The Professional's Guide to Business Development: How to win business in professional services

$34.95

When buying professional services, most clients will assume expert competence in the field. They are therefore not hiring a consultant, a lawyer, an insurance broker, an accountant or a financial adviser mainly on the basis of their expertise, but on factors such as price, and trust. To minimize the issue of price, professional firms need to ensure that the benefits of working with them are clear. They must identify the right prospects in the first place, and move from transactional relationships toward partnership ones. In this book, consultant Stephen Newton offers a repeatable and scalable methodology to develop these partnerships between professional services providers and their clients. "The Professional's Guide to Business Development" will enable professional services firms to: -Increase their hit rate in winning new clients and retaining existing ones -Qualify customers so that they are able to work selectively -Understand what drives clients at a deep emotional level (where decisions are taken) -Articulate in language that resonates with the individual client the value that they deliver -Move their relationships towards business partnerships rather than transactional interactions A companion website includes downloadable resources.

Personal Recovery and Mental Illness: A Guide for Mental Health Professionals

$74.90

Recovery is a concept which has emerged from the experiences of people with mental illness. It involves a shift away from traditional clinical preoccupations such as managing risk and avoiding relapse, towards new priorities of supporting the person in working towards their own goals and taking responsibility for their own life. This book sets an agenda for mental health services internationally, by converting these ideas of recovery into an action plan for professionals. The underlying principles are explored, and five reasons identified for why supporting recovery should be the primary goal. A new conceptual basis for mental health services is described the Personal Recovery Framework which gives primacy to the person over the illness, and identifies the contribution of personal and social identity to recovery. These are brought to life through twenty-six case studies from around the world.
