This post is part of our Monthly Tips series.

I’m taking the week off to enjoy a little year-end down time. In the meantime, look for inspiration for your 2020 intentions in the free and no-strings-attached Get Real manifesto poster and eBook.

The manifesto captures the unconventional wisdom that I believe transforms client relationships, drawing on my 25+ years in the consulting industry and 13 years in partnership with Charlie Green and Trusted Advisor Associates. It also happens to be the focus of that book proposal I’m working on.

With an eye toward 2020, are there particular tenets that speak to you more than others?

Two leap off the page for me: “Mistakes are inevitable; how you handle them reveals your true character” (per my latest humbling Weekly Tip) and “You get what you give.”

Consider using the manifesto as a daily reminder of what it takes to be a role model for client relationships done right.

Here’s to a kick-a**—and unconventional—new year.
