    “Sales Communications Skills” 

    Good communication is crucial to sales success.

    Sounds obvious, right? You can’t make a sale unless you’ve demonstrated value to a prospect. You can’t do that unless you’ve understood their problems and devised a strategy to solve them. In turn, you can’t do that until you get your prospect to tell you what’s wrong. And so on, and so forth …

    No train, No gain! 

    If your greatest resource is your people (do you agree with that?), then it only makes sense that your biggest investment should be in your people.

    Develop them, grow them, train them, and coach them!

    ‘Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in Cause and Effect’. 

    mental strength

    ‘Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect.’
    – Ralph Waldo Emerson

    “Mental Strength” is ‘the capability to exert power’ thus ‘the ability to overcome mental resistance and cause things to happen’.

    Mental resistance is any negative thought, feeling or belief that stands between you and your goals.

    Find out how we can help you increase your mental strength!

    Sunday short story … Cultivating the Mental Discipline of not categorising everything into Gain and Loss! 

    Learning to live in such a way that nothing is experienced as either an advantage or a disadvantage, is the source of enormous empowerment and liberation…

    Once upon a time there was a Chinese farmer whose horse ran away. That evening, all of his neighbors came around to commiserate. They said, “We are so sorry to hear your horse has run away. This is most unfortunate.” The farmer said, “Maybe.” The next day the horse came back bringing seven wild horses with it, and in the evening everybody came back and said, “Oh, isn’t that lucky. What a great turn of events. You now have eight horses!” The farmer again said, “Maybe.” The following day his son tried to break one of the horses, and while riding it, he was thrown and broke his leg. The neighbors then said, “Oh dear, that’s too bad,” and the farmer responded, “Maybe.” The next day the conscription officers came around to conscript people into the army, and they rejected his son because he had a broken leg. Again all the neighbors came around and said, “Isn’t that great!” Again, he said, “Maybe.”

    The farmer steadfastly refrained from thinking of things in terms of gain or loss, advantage or disadvantage, because one never knows… In fact we never really know whether an event is fortune or misfortune, we only know our ever-changing reactions to ever-changing events.

    Setting and Achieving Goals 

    “When you set a goal, make sure your goal is SMART, which stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Time-bound. Here’s an example:
    Specific: Instead of saying, “My ultimate goal is to lose weight,” say “My goal is to lose 30 pounds/kilos.”
    Measurable: Set milestones to measure your progress. For example, “My goal is to lose two pounds each week.”
    Attainable: Your goal should be realistic to you. It should be a stretch to achieve it, but you should still feel confident in your ability to achieve it.
    Relevant: This is your “why” of weight loss. Why do you want to lose weight? What motivates you? For example, your answer could be: “Achieving this goal will allow me to feel more confident as a person.”
    Time-bound: Set a specific date you want to achieve your goal by, e.g., “I want to lose 30 pounds/kilos by April 2018.”

    The Art of Discovering the Right Question! 

     “If I had an hour to solve a problem and my life depended on the solution, I would spend the first 55 minutes determining the proper question to ask, for once I know the proper question, I could solve the problem in less than five minutes.”

    The usefulness of the knowledge we acquire and the effectiveness of the actions we take depend on the quality of the questions we ask. Questions open the door to dialogue and discovery. They are an invitation to creativity and breakthrough thinking. Questions can lead to movement and action on key issues; by generating creative insights, they can ignite change.

    A powerful creative  question: • generates curiosity in the listener • stimulates reflective conversation • is thought-provoking • surfaces underlying assumptions • invites creativity and new possibilities • generates energy and forward movement • channels attention and focuses inquiry • stays with participants • touches a deep meaning • evokes more questions.

    A powerful question also has the capacity to “travel well”—to spread beyond the place where it began into larger networks of conversation throughout an organisation or a community.

    Spend 90 mins with us, live online, and we will teach you how to ask powerfull questions!

    Usefull for probing, influencing, closing, teaching, facilitating, coaching and interviwing.

    Do you know how to advance your purpose? 

    “Scottish philosopher Thomas Carlyle asserted, “A person with a clear purpose will make progress on even the roughest road. A person with no purpose will make no progress on even the smoothest road.” What a great image. Purpose gives you drive. ”
