I’m sharing a great post today from The Agitator, one of the blogs that I read regularly.
The centerpiece of the post is a painfully funny video skewering the worst of client/agency meetings.
Too often we’re order takers instead of strategic counselors. Not often enough do we push back on clients and partner with them to get to a better place.
A couple of weeks ago, during a strategic planning session with a room full of senior level folks, my client said to me: “I hate you right now. I know you’re right, but I really hate you.” He came up to me at the break to apologize, but I told him I considered it one of the best professional complements I’d received.
Please share your horror stories and success stories. Oh, and subscribe to The Agitator. It’s good stuff.
