10 Essential Questions For Managing & Controling The Conversation And Advancing The Sale Toward Your Close by Diane Shawe

It can be challenging at the best of times to understand what your prospect wants in order to tailor your product or services to their needs.

The secret is that once a client’s needs are understood and a relationship is established, asking for business becomes an extension of the roles of counselor and problem-solver possibly a familiar and comfortable roles for business entrepreneurs.

With these 10 questions firmly in place, practice them so that asking for business may not be so daunting. Use these questions to bring the focus of the sales conversation back to YOUR goals

Diane Shawe copy of ebook from coffee break series1. “Let Them Know You Are Listening”

Repeat back what your customer has said. Make sure you show youare listening to their EMOTIONS as well as their words and logic.

So what I hear you saying is that you are a little bit _______?

Tell me more about that feeling. OK, what do you think we could do about that?

2. “Get Their Opinion”

Everybody loves to think that their opinion is valued. By getting prospect’s opinion you find out what they are most interested in, and more importantly you will learn what NOT to discuss or emphasize

In your opinion, does this idea fit the goals of your company?

Why or why not?

3. “Narrow It Down”

Sometimes customers will get confused by too many options. If you can narrow down their decision to fewer choices, then they are less likely to put off a buying decision.

If I was a magician and I could just magically give you the perfect package of your choice, which one would it be?

4. “Show Optimism”

Try to get a positive response from your customer. Optimistic suggestions and questions will usually get optimistic responses

I am sure that you won’t mind me downloading this product detail sheet, would you? …

If you knew it would help you to make a better decision about which model is right for you?

5. “Be Negative To Elicit A Positive Response”

Predict a negative outcome in order to give your customers a chance to help you, or give you more information.

If you predict a negative outcome, your customers may even offer up solutions that would not have thought of otherwise.

You’re not interested in our free bonuses, are you?

6. “Super Polite Flattery Favors”

Be polite, and people will respond. Add a little flattery and then don’t be afraid to ask a favour I know your job is super complicated and you have a lot on your plate right now.

Instead of having to deal with selling your boss on this idea,

how about you just let me to the heavy lifting?

7. “Get Them Talking Again”

Keep the conversation going to avoid “uncomfortable silences.” Bring them back around, and keep them talking.

What exactly do you mean by that?

That’s really very, very interesting.

Would you mind telling me more?

8. “Brain stormers”

Get your prospect to think about the rewards and benefits of using or owning your product or service. Get them to think about various possibilities.

Get them to think creatively.

Have you thought about how easy this will be, and how much time this will save you once you get it going?

Just imagine all that extra time you’ll have to focus on what’s important!

Imagine what could you do with that extra time?

Let’s make a quick list

9. “Take Their Temperature”

Find out exactly how they feel – both positive and negative. This will obviously give you more information on which benefits to pitch, and how to close the sale.

Q The way you see it, in what different ways are we BETTER than the competition?

In what ways do you think we are WEAKER?

10. “Focus on identifying and solving their problems”

Find out exactly what they are concerned about which stimulated them to enquire about your services or product further. This will give yyou more information and better help you to tailor your proposal an quotation.

Q How did you see this product or service solving your main concerns

Or

Q what main concerns did you see our services or product solving?

Bargaining vs Negotiating

Although people often think that negotiating is the same as bargaining, it is not.

Negotiating is a process, and bargaining is one stage of that process. There are three other stages of negotiating, and even those are tempered by timing, intuition, and flexibility to the process.

I am not going to list all of the, but I will set out some of the real nuggets you should put in place to establish a firm ground for all considerations.

1. Do your Research

When doing research and preparing for negotiations, there are three important considerations:

  • Collecting facts
  • Knowing priorities
  • Knowing principles

The facts that you collect are all the direct and indirect information that you will need to back you up during negotiations. With access to information today, it is a much simpler task than ever to accumulate all kinds of data and statistics.

For example, if you are preparing to purchase a vehicle or a house, plenty of information is available, such as comparable properties and prices.If you are preparing to negotiate a raise, or are negotiating salary increases at work, then comparable wage statistics, the history of the organisation and its mission and values, previous experiences in the collective bargaining process, and strategic plans are all important concepts to understand.

