    14:55   Make Difficult Clients a Thing of The Past (with the help of your perfectly formed team)

    Imagine if your more difficult clients stopped being quite so difficult, image too if all of your team members all worked in perfect harmony and they all loved their jobs.  It is time to stop imagining and start believing.  If the question that comes to mind as a consequence of the aforementioned is how?  The answer is iMA.

    The universal language of iMA is a simple way of observing and understanding the differences in people, then connecting with them on their wavelength. When this happens communication, trust, understanding, co-operation and sales go up, and stress and tension go down.  Every person has an iMA colour (or style) and jobs have iMA colours too.

    Ashley Boroda, who has worked with professional services firms of all shapes and sizes for many years, will steer us through who is who, who is best to be where; ensuring that all the right people are in the right jobs and the jobs are a perfect fit.   The days of one size fits all solutions are gone!
