciousness as humans. This unconditional action will take on the ripple effect and come back to you in the form of a reward greater than you ever imagined. It happens; sooner or later.