2. Focus on your priority

Knowing priorities means having a good understanding of what you want from the negotiation. You also need to know what the other party wants. Understanding your principles, both as a negotiator
and as an individual, will help you to form and present a case that is compelling and believable.

Understanding the principles of the other party can also be very helpful to you. A little more research can help you to understand what the organisation’s beliefs are, how they have approached previous negotiations, what terms seem to be more important to them than others, and what terms they could be willing to be flexible with.

3. Identifying Your Walk Away Position (WAP)

When you establish your priorities, make sure you have a clear understanding of your Walk Away Position (WAP). What is the least that you will accept (or the highest price that you are willing to
pay)?

Establish your WAP value in your mind and keep it clearly available so that you do not get caught up in the heat of negotiating, either ending up with something you never wanted, or turning
down a deal that was better than your WAP.

If you are negotiating on someone else’s behalf, make sure that you know their WAP so that you do not make any mistakes in negotiating for them.

4. Identifying Your Best Alternative to a Negotiated Agreement (BATNA)

In addition to your WAP, you also need a Best Alternative to a Negotiated Agreement (BATNA) in your plan. Sometimes an issue can be settled before the bargaining phase begins if it meets your
criteria as a BATNA.

For example, if you are planning to purchase a home – which is often a very emotional decision – and the realtor comes to you with an offer that you can live with, and you get the home you want without having to participate in any heavy bargaining or entering into a price war, then you may have reached your BATNA.

Not all negotiations have to be bargained; sometimes, when you negotiate, you can lose the opportunity to get what might have been a BATNA if you had not been after such a bargain.

5. Working Within the Zone of Possible Agreement (ZOPA)

The Zone of Possible Agreement (ZOPA) is an area of overlap where the desired outcomes of both parties reside, and where both parties can live with the outcome. Once you reach a ZOPA, the finer details need to be worked out within the scope of what both parties
have already found is potentially working for them.

For example, if your business forecasting allows for a 2% salary increase each year for the next three years, and similar companies in your industry are offering the same, and the union is asking for 7% over four years, then youmay be within the ZOPA.In general, there are three possible outcomes to a negotiation.

  • Lose-Lose
  • Win-Lose
  • Win-Win

6. Getting Everyone’s Perspective

Gathering perspective is something that can take place throughout the negotiation process. It begins in the research phase, where the negotiator considers the needs of the members of an organisation
in conjunction with the strategic vision and mission of the negotiation.

This does not mean that everyone will get what they want in an agreement; rather, it means that all points of view are considered. There is no point in entering negotiations and reaching an agreement that ignores a section of stakeholders or breaks the law.

Gathering perspective can be a considerable undertaking, depending on the size and scope of the operation. This is one area where outside resources can be utilised (an outside firm conducting employee satisfaction surveys, for example)Diane Shawe Author available from amazon and google books

5 things to do this year to help reach your money goals

I hope you’re feeling thrilled about your future prospects for 2019 and make amazing things happen.

Like you some of us found 2018 rather challenging, but it has helped to shape us into who we will be over 2019. Here is a list of 5 things to put in place this month to help you focus and become more disciplined. A little tip, use your mobile phone diary to set up reminders.

Article by Diane Shawe

1 circlue

DEFINE YOUR WORD

Think about the year ahead and ask yourself what one word would best represent your dreams and direction for 2019. This is a powerful practice because no matter how busy or scattered we may get at various points in our 365 day journey, we’ll always have our word to hold onto and guide us through.

Here are some examples of words to consider (you can also think of them as themes for the year):

FOCUS, REST, COURAGE,

ABUNDANCE, MY VALUES,

SIMPLIFY, ELEVATE, ORGANISED,

SPIRITUALITY, LEGACY,

CHARITY, IMPLEMENT. PHEONIX

Take some time and really reflect on which word holds the most meaning to you in the pursuit of your personal goals. Then take a piece of paper, write your word on it and hang it where you can see it every day. You’ll find that more and more, your thoughts, decisions, and actions in the new year will flow in harmony with your word.

