Look 180 feet ahead instead of 90 feet ahead, and embrace proactive communication as a way of life. Anticipating Needs is all about staying one step—or more—ahead of your client.
In small doses over time you can: visualize, articulate, and share the range of client outcomes; bring out emerging and undefined needs; and provide answers to questions you know the clients will ask—before they ask. In doing so you ensure your client knows what to anticipate and when to anticipate it.
