How to Convert Discovery Calls to Loyal Clients
May 23, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT
Your first interactions with a new client can be full of hurdles, but they are also an opportunity to kickstart a positive working relationship. In private practice, dietitians can get so excited about a potential new client that we forget about the importance of evaluating for the right fit. Sometimes, we may be overzealous about eating disorder recovery and a non-diet approach so we don’t speak to and empathize with our clients’ fears and hesitations. We can also be so anxious about whether a client will decide to work with us that we don’t effectively communicate the full benefits of our approach or may agree to a lower price point than what is sustainable for our practice.
This presentation will cover how to properly share your value, assess if a client is a good fit for your practice (and vice versa!), and build working relationships with your clients based on your integrity and boundaries from the beginning.
After attending this webinar, attendees will:
1. Identify the purpose and limitations of an exploratory discovery call.
2. Learn common pitfalls during the intake and assessment process and how to avoid them.
3. Understand how to assess for an ideal and clinically appropriate client fit.
4. Be able to communicate the value of their services and set boundaries that support a sustainable practice.