2 circle

CREATE YOUR READING LIST

As entrepreneurs, we know that reading great books for our personal and business development is essential if we really want to take things to a new level each year. However, if you’re like most entrepreneurs, you probably have a mountain of books that you are still intending to read and you know you have to be more selective about exactly which books you’re going to focus on (and implement!) in the year ahead.

So in 2019, instead of getting overwhelmed by it all, get intentional and put together a reading plan.

Here are some questions to help you create your list:

Which particular books will help me the most right now?

What area of my business am I resisting due to lack of knowledge?

Are there any books that I should read again and implement better this time?

3 circle

FOCUS ON ONE THING

With the beginning of a new year, it’s exciting to launch into everything we want to do all at once to improve our lives and our businesses, but that’s a recipe for getting quite overwhelmed and discouraged before too long.

There is so much value in focusing on one thing at a time. It’s better to work on 12 habits or goals one at a time, month by month, and successfully achieve them all in a year, than it is to work on everything all at once and only be able to to finish 2 or 3 due to lack of focus.

4 cirlce

MOVE PAST AN OLD FEAR

One of the things we love most about a new year is the feeling of a fresh start that it brings. Use the momentum of starting fresh to face a fear and do something you were afraid to do in 2018.

5 circle

SET A 90 DAY MONEY GOAL

It’s so important to set your goals around money and map out your plans for how you’re going to achieve them. Money loves clarity and the more clear you are about how much you want your business to grow and how you’re going to make it happen, the more you can expect to see results!

First, identify how much money you want to make in your business over the next 90 days. Working from the framework of a 90 day goal is particularly effective because it’s not too long or too short when it comes to achieving something amazing, so don’t be afraid to dream a little bit out of your comfort zone.

Next, map out what that looks like in terms of clients and sales. How many clients would you need in order to hit that goal? How many sales per month, per week, per day? By honing in on these numbers, you’ll be able to set your daily, weekly, and monthly goals with clarity and ease. Best of all, you’ll be able to focus on taking action and making it happen. 🙂

Six tips on how to avoid water retension

What Causes Water Retention and How to Avoid It

Are your feet, ankles, hands, or legs often swollen? This happens because of water retention, a condition known as edema. It is characterized by the accumulation of fluids in the tissues, circulatory system, and cavities.
Water retention, also known as fluid retention refers to an excessive build up of fluid in the circulatory system, body tissues, or cavities in the body. Up to 70% of the human body consists of waterwater exists both inside and outside our body’s cells. Edema is the medical term for swelling.

The main causes of edema are pregnancy, not being physically active, premenstrual syndrome, sedentary lifestyle, and certain medications. But, swelling can also occur during a long flight.

Most cases of edema are not serious. However, sometimes it can indicate heart failure or kidney disease, so it’s important to treat it on time.

Here are the main causes of edema as well as suggested ways of how to reduce the swelling and avoid water retention, as long as there’s no underlying condition.

6 Causes of Edema and suggested solutions

1. Excessive Sodium Intake

If your diet is based on sodium-rich foods and if you don’t drink enough water, your body will use its water reserves. This, in turn, results in water retention. The human cells can expand up to 20 times with the help of water. So, the important thing here is to know which foods contain high amounts of sodium, so you can start avoiding them.

Besides salt, sodium can also be found in canned vegetables, some condiments, processed meat, and other processed foods. On the other hand, Celtic and Himalayan sea salt can reverse the water retention caused by table salt.

2. Magnesium Deficiency

Lack of magnesium can lead to edema. This mineral is vital for most functions in the body, so insufficient amounts of it can hinder the proper function of the body. This will eventually lead to water retention.

One research showed that taking 200 milligrams as a daily dose of magnesium can reduce water retention in women with premenstrual symptoms. Increasing the intake of magnesium-rich foods or taking it as a supplement can relieve this condition.

Here are the foods which contain the highest amount of magnesium: dried fruits, spinach, dark green veggies, dark chocolate, nuts, avocados, peas, and whole grains.

3. Lack of Vitamin B6

Deficiency in vitamin B6 can lead to edema since it’s involved in many aspects of water balance in the body.

