WOO is one of the thirty-four StrengthsFinder Themes. WOO is “Winning Others Over” and is one of my StrengthFinder Themes. I think WOO is so much more; it is what happens when we are courting or pursuing someone.
When you first start dating you put your best foot forward, you are more patient, and you make more of an effort to look and be your best. It’s about being your best and attracting someone. I wonder why we stop making the effort to look and be our best after time has passed. Not only do we stop giving our best, but sometimes we give our worst, or even our left overs.
It is easy to think about this concept (putting our best foot forward and then stopping) in an intimate relationship, but I want you to think about it in a business relationship. When you first go after a sale, you are dressed your best, show up early with excitement and energy and convince the client that your products or services are the best. But as time goes by and after several meetings with the client, you might get a little lax.
All of us get to choose where and how we will spend our hard earned money, but we often forget that clients have a choice to support us or not. We should always want to give our best in both our personal and professional relationships.
I want to give my clients more than they pay for by offering them free coaching with every AdvoCare order. I follow-up after presentations and send check-in emails to my coaching clients.
