“How can I build my sales pipeline?” This is a question that a number of my coaching clients asked recently as we are getting close to the end of the first half of 2012. One source is your existing client base. There may be additional services they need from you and/or they may refer you to other people. The likelihood of their providing these leads is based on two things. First, you ask. Second, you have provided great value. This week’s Tip focuses on the second point.

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands! This song came to mind when I read this week’s Tip by Sal Monastero. If you love what you do and want to inspire your people, show your positive feelings.
I particularly enjoyed this week’s Tip by Angie Morgan and Courtney Lynch due to its honesty – some days you just don’t feel like a leader. They provide their recommendations for “damage control” on those days.
