Summer has wound down and the kids are back in school and
focused on new classes that that they are taking and how these classes fit into their goals and objectives so that they can move on to the next level or grade. Most of these goals or stages are determined by parents, administrators or other school professionals so the kids have much of their schooling journey laid out them even though they have choices within the overall plan.
As we also head "back to school" this fall, have you considered what "classes" you need to take or which skills you need to retool?
What new technology, product or software, sales or business development or CE training sessions are you considering taking this fall? It is always a good time to update your skill set and knowledge base to keep up with the market place and your customers knowledge levels.
This is also a good time to refine your goals for the balance of the calendar year and look towards 2015 in regard to where you want to be with your sales revenue and sales career.
Are any of us really done learning? Keep your outlook fresh and stay ahead of the competition in your field by learning all you can to improve your selling game!
40. Watch that body language!
As we've all read, some surveys actually conclude that body language is the most important and determinative form of communication. Don't spend entire days in front of the mirror, but do be aware of that! Make sure that when you enter a room, you project a positive and confident air with each step and action. Don't slouch your shoulders or fidget around in a distracting way. To find a role model, watch a movie with a classic movie star such as Cary Grant, Gregory Peck, Grace Kelly or Loretta Young. We can all learn from them.
So what have we learned in Chapter Three?
We've learned some practical but crucial fundamental rules concerning our behavior and the behavior of those around us. No matter where you are in your career, these rules can help you avoid pitfalls and can provide you with the meaningful edge you need to stay one step ahead of the competition! Now it's on to Chapter Four where we will address focus points that relate to sales.
