Secrets to success at Spinifex

Do what you say you are going to do.

There that is it. Not hard. Not that secret. But enormously powerful.  If you don’t do it you will lose all credibility. Without credibility and rapport the whole foundations of Spinifex are compromised.  We are only as good as our last gig and only as good as our word.

Empty promises suck wind

If you don’t mean it with heart and precision, then just don’t say it. You don’t want to be labelled a ‘gunna’ you want to be labelled a doer. Our clients, your work colleagues and other people in your life want someone they can rely on.  You can’t rely on a gunna.. because they are always gunna do something but they never seem to actually get there.

Of course you can’t always do what you said you would. Minds change and some prerogatives need their exercise. Batteries die, tragedies happen, the best intentions can get rained out. When you can’t or choose not to honour your word, then say so. Tell the truth, tell it fast, deliver it with sincerity and care.

It’s all about managing expectations.  Do you have a timeline? When did you say you would deliver it? Have you done it?  All you have to do is do what you say you’re going to do consistently and you’ll set yourself apart from the majority of your competition.

It’s not hard but it is life changing.

    Great. Like the bit about managing expectations. Do you have a timeline? I think we have improved greatly on last year.
