Exploring Expectations

Creating excellence demands that we explore expectations – our own and those of our prospects, clients and customers.

We come to every conversation and meeting with some level of expectation. Recognizing this – and setting these aside – is a life-long, necessary practice. Without this ability, our expectations act like blinders, preventing us from hearing and understanding the needs, wishes and hopes of those we seek to serve.

To explore and uncover the expectations of our prospects, clients and customers we must be fully present. We must acknowledge not only the information they share with us but also the words they choose, their tone of voice, and what they don’t say.

In this video, I share stories and ideas about expectations and how storyfinding supports us in recognizing them and gives us the information we need to deliver excellence.
