How Can You NOT Get Attached?
I am the professional. It is my job to listen, advise, educate and negotiate. Sometimes it’s also my job to console, to encourage to “pick up”, and establish ground rules.
When you do those things and become someone’s trusted advisor, how can you help but form an attachment?
Clients tell you things,…. sometimes even things they shouldn’t. They allow you a glimpse into their personal lives and relationships, their hopes and dreams, and downfalls and disappointments. They confide in you, count on you and depend on you to help them navigate their sale or purchase.
I think it’s partly my nature to get drawn in…to want to know and to be a part of their lives.
So, when there is trust in a professional relationship, how can you not get attached?
