What is a discovery session and why is it completely FREE?
Imagine, you are in the grocery shop and you notice that beautiful piece of cucumber on the shelf. It is calling you, telling you how wonderful you are, begging you to take it home. You can go there, touch it, feel it, smell it. You can even taste it if you want. What I mean is that you will know what you buy. You know that the cucumber must smell like this and if it is not up to your expectations, you leave it. You have the chance to choose between cucumbers and pick the one that smells better.
You cannot do this when you apply for services. While you know that the guy who repairs dishwashers should come out and will use a few tools, might replace this or that and will work until your machine works perfectly well.
And what happens when you need somebody to give you advice? What about consultants? What about coaches? How will you know if they are the right cucumber for you?
This is our biggest challenge, to be honest. We know we smell good but we cannot really prove it. We know we can change your business numbers, we can bring you success or even make a difference in your life. We can only prove it if we get a chance at least one single time and someone hires us, trusts us and then tells others. You will don’t know until you try.
This is why most of us offer a free discovery session, a take-in session to see whether we fit together or not. The first consultation is about to see what you need from us and what we can offer to solve your problem. It is free because we don’t know in advance how it will work out. Being an advisor is not like selling cucumbers.
We, consultants, coaches, want to know what happens to you after we talked, our way of guiding you will change your life. The grocery guy wants to sell you high-quality cucumber but it is not his business what you do with that veggie after all. I want to know how you perform. I want to know what you do with my plans and suggestions, and if you do not follow my instructions, you will not get the desired result.
If I see that you are not willing to work with me, I will not take you. After the first session, I will gently send you away. Because I cannot take responsibility for something that is not dependent on me. This is why I do not take any payment before we commit to our common plans and goals. But how would you know what I can offer before you tell me what you need? You see now. I do not sell cucumber.
This is why I encourage everyone to contact me, talk to me, ask questions. I am not selling anything and you are not obliged to take a second session or opt in for anything.
