Pediatricians sometimes ask new parents to bring their offspring in for a "well-baby check-up". Which sounds both positive and useful.
It also works in the practice of law.
Like recent moms and dads who get a postcard suggesting a well-baby check-up, your clients will feel a brain tickle from the release of endorphins if you ask:
- How am I doing?
- What can I do better?
- Are we addressing/achieving the right issues/goals?
- Do we have the right people on our team?
- Should we switch our weekly calls to another day/time?
- Does this article of clothing make me look skinny/fat?
And so on.
Do it. Your clients will thank you.
