05 Oct Geniuses at Work: Blackbelt Island Intensive 2015
Attaining a harmonious working relationship takes a lot of time. It can be a very fragile one most especially if it is virtual. Just like between clients and their virtual assistants.
Establishing a great working relationship virtually between a client and VA will take a lot of work. Both the client and VA should find opportunities to get to know each other and work hand in hand along the way. It is an investment of time and effort from both parties and for sure they will attain a professional and harmonious working relationship.
The Much Awaited Face to Face
Last September 13 to September 16, 2015, the Blackbelt crew and Taki Moore were here in the Philippines. In partnership with CARVE Business Management Services, they debuted the much-awaited event called The Blackbelt Island Intensive.
This is the second time that the Blackbelt crew visited and did a workshop in Davao, but this time it was different. This year’s Island Intensive workshop debuts with one goal: to enhance the working relationship between a client and VA. It covers the important aspects in building effective working relationship of clients and VAs for number of reasons:
- How to ground the problems in their company and turn it into projects.
- How to communicate effectively.
- How to maximise function by being an asset to a client.
- Helping clients focus on their “genius”.
The workshop was held at Pearl Farm resort in the Island Garden City of Samal. Few of the CARVE VAs were there to join their clients. In fact, it was their first time to see their clients in the flesh. They all got to say one thing in common after the workshop and working together with their clients: it was an overwhelming experience.
Ninja’s Island Intensive Takeaways
After the 3 days intensive workshop with their clients, we got the chance to interview the CARVE VAs and ask them about their experiences. Here in this video, the ninjas were stoked to share their stories as they get to bond and work together with their clients.
The workshop is more like a “workcation” for the clients and VAs. Aside from enjoying the sun and sand, they were able to plan and strategize future projects. Overall, the clients and VAs were able to dynamically work together. Working on becoming game changers in life and in business.
