Stop blaming the client
Stop blaming the client - Author: @mizko - It’s time we take ownership and responsibility for our processes.⁣ The other day I posted a post about ‘7 signs of a client you should avoid’. I was surprised by the overwhelming response. 
Today I wanted to flip the coin over and share another perspective. ⁣ ⁣ In the creative industry we tend to point the finger a lot. Even launch websites called ‘ClientsFromHell’. ⁣ It’s funny and all but on a more serious note, I genuinely believe creatives need to take on more responsibility of how they handle their processes. ⁣ ⁣ Like any relationship, it’s a two way street.⁣ ⁣ We need to acknowledge and realise our own wrong doings, before pointing the finger.⁣ ⁣ - When a client wants to chat more, it could be because you’re not providing them enough clarity.⁣ - When a client is not convinced by your solution, it could be because your design process isn’t collaborative enough.⁣ - When a client tries to bargain with you, it could be because you’re not selling or building enough trust/confidence with them. They don’t value you as much as you do with yourself. ⁣ ⁣ There’s always 2 sides to every story.⁣ ⁣ I’d love to know how often do you reflect on your own progress. ⁣
