2. Make them feel heard
Ensure clarity on what your client has said. Repeat back to them, in their words.
Be aware if the message your sending by observing their body language and facial expressions. Eye and ears open! EVERYTHING the client says and does is critical information.
Now they have told you everything – YOU give them a solution that’s aligns with their values, motivation, desires, like and dislikes.
