You became a nurse because you enjoy helping people. You became a legal nurse consultant because you enjoy solving puzzles and working with attorneys.
Then you pick up the phone to hear one of your clients screaming about an invoice – the number of hours you billed versus his expectations.
How do you handle him?
You think, “I don’t deserve to be bullied. I need to be treated with respect. What am I going to do about this toxic client?”
You realize you stand to lose a lot of money if you give into this attorney. Your desire to please the attorney has flown out the window and you just want him to stop yelling at you.
If you give in every time an attorney questions you, you’ll quickly lose control of the conversation.
I used to feel the same way until I learned how to identify the toxic clients in my legal nurse consulting business. I developed a system for responding to them that I will share in my masterclass, How to Deal with Toxic Clients.
When I mastered the system that I will share with you, my frustration level decreased, and my sense of control increased.
