Thanks, Carly Simon for letting me adapt your lyrics to this posting.
I get referral calls a lot and have nice discussions with potential LinkedIn coaching clients for 4 one-on-one sessions.
I provide them with a detailed curriculum of what we will cover week by week.
Some candidates respond affirmatively or negatively. At least I know where I stand with them.
Some, however, can’t make up their minds. They are stuck in the paralysis of KNOWING they have to do something, but for some reason can’t pull the trigger: can’t get out of their own way, as I like to say.
One such potential coaching client from last fall whom I know needs my services–and he knows it too–responded to my third nudge to see what was his intent-yea or nay. He said he would look further into my proposal later this week.
His saga of paralysis continues…I’ll let you know if he twitches.
