I’m curious to see what other people think. I have found in my career that talking to a client is very subjective. One co-worker may comment that they liked how the conversation was structured and another may dislike it. I think every person is different and it’s about finding clients that like your style, Thoughts?

What is the best attitude to take towards business development efforts? I’m relatively junior at my firm but am getting pulled into more BD work. They’ve asked me to help bring in money/new work. This is my least favorite type of work because there is so little control over it. With being staffed on an engagement I have control over how things go and to some extent over client satisfaction. With bringing in new engagements, it feels so uncertain and I dislike the prospect of revenue targets.