A study published in the Journal of Caring Sciences involved women who experienced water retention caused by premenstrual syndrome. They took vitamin B6 on a daily basis, and their condition was soon improved. This vitamin is water-soluble, so it requires many cofactors to function properly. Therefore, it’s best to obtain it from whole foods.

Foods high in this vitamin are potatoes with skin, chicken, lean beef, turkey, tuna, dried fruit, bananas, sunflower seeds, and pistachio nuts.

4. Lack of Potassium

This mineral is vital for the proper function of cells, tissues, and organs in the body. It plays a significant role in the maintenance of normal water balance in the body.

Potassium deficiency can result from not consuming enough potassium-rich foods but high amounts of salt. This will eventually lead to edema. Lack of this mineral can cause weight gain, muscle spasms, and cramps. Potassium can reduce water retention due to its ability to reduce the sodium levels.

You can find this mineral in most fruits, especially in watermelon, honey melon, and rockmelon.

5. Dehydration

Dehydration occurs when you don’t drink enough water. This condition forces the body to retain water in order to survive, resulting in swellings in your feet, ankles, hands, or legs. Luckily, it’s not hard to improve your condition. Just drink enough water and potassium-rich juices, and avoid soda drinks and coffee.

6. Excessive Consumption of Processed Foods

As we mentioned, processed foods are full of sugar and sodium – one of the leading causes of water retention. But, they also contain artificial food additives whose toxic nature puts a load on the kidneys and the liver.

Foods which contain high amounts of sugar including artificial sweeteners can cause spikes in the levels of insulin and blood sugar.

Therefore, we recommend avoiding processed foods as much as you can.

How safe is your business, staff, customers and assets?

Deterrence through Preparedness Security Awareness Training Courses by Diane ShaweI am frightened by what has been happening recently and would like to help as many companies and business strengthen their security awareness by keeping busy instead of being scared.

article by Diane Shawe

The main purpose of this post is to see how I could contribute by bringing to your attention three courses that I have that could help your organisation keep it’s personnel, customers and assets as safe as possible.

I want to do something, and I hope you will help me to be of use in a time when we, the general public can only defend with preparedness.

No matter how large or small your company is, you need to have a plan to ensure the security of your personnel, customers, organisation and assets. Such a plan is called A Security Awareness Preparedness Scheme.

Whether yours is five or 200 pages long, whether you have 4 or 5000+ staff the process of creating a security program will make you and your team think holistically about your business or organisation’s security. A security awareness scheme provides the framework for keeping your company at a desired security level by assessing the risks you face, deciding how you will mitigate them, and planning for how you keep the program and your security practices up to date.

With no time to waste, now is the time to make that investment by training as many of your employees to become not just aware but knowledgeable about security practices.

Business disruption can be a very expensive experience and sometime hard to come back from. Download Course manual by clicking here

1. Why is security important?

Lapses in security places personnel, customers, assets, staff and property at risk.  Any responsible employer will wish to take all reasonable steps to protect the lives of its staff, customers and to protect its assets.

With the increasing serious and unanticipated security incidents recently this has also placed the provision of assistance at risk, with the danger that personnel, customers and assets, when assistance is needed in an emergency an overstretched team may be curtailed.  If personnel, customers and staff are aware of how to become more secure, they are able to do a more effective job in both awareness, prevention and bringing assistance to those who need it.

Getting the world back to work with skills we can trust

Keeping the workforce safe

Common protection measures which includes gates, guards, locks, alarms and safes are not enough to be relied on anymore.  Other protection measures are decided on according to the threat in each specific context and we are now in a new paradigm when information on the wider context will assist the working general public to become more vigilant and safe.

There may be some threats to personnel, customers and assets, organisation’s which do not arise from the local community at all.  These may include attacks from terrorist groups, whose decision-makers may be distant or even in a different country, orchestrating violence against personnel, customers and assets, and other organisation’s for political reasons.  If so, protection measures will need to take these threats into account and a higher degree of protection is necessary if the work is to continue.  In this case managers will usually consider whether the work should stop, either temporarily or permanently.

