True or false? It’s important to adopt soft skills to align with your client on a personal level.
- True – finding areas of commonality will help you establish trust early on and open the conversation with your client.
- True – the most important thing is to make sure your client sees you as a friend. If your client likes you, they’re less likely to fire you.
- False – a client is paying you to provide a service, not be their friend. As long as you get the work done, you don’t need to worry about building a relationship.
- False – avoid talking to your client about anything besides work, since this ends up wasting valuable time.
