Knowing Does Not Mean Doing – Scott’s Sales Yoga Thought for the Day

Next time someone someone tells you he already knows all about what you’re saying, say the following:That’s great! How much are you doing that?Chances are there is a gap between what someone says they know and what they’re doing with that knowledge.The divide between knowing and doing is plaguing companies across the globe. The dangerous assumption that just because someone knows something automatically means she’s doing it keeps her from looking closely at her actual behavior. Managers who…See More

Take No Prisoners is a free weekly memo from Scott Wintrip that explores how Radical Accountability prospers companies and changes lives.

Don’t Be a Sales Schmuck

Slick lines, canned responses, and a voice that sounds just like the typical salesperson—a common combination for too many salespeople today. Even those who avoid this Wolf of Wall Street persona still tend to talk too much, listen too little, and dominate versus facilitate conversations with buyers. Is it any wonder that almost everyone, including salespeople themselves, dislike being on the receiving end of a sales pitch?The definition of a schmuck is:An obnoxious or contemptible person.Even…See More

Count the Change to Make the Change Count

If you want something different, you must do something different. Even if you want things to stay the same, change is still required. Everything evolves, including the economic climate, needs of colleagues and constituents, the competitive landscape, and the momentum caused by constantly shifting trends. The status quo, if that is truly a desirable state, requires us to make…See More

"Problemtunity addressed Matt. You are correct. We are normally good about removing our promo language when we post things. And today, we forgot to do so. That language was removed."

"Scott...two strikes for blatant advertorial and use of the word "problemtunities.' My problemtunity is the problem with your sales spamming this community - please remember, this doesn't sell anything other than animosity."

Turning Predicaments into Problemtunities – Scott’s Sales Yoga Thought for the Day

“If I could just go a day without having to solve problems, that would be a good day,” a CEO I advise recently shared.Having heard him say this before, I responded, “The problems aren’t the issue. How you’re viewing them is the real problem.”This led to a conversation on Making Shift Happen.We all have a choice of how we view the world around us. Unfortunately, repetitively thinking the same thoughts creates a belief system that stays with us until we change it.While it’s hard to think your way…See More

Brutally Honest or Honestly Brutal?

Next time anyone claims they are being brutally honest, ask yourself, is brutality of any kind really necessary?These occurrences often start with an exchange of emails or texts. One person thrusts with nasty words, then the other one parries with sarcasm. Before long, it’s common that the following words appear:“I’m not going to…See More

Say What You Mean, Just Don’t Say It Mean – Scott’s Sales Yoga Thought for the Day

Posted on April 10, 2014 at 9:34am 0 Comments

Tough love and brutal honesty are, quite honestly, terrible ideas. Love is never, ever tough and telling someone the truth doesn’t have to be harsh.

We can tell anyone what needs to be said with clarity, composure, and compassion. So, today and each day hereafter, I encourage you to be direct AND kind. You can say almost anything to anyone if you say what you mean with saying it mean.