2.  Deterrence vs Awareness

Deterrence is a further security approach used by some organisations, notably the police and the military.  They deter attack by threatening retaliation against anyone who attacks them.  This is not an option available to personnel, customers, and localised organisations, whose principles forbid them to attack anyone, or to threaten attack.

The sole possible exception is when personnel, customers and organisation’s can become aware through training to heighten their levels of awareness.

1.2       Risk = Threat x Vulnerability

You may be able to do nothing about the level of threat around you, but you can probably do a great deal to reduce your level of vulnerability in two main ways:  To avoid getting into an accident for instance by:

  • Reducing the chances of an incident happening (e.g. by driving slowly, improving locks, or introducing a neighbourhood watch system)
  • Reducing the impact of an incident (e.g. by wearing seatbelts, or limiting the amount of cash held in the safe)

By reducing your vulnerability, you reduce the risk that the threat will become reality and have a serious impact on you and your business.  A major part of good security management is reducing vulnerability in every way possible.

Why mentoring for women running a business has become critical

mentoring by diane shaweWhy Mentoring is important

Article by Diane Shawe

It was revealed last year in an article that young women are more likely to fall into personal insolvency than young men of the same age. The figures, which were quite alarming if you’re a woman, showed that nearly eight out of 10,000 young women became insolvent last year, compared to just four men in 10,000

“Mentor: Someone whose hindsight can become your foresight”

Mentoring is a powerful personal and development tool. It is a partnership between two people (mentor and mentee) normally working in a similar field or sharing similar experiences – or conversely, perhaps you are looking to enter a new field and would like support from someone who has been there before. It is a helpful, supportive relationship based on mutual trust and respect.

What is a mentor

Mentoring is most often defined as a professional relationship in which an experienced person (the mentor) assists another (the mentoree) in developing specific skills and knowledge that will enhance the less-experienced person’s professional and personal growth.

What is a Coach

Coaching is training or development in which a person called a “coach” supports a learner in achieving a specific personal or professional goal. The learner is sometimes called a “coachee”. Occasionally, “coaching” may mean an informal relationship between two people, of whom one has more experience and expertise than the other and offers advice and guidance as the latter learns; but coaching differs from mentoring in focusing on competence specifics, as opposed to general overall development.

Some coaches use a style in which they ask questions and offer opportunities to challenge the learner to find his or her own answers. This helps the learner find answers and new ways of achieving their goals based on their own values, preferences and perspectives.

So your mentor is your guide who can help you to find the right direction, be a sounding board and support you in developing solutions for you and your business or lifestyle.

Getting Financed – A fair share for Women startup

Start-Up Loans are funded by the Government both for people starting up and new businesses trading for less than two years. They are easy to apply for and typically people borrow between £2,000 and £10,000, although there is no limit. Enterprising Women’s parent company YTKO has now been approved as a national provider of Start-up Loans, which means that Enterprising Women can now bring them to you!

WHY PRE START UP SUPPORT IS ALSO IMPORTANT

The Enterprising Women  also offer a wealth of pre-start support through their sister organisation Outset, as well as post-finance mentors to help keep you on track. So if you’re a new business (trading for less than two years months) looking to fund your growth or just starting out, – or know someone who is – click here to find out more.

The Start Up Loans Company is a UK-wide, government backed scheme, which offers a repayable loan to individuals over the age of 18 who have a viable business idea but no access to finance. The scheme funds businesses in every sector. As well as financial backing, all loan recipients are given access to a mentor, free training events and exclusive business offers.

If you are yet to start, or in your first two years of trading, then you will probably be eligible to apply. People typically borrow between £2,000 and £10,000 (the maximum loan is £25,000) and all loans come at a competitive, fixed rate of interest at 6.2% APR.

 

Do women still derail each other in the workplace?

women derailing women by Diane Shawe 2015Are women other women’s own worst enemies at work?

article by Diane Shawe M.Ed

There was an interesting essay a few weeks ago in the New York Times about workplace infighting among women. The piece describes how women can sometimes derail each other in the office. Is this true? One study by the Workplace Bullying Institute, for example, found that female office bullies, who commit verbal abuse, sabotage performance or hurt relationships, aim at other women more than 70% of the time. (Male workplace bullies, by contrast, tend to be equal-opportunity offenders, targeting both men and women.)

