Perfection or Good Enough? …Leveraging the Power of a Strengths-Based Partnership

21 Jan 2020 2:23 PM | Anonymous

Have you experienced this?

Your company’s exciting innovation is almost ready to introduce to your clients. You and your team are totally jazzed about the benefits it offers. You know it will be a home run and anticipate the rollout announcement any moment! Or, so you thought.

Just down the hall, another team is agonizing over extensive process definition and associated documentation to cover every possible circumstance that might arise before launching the product or service. “It has to be perfect!!” they say. Maddening, Right?!

On which side of this common conundrum do you most often land? While in leadership with global organizations, frustration over the tedious bureaucracy and paperwork required to take a project to the finish line was a regular occurrence.

It is now evident that sitting on the other side of that equation is an instinctive fit for me.  I have an innate tendency to ask lots of “What if...” and “If, then…” questions, especially about the impact of decisions on the stakeholders of stakeholders of stakeholders. My business partner, Shari Strong would tell you, quite accurately, that I am not truly satisfied that “it is perfect”, until the level of impact includes world peace and all the documentation and pretty fliers to prove it.  

“Perfection”, like “Paralysis by Analysis”, can impede progress toward business growth. How many times do we get caught up in the minutia of details that wouldn’t be a blip on most anyone else’s radar screen? I am fortunate to have a business partner who balances my propensity to dot every “I” and cross every “t” before moving forward and is also equipped with a natural compulsion to complete things. Because we have a mutual understanding and appreciation for what comes as naturally as breathing to each of us, we more quickly come to consensus on an approach that honors both of our Unique Genius.

When it comes to the product/service rollout scenario, we are easily able to arrive on the aspects of the product or service that will most serve our clients and move swiftly to get that in their hands. We then engage our clients in the refinement process. This approach allows both of us to play to our strengths while leveraging each other’s.

Lessons Learned:

1. The investment made in identifying, accessing and applying my Top 5 Talent Themes via the Clifton StrengthsFinder Assessment produces an ever-increasing ROI.

2. My Top 5 serve me flawlessly most of the time, however, there are circumstances when they can impede progress and frustrate others.

3. Leveraging the strengths of a partner, colleague or family member’s can amplify success.

    Dear sir!

    Sending newsletters of Your commercial offers via формам into the "Contact us" section to the sites of business organizations via all domain zones of the world in any languages.

    website =» xn----7sbb1bbndheurc1a.xn--p1ai

    This is a type of mailing using the feedback forms that are located in the contact section of the website and filled by our programme automatically with a rate of a few thousand feedback forms per 1 minute, while the alphanumeric code from the pictures (captcha) is also solved.
    After that, the e-mails including your commercial offers are sent to the mailboxes of businesses.
    When sending mailing by contact feedback forms, it turns out that each website sends a letter “to itself” and, therefore, all e-mails arrive in the inbox folder of the exact email in which the business receives the business information.

    Fast one hundred % informing of organisations and site owners about new offers.
    Search of new customers that other advertisements cannot find.

    Finding customers that cannot be found through other advertisements.

    1.100-percent delivery of business messages.
    2.Increase of the client base.
    3. Expansion of the your market share.
    4.Mailings based on regionality and topics.
    5. Sending information to directors.
    6. Demand study.
    7. Conducting marketing campaigns.
    8. Studying public opinion and conducting surveys.
    9. Notification speed.
    10. Price.
    11. Entering the international markets.

    Competitive advantages:
    1.When sending mailing by contact forms, all messages arrive in the inbox folder. When sending e-newsletters, this can reach up to five percent.

    2.When sending mailing by feedback forms it is possible to send a few million e-mails per day to inboxes. When sending e-mail newsletters a few thousands arrive in the inboxes, all the remaining ones often either are not delivered or arrive in the junk.

    3. When sending mailing by contact forms a letter does not get blocked by mail services because it is sent from different sites. When sending mass e-mails it is possible to send a few thousands of those but nevertheless all the IP addresses from which the mailing is sent will be banned.

    4. When sending mailing by contact forms the very little amount of macros is used to form headings and text of the letter. When sending e-newsletters, it is necessary to use «macros» (synonyms) for each word and create thousands different headings.

    5. A lot of organisations try to hide their electronic address and only leave a contact form for contacting with them.

    6. When sending e-newsletters, your commercial offer can be delivered to every employee of the firm, (which causes discontent) compared to mailing by feedback forms where the information is received at the e-mail address specifically set up for commercial offers.

    7.half of corporate emails are placed on free mail systems, they are badly "searchable" by e-mail address, but when sending mailing by contact forms through these mail systems, all messages are one hundred percent delivered to the recipients.

