“Why should anyone be led by you?”

This is the story of how I answered this question for myself.

(the answer might surprise you) 👇
Back in 2010, I was looking back at a long corporate career improving and implementing business processes.

We were internal account managers.

On one side we had the central group defining strategies, standards & tools.

The other side: people implementing those standards.
I was in the middle.

"Selling" the new functionality to the implementation teams.

Reporting back all the problems, challenges, and bugs.

There were a number of projects going on at the same time.

9 simple guiding #relationshipfirst principles for any #CSM 👇🏼
1. Taking charge.

Clients bring lots of topics to the table.

What do customers really want to achieve?

Taking charge means taking the conversations to a deeper level.
2. Showing Up

We've all experienced it.

Priorities come in the way. A client relationship is left hanging.

And one day, the client kisses you goodbye. Or not.

They never come back.

The worst: you didn't expect the break-up.

Showing up means checking in every now and then.
