A drop of inspiration came to me the other day in reflection of my musical days… and I thought I’d share the idea with you. 🙂
Over the course of time you learn this business, one step at a time. You learn what needs doing, when. You gradually ease into what can initially be quite an overwhelming process, just like anything else you learn for the first time.
Working with property requires you to develop many ‘strings to your bow’, as it were.
However, you soon realise that building a successful property business is not all about you, it is about building your own skill set along with adding in the necessary skills which come from other, valued members of your team.
Adding all the fundamental elements and skills into the melting pot is very much like what happens when an orchestra comes together.
You have individually skilled musicians, all experts on their chosen instrument, who come together under one umbrella. This group is then ‘tuned’ and led by the conductor of the orchestra.
Now, it may seem that all the conductor does is wave his or her arms around a lot, but I can assure you it isn’t quite as simple as that!
As with all skilled craftspeople, becoming a great conductor takes time, practice and a developed set of skills.
It takes the ability to work with and understand people and all the parts they ‘play’.
It takes knowing how to get the best out of the players, when to push them and when to hold back.
Most of all, it takes care and attention to detail to get the best out of them and to create the music you love to hear.
If you can think of this analogy during course of your property endeavours, you will undoubtedly start to see how much sense it makes and how best you can ‘fine tune’ both yourself, and the team you work with, to get the best result.
This will breed mutual respect and a deeper level of understanding between you and, hopefully, many years of creating amazing music together. 🙂
So, on that ‘note’, how are your conducting skills going…?! (I know…full of them today!! 😉 )
