Turn Grain into Bread: Building Your Successful Peacemaking Practice

September 21, 2016

Do you remember the story of the Little Red Hen?

The hen found some grains and thought to plant and harvest them to turn into bread. At each stage in the process the hen asked who would help. Not the cat, not the duck, not the frog. When it came time to eat the bread everyone was willing, but the hen enjoyed the bread all to herself.

Many people in a private professional practice must rely upon themselves to build, market and grow their business. You are responsible for developing fruits from your labour. However, developing a successful practice takes time and its own skill set.

Chief among those skills are the ability to:

  1. Develop and deliver innovative, appealing and flexible services;
  2. Differentiate yourself from other professionals in a positive way;
  3. Convey your differentiation and services to others;
  4. Convert referrals into clients by meeting their needs.

The degree to which professionals can master those skills, their practice can grow and thrive.

Even if you use outside resources to promote your practice, you still must master those skills because most outside resources rely on your instruction and direction. Like any other skill, those skills can be learned and mastered.

If you are a collaborative lawyer, mediator, mental health professional or divorce financial professional, it would be my pleasure to see your practice succeed. In addition to this workshop November 4th just north of Toronto, I am available for consultation and coaching. Workshops can also be provided for groups and organizations.

I am Gary Direnfeld and I am a social worker. Hope to see you November 4th!
