Outside of the busy consulting life, I love growing orchids; I found it is a good way to balance the fast-paced work life – reminding me to slow down and enjoy the inspiration and creativity brought by nature itself.
I bought my first orchid many years back and, at that time, the plant was a bit mythic to me – incredibly beautiful blooms that can last for months, but also very difficult to make it rebloom if one doesn’t provide it with the right growing conditions and care. After research, different experiments and patience, I finally successfully rebloomed my first orchid- and I was super excited! Since then, I have built a small collection of orchids at home that I deeply care about.
I found that the success formula in growing orchids shares essential elements that are key to building great client relationships – Deeply care about clients’ interests, be curious about their challenges, understand their needs, and take a hands-on approach to solving their problems.