    8. Only thirty-forty % of companies are published in the directories within several years, and all the rest are already placed in our VOIS databases and are waiting for your commercial offers.
    It turns out that that mailboxes of businesses from directories are full of spam, and therefore they will not have such outcome as when sending mailing by contact forms using our new WHOIS databases.

    9. Any kind of stop words in the headings or body of the letter can be sent through forms. When sending bulk e-mails, such messages either are not delivered the recipient or end up in a junk folder.
    The list of stop words of mail systems includes almost all phrases and words that encourage your potential customers to take actions.


    1. Searching for new clients.
    2. Quick informing of marketplaces about new commercial offers.
    3. Informing directors.
    4.demand analysis.
    5. Conducting tenders.
    6.Conducting marketing campaigns.
    7.Conducting surveys and studying public opinion.
    8. Searching for customers in other countries.

    Reasons for ordering this service:

    1. 100-percent delivery of your letters and cooperation offers to millions of companies all over the world.
    Every website sends a letter to itself so all filters of mails are bypassed.

    2.Mailing by contact forms is an excellent way in for conducting all sorts of researches of marketing, surveys and studies of social opinion on any kind ofdirection and type of activity.
    When sending mailing by contact forms, you will definitely know that your letter has been delivered to one hundred percent of users of your service and product and if a product or service is "badly promoted", then the potential issue lies in other things, for example in price.
    At the same time, within a week you will see real demand for your services and products, you will not need to spend money on rent and other more expensive and time-consuming marketing activities.

    3.Mailing by feedback forms is the most economical and quickest way to get your service or product to the markets of other countries.

    4. Mailing by feedback forms is an excellent tool for conducting different tenders.

    5.Weekly update of the databases, as more than 150,000 new websites, are registered all over the world every day, and you, get new potential clients.

    6. Full geographical scope for all countries of the globe.

    7. We offer customers that you will not find through other types of advertisement.
    When sending mailing by contact forms, you will be able to reach out that part of your customers, that is impossible to "break through" in automatic mode in any other way.
    For instance, you will be able to send a business offer to those potential clients that were earlier out of reach due to e-mail filters while sending bulk e-mails.
    In the markets, there is a very paradoxical situation: companies in the directories are literally filled with spam with all sorts of business offers while very little e-mails are sent to the remaining ones.

    8. Unique technique of decoding the captcha.
    There are services for unraveling numeric and alphabetic code (captcha/CAPTCHA). It costs 1$ to solve 1000 CAPTCHAs.
    It turns out that, processing one million websites our program decodes a million CAPTCHAs, which costs thousand $ only to decrypt captcha/CAPTCHA, and we provide this free of charge for you!

    9. By ordering mailing by contact forms, you are promoting your product or service not to separate individuals, but to entire organisations, for example domain .com, where more than 150 million cooperational companies from all countries are collected (we have samples of them from all international zones for every country).

    10. Mailing by feedback forms is also a type of text mailing
    Mailbox that is linked to the contact form is the primary e-mail address of businesses through which orders and cooperation offers are sent. This mail is also set up for cell phones as it is necessary to respond to the messages instantly so as not to lose the order or the relevance of the commercial offer.

    11. The base of every country also includes all joint companies from all countries working with or closely related to this country, for instance, diasporas and national communities.
    Sanctions of search engines and mail systems?
    These mailings are an alternative to sending e-newsletters, therefore search sanctions and "BAN" do not apply to them.
    Mail delivers the data of letters to the inbox folder, as it goes through the "warm communication channel" from the new IP address of the internet resource to the corporate electronic address of the same site.
    In other words, these mailings "live in emails" and mail filters do not respond to them, because mails have a great level of trust in communication channels between websites and corporate electronic addresses.

    You can purchase our databases separately from the mailing by sending us a message by contact form.






    The simplest text + headings, the main goal is to interest the customer, and they will read the rest on your internet resource.
    Most likely, all ads on your subject are already on the Internet networks, enter the necessary requests into the search engine and choose the most successful ones.
    The headings are substituted one after another from .txt file.
    Only text messages are sent, links are inserted without problems, they are active. If the potential customer needs pictures or more detailed information, then you should forward the potential customer to visit your website.

    In the letter:
    Text without pictures, since pictures do not pass through the contact form.
    Your contact details:
    Site address:

    Fields to fill in:
    Several headings:
    E-mail for automatic responces:

    website =» xn----7sbb1bbndheurc1a.xn--p1ai
    Price List =» xn----7sbb1bbndheurc1a.xn--p1ai/en/price/
