Who is Crazier... Our Clients... Or Us?
An old movie clip came to mind as I was going through these situations. From the classic 1976 movie Network... "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore." Click here for the clip.
While working through all this, Brad and I asked ourselves why we care so much to bend over backward to help crazy clients. We complain the whole time, but in the end it's about serving them and hoping all the extra effort is appreciated. I think it may be about our faith as Christians and our values. We just accept that sometimes you need to go the extra mile to meet the client's needs. We can always say NO, but we try our hardest not to have to. And at the end of the day, I think that is what makes each of us successful, going the extra mile.
OK... I'm done with my rant. Dr. Jeff invites you to lay down on my counseling couch and share your horror stories. What lessons have you learned dealing with the "problem orders" in your career?
Make it a great day!
