Be open to different solutions

0.25 CPD Units Online
During the negotiation process we want to achieve the best possible outcome. While we certainly want a solution that is good for both parties, the reality is we all want to reach a solution that is beneficial for us individually. This is natural and to be expected. With that said, there are a number of ways to go about achieving this goal, some good, others not. Sometimes we start the negotiation process with a specific solution in mind, and thus miss the opportunity for an even better agreement. Increasing your flexibility and willingness to listen to and consider a variety of solutions will always be beneficial. Even if you don’t like the idea or are unsure of its benefits, being open-minded will never hurt and will always help, each and every time.

By completing this course, you will know how to stay open to various and creative solutions.

Build Value to Sell

1 CPD Unit Online recording    
Knowledge area:
  •  Practice Management and Business Skills

Selling a large firm is easy ... well relatively easy, when compared with the sale of a smaller firm. So many of these simply close their doors as equity holders quit or retire. But there are eight growth areas where value can be readily built and six selling 'plays' where this greater value can be realised.

The six selling 'plays' that John has developed are:

  1. Intellectual Assets ... only
  2. Absorption ... can include the consultants / advisors, and results in the sale of the enterprise to an established larger firm
  3. Internal Protege ... can include the consultants / advisors, and results in the sale of the enterprise (boutique) to a lead consultant / advisor from within the enterprise
  4. External Protege ... can include the consultants / advisors, and results in the sale of the enterprise to a lead consultant / advisor with a consulting / advisory background
  5. Collaboration ... may not include the consultants / advisors, and is an interim step towards the Absorption 'play'
  6. Build & Consolidate ... effectively a 'do nothing for a while play' ... just continue to build the current enterprise.

By the end of the session you will have a reasonable idea of which 'play' is right for you.

Key Learning Outcomes:

  • The ability to identify which of eight growth areas have the best potential for growth within your enterprise
  • An understanding of the specific tactics for growth within those potential areas, sufficient for you to identify where to take action
  • An insight into six selling 'plays', sufficient for you to identify and rank those which you will further investigate in detail.

Building trust in the virtual environment

0.25 CPD Units Online
One of the most important aspects of leading others is building trust. Trust sets the tone for any working relationship and creates the environment for great work to flow. When trust is present, leaders know their employees are working hard to achieve their goals and objectives, while at the same time employees know their leader believes in them to do the job they were hired to do—without the need to continually check in and monitor progress. When trust does not exist, leaders are weary, and are not sure if their employees are doing what they’re supposed to do. So leaders call and email, and call again. Yet constant phone calls and emails to monitor progress wear employees down. This lack of trust hurts work relationships as well as performance because employees are left to question every decision they make, and are not free to do their work in the way they think is best. 

By completing this course, you will learn how to shift your mindset to successfully build trust and lead others in the virtual environment.
