Attract the Right Job or Clientele: What to Do When Communication Stops
There are occasions when communication between you and another stops. We hear the sounds of silence. This could be in the case of a friend, a hiring manager, or a client. The attempted tries to get in touch that follow don’t seem to help, and this can be troublesome. You have choices of how to respond.
The usual reaction is to wonder what you did wrong. You second-guess yourself. This only leads to stress and doesn’t resolve anything. A better approach is to recognize you did everything you could to encourage a dialogue.
Balance persevering vs. self-worth
An improved approach over second-guessing is to vary the communication style in the hope of connecting. You might send an e-card, or try to message online, but you also don’t want to undervalue your time or self-worth. If there is no response, let it be.
Chasing a relationship that isn’t meant to be will only drain your time and effectiveness, both of which negatively affect your bottom line. Focus instead on your better matched friends, hiring companies or clientele. This mirrors the sales philosophy to qualify and match. Doing so eliminates extra stress and allows you to perform to your best standards.
Sell Your Value – Always
You can probably tell by now that the scenario has happened to me a few times over. It’s frustrating at best. As previously stated, recognizing your self-worth builds value in you. Over time, a number of people went silent on me. I actually became accustomed to it, and let them have their space.
One person remained silent for over two years, but she and all of the rest eventually wrote a letter of apology saying how much they valued knowing me.
Walking away on occasion is very similar to a sales technique known as “the sales takeaway”. On occasion (not always) it may be appropriate to tell a prospective client, it’s possible your product is not for them. For some strange reason this has that prospective client paying keen attention.
The point of all of this is that sometimes, although you do your very best on job interviews or selling to a prospect, the communication seems to die. It completely ruins your day and sometimes even an entire week. It’s not worthwhile to allow this to happen. As long as you are certain you are performing at your best levels, you have nothing to regret.
