Overcoming Procrastination for Sales Professionals
Date: November 2011
Duration: 0 hours 30 minutes
Selling is one of the most difficult professions. Who wants to be in a line of work where the typical response is "no?" Who wants to encounter rejection day in and day out? Effective salespeople face this scenario all the time. Hence, it's understandable when, on occasion, procrastination arises. Yet, with everyday techniques that anyone can master, no sales professional needs to be shackled by procrastination.
In this session, professional speaker and author Jeff Davidson offers a variety of hands-on techniques that you can put into practice immediately to blast through road blocks, leap over barriers, and maintain productivity. Procrastination is part of the human condition, but you can keep it at bay, endlessly, so that you can be more productive at selling your product or service. Jeff discusses such notions as reflecting on past success, looking for small wins, visualization, feeling the fear, replacing limiting language, practicing creative procrastination, owning the goals before you, and not waiting for the perfect time. You can draw upon these ideas right now, tomorrow, the next day, and the next. This thirty-minute session is a great pick-me-up!
