Getting Out of Your Own Way

Ever notice that some people seem to effortlessly get things done while others struggle? Are those that do this smarter, better at their jobs, or more motivated? In some cases, one or more of these is a factor, however, the most important element is self-command. Those with better self-command achieve more with less effort, staying out of their own way in the process.

What is self-command and how do you achieve it? Just like a vocal performer…

Email is Not a Form of Communication – Scott’s Sales Yoga Thought for the Day

Effective communication is never one sided, but that’s exactly what you get with email. One person writes and transmits; the receivers read and reply. These monologues are never, ever effective dialogues as there is a time delay that allows too much room for misinterpretation, misunderstanding, and miscommunication. Email strips away not only the tone, and too often the context, from the message, but it also removes the very essence of efficient and effective human conversation.

Is…

What Donald Sterling Can Teach Us About Selling

While bigots are a thorn in the side of society, they can teach us valuable lessons.

Take Donald Sterling, owner of the Los Angeles Clippers basketball team in the United States, as an example. After his racist comments were revealed on tape he thought it prudent to be interviewed by CNN’s…

It’s a Small, Big World After All

While going global would be a prudent measure for many reading this, learning from global patterns is the next best thing. Trends don’t last and, as a result, are not reliable indicators of actual market conditions and emerging opportunities. Patterns, on the other hand, are virtually infallible barometers as they demonstrate the momentum of where things will continue to…

Compulsive Buying

Why is it that buyers continue to purchase services and products inferior to those delivered by your company? Momentum is the cause and the cure.

If what you offer is truly better, the buyer has to stop focusing all of his energy on the current provider and shift some of that your way. The temporary deflection of momentum accounts for only 10% of his energy and attention; the other 90% is what keeps him in the current purchasing pattern. This is why buying is compulsive—people stay…

First Time Thinking – Scott’s Sales Yoga Thought for the Day

Each of us is not responsible for our first thought, but we are responsible for our next action. This simple mantra not only can create powerful shifts in thinking, it can also allow us to see things that were previously unseen.

The video in this post of two women experiencing their first flight is a powerful example of how anyone, anywhere, can see the wonder in life. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, like seeing or experience something for the very…

Gone, But Not Forgotten?

Many buyers are forgetting to buy from salespeople they actually like. Is it message? Quality of service? Cheaper price? No, no, and no.

It’s even simpler than all of that…it’s presence. Even many of the very best salespeople are losing deals because they aren’t around when buyers are ready to buy. What’s most unfortunate about this is that showing up is one of the few things salespeople can control.

Out of site, out mind, means out of…

Sales Anonymous

Since buyers like to buy and don’t like to be on the receiving end of a sales pitch, this may indicate the need for a 12-step program, but not for customers. Rather, it would be for all salespeople who, intentionally or not, behave in ways that prompt buyers to recoil as though they were dealing with an addict on a binge.

If there were such a program, let’s call it Sales Anonymous, I suspect the 12 steps would read something like…

1. We admitted we were powerless over…

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…

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…

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

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.

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…

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…

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,…
