I got to rant the other day about Integrity and Money in the selling of services and products.
Money is a loaded topic that I’ll be talking about on the Fearlessly Questioning Podcast . In preparation for that event I did a rant and zeroed in on the selling process, particularly of coaching services, that can easily cross a line between integrity filled value and coerciveness.
Here’s the Rant about Integrity, Money and Selling.
It’s been a big few weeks of coming out quite strongly with my beliefs about entrepreneurship, business, coaching, selling, meaning and integrity.
When people hire a coach, their experience will soar when they work with someone whose values align with their own. I’ve found personally that when I work with a coach who has great skills but walks a different walk then me, there is a disconnect in my experience. Sometimes it takes me awhile to figure out what it is . Once I do, the entire unfolding comes clearly into focus. Like food, or clothing or anything else we have strong tastes about in life – different strokes for different folks. No one way is inherently right or wrong.
For you to hire me to help you solve your entrepreneurial challenges around meaning, marketing and money I feel you have a right see me for all that I am and be able to differentiate my coaching process and value foundation from that of others. Thus, in these podcasts and interviews being produced over the next few weeks, you’ll see me a bit edgy – possibly making some people squirm, others sit up and take notice. Some will turn me off. Others will pick up the phone and that is truly the point of stepping up and being fully transparent in my beliefs and process. That way you already have a good feeling about my values of deep integrity, kindness, honesty, independence and connection with nature.
As always, I love reading your comments and hearing how I could best help you on your entrepreneurial journey. Share one challenge you have with Integrity, Money and Selling!
