TOPIC #1: Inexpensive Ways to Create a Better VIP Check-In Experience
Traditional Client Check-Ins are coach-centered. They are about tracking numbers and collecting client feedback. Clients dread them!
They give flat answers (or don’t respond at all) and you keep having the same conversations over and over again.
We’re going to cover the common mistakes we keep making with traditional check-ins like:
- Reinforcing their obsession with numbers and the scale
- Avoiding talking about resistance or failure
- Over-highlighting “wins” + motivating them to keep them going
- Assuming they don’t want this bad enough or aren’t ready to change
- Glossing over successful weeks with a sigh of relief without further exploration
Plus five powerful questions you need to be asking your clients every single week (and what to do with the answers you’re getting when they DO open up and go deep with you).
We cover the best practices for client check-ins and also talk about the ways to individualize the way you check-in with your clients for a true VIP-experience.
