Episode Info

Episode Info: In most professional sports, there are coaches and cheerleaders. Coaches teach you how to improve your skills and encourage you down the path of success. Cheerleaders, on the other hand, cheer and root for you on the sidelines and congratulate you on your wins. So, what can we, as sales professionals, learn from these professions? If you were the coach and the playing field is the world of sales, would you put yourself in the field - or on the bench? In today’s lunchbreak training, I explain how to be your own sales coach and cheerleader. I explain the roles of a sales coach and cheerleader, what sales coaches are supposed to do, and why no outside sales coach can help you until you develop your own inner coach. I explain the two different types of sales coaches and the various managing styles that sales managers use to motivate their teams to execute sales plans. I also share strategies you can use to help you develop your inner coach and how these techniques will impact your success.   “The more you focus on being your own coach with an exciting plan, the more your daily actions will be inspired by a larger plan.” - Steve Bookbinder   This week on Food For Thought Lunchbreak: The importance of being your own sales coach and cheerleader The role of your sales manager How habits and routines can impact your personal development The connection between coaching and cheerleading The two types of sales coaches Understanding what motivates you and using it to your advantage Honestly assessing your strengths and weaknesses and adapting your plan to leverage your strengths Tracking the small and big wins and celebrating your successes   4 Steps to Develop Your Inner Coach: Commit to an ongoing, weekly schedule of management meetings.
