Whether you are a business owner or an employee of an organization, you have many opportunities to deliver a perfect pitch. Has this happened to you recently? You have prepared and delivered what you think is a perfect pitch only to find that you have thrown a curve ball that causes your client/customer to hit a strike or foul ball rather than a home run. The strike is that the potential client/customer avoids you by not returning your calls or e-mails and the foul ball is that they contact you to let you know that they have decided to give the business to your competitor. If you are an employee of an organization, the strike means that your colleagues are avoiding you and the foul ball is that the plum project or promotion that was yours for the taking has been given to someone else. In your shock, anger and disappointment at this turn of events, you decide that you will never do business with this client /customer again or you may decide to leave your team or organization. Rather than taking any immediate action, take some time to review your pitch and decide what went right and what needs improvement. Ask yourself these question: Was I singing the same tune or was I singing my own tune? Was I singing off-key or on key with my clients/customers or colleagues?
Once you have figured out what needs to be done, it’s time to stop looking back and to start moving forward. You realize that you want to have another chance to succeed.