There are several theories why some women hurt other women in the workplace, but surely this must also apply to men… so lets check out some of the theories

Scarcity:

One is scarcity: there are few spots at the top, so women at higher levels are reluctant to help other women who could potentially usurp them.

D.I.Y Bootstrap Theory:

Another reason a bit more basic is called the “D.I.Y. Bootstrap Theory.” Some women reason that if they had to pull themselves up on their own, why should they help anyone else?

Fear of showing Favoritism;

Women may also be worried about showing favoritism toward other women, so instead, they can end up going too far in the other direction and go out of their way to not help their female colleagues.

Over Emotional:

And then there’s the idea that some women are over-emotional, which leads them to take challenges or criticism personally, hold grudges or get caught up in petty arguments.

The way forward

Becoming simply aware of these habits is not quite enough anymore “If we really want to clear one of the last remaining hurdles to gender parity and career success, let’s start by really understanding how to be resilient, focused, leadership skills, personal wealth management and personal profiling.

Readers, what do you think? If you’re a woman, have you experienced being derailed or undermined at a time of importance both to you career and self-esteem? How did you handle it? Have managers or colleagues been more supportive of your performance or do you feel like games are being played well if your tired of being tired here is a seminar for you…

Five Steps to avoiding being undermined and derailed Seminar 17th February 2015 at the Doubletree Hilton Westminster Hotel.
Five experienced speakers who will focus on:

How can you make yourself be heard without shouting?
Do you feel like you are constantly being derailed?
Are you uncomfortable about how to present yourself in front of a camera?
Do you need clarity on what type of Manager/leader you are?
Are you at that point in your life where you seriously need to carve out a financial haven for the future?

Manisha Gaur discusses why Global Accreditation is leading the way to unified integrated accreditation

The rise of International Accreditation

News Title

by AVPT Global

For decades, regional accreditation bodies had been granting educational institutes with primary accreditation after evaluating them on a regional scale. However, as globalization grew, it became extremely important for educational institutes to be acknowledged world over so that when students look for credit transfer and international job opportunities, it does not stand in the way.  This gave rise to International Accreditation. This topic was represented by Ms. Manisha Gaur, Director Operations at Venkateshwara Group of Institutions, India.

She discussed how globalization has affected today’s education systems and the education providers are looking forward to establishing a centralized education system.

The phenomenon is occurring, but at a very slower pace and this is where the accreditation agencies have to play their role. They need to set up a unified and integrated accreditation system for all the educational institutions globally so the standardisation of education can be done successfully.

A smarter way to study with www.avptglobal.com

A smarter way to study with http://www.avptglobal.com

Regional accreditation bodies have existed and also evaluated education providers on a regional scale, thereby granting them Primary accreditation.  However, the rapid growth of globalization calls for a global entity which can evaluate them against internationally proven standards of education and grant them an internationally recognized Secondary Accreditation.

This secondary accreditation is basically known as International Accreditation. With international accreditation, the school, college or university will be internationally accepted. Students of such educational institutes can further study in the educational institute of their choice in any country without the tension of their credits transfer and also, work with any employer without the tension of their degree acceptance.  For these reasons, it has also become a major deciding factor by students when selecting their higher educational institutes/ universities. Additionally, it has also become important to employers. Employers globally feel more comfortable hiring students from internationally accredited institutes.
Based on this information, she presented why international accreditation is needed globally and how, in the last couple of years, it has gained massive importance, even more than national and regional accreditation bodies. Her topic also informed the participants as to how International accreditation bodies evaluate the institute on the basis of their academic and organisational management and provide them with international accreditation. This international accreditation not only enhances the institute’s profile regionally but also internationally which is why, today, we see a majority of the students and institutes around the world demanding international accredited programs.
About the Speaker

Manisha Gaur is a highly respected member of the Indian education community. She is not only involved in the teaching of the students but she takes it as a responsibility where she wants to develop students into becoming pillars of the society. She has been associated with the Indian Education Board and the National Accreditation body where she has conducted various presentations and has published various researches. She has also received numerous awards from the regional and international community for her services.
