Are you a sales professional or in a related field? Do you ever struggle with Anxiety, Depression, Burnout? Are you looking to find ways to stay mentally strong while executing on the fundamentals that make us successful sellers? Well, this is your place. We are here to bring guidance, best practices, and community around the much needed topic of mental health in sales. Join us! And if we can help you with anything, let us know.
Do you hold yourself to unfair standards and beat yourself up when you don’t reach them?
Do you base your self with on your results?
Sales is a results oriented game
Which can make it hard to know what “fair” standards really are
And create inner turmoil when factors beyond your control prevent you from achieving your goals
In this episode of PsychAndSales, David Weiss and Ehrin Weiss talk to Jeff Bajorek about finding the balance between high standards and what’s fair as a sales professional
The importance of being kind to yourself
Learning to focus on controlling only what you can control
And not judging yourself on what you can’t
Our Goals, shouldn't just be about our number and our metrics
As Marcus Chan says, "You need to manage the territory between your ears, it all starts and stops between your ears"
The best goals are nothing if you can't execute them
And, when we struggle with burnout, depression, and when the thoughts and feelings that swirl around our get in the way of this execution, we will never perform to the levels we desire
This year as you are doing your goal setting
Are you adding into your goals, and making a plan around your #mentalhealth?
In this episode of PsychAndSales, David & Ehrin dive into these topics with Marcus Chan
As we move into 2021, keep an eye on both sides of the success equation.
Side 1 - Skills & Fundamentals
Side 2 - "The Territory Between Your Ears"
You need both!
Are you afraid of committing career suicide?
Does taking about mental health seem too taboo?
When you’re judged on your “work ethic”
As we often are in sales
These conversations can feel scary and dangerous to have
But what happens if you don’t have them?
The chronic stress of being always on
And the feeling that you are crazy and alone in your struggles
Can have an impact on your body and mind
That can lead to a downward spiral
In this episode of PsychAndSales, Dr. Ehrin Weiss and I talk to Belal Batrawy about
Dealing with bad managers
Finding safe spaces to get support
And making sure you have a life beyond your desk
If you want straight talk with no fluff, you won’t want to miss this interview!
“Anxiety in sales is not optional” -Jeff Riseley
...but we all like to pretend it’s not important.
Sales is a largely mental game
But we’re taught to focus on honing our craft
The mental piece is largely ignored
This is one of the reasons we started PsychAndSales
And why Jeff started the Sales Health Alliance
In this interview, we talk to Jeff about the mental game, dealing with micromanagement, and continuing to grow during the COVID pandemic.
I seem to have a lot of "I thought I knew a lot until..." stories.
At least I'm willing to admit when I have more to learn!
For today's "I thought I knew a lot" story...
So, I thought I knew a lot about negotiation when I started working at ADP
Then they trained me in Ron Hubsher's approach
Now, I say
"Everything I know about negotiation, I learned from Ron Hubsher"
Ehrin Weiss and I had the pleasure of interviewing Ron for this episode of PsychAndSales
Ron talks about his tenants of negotiating
And layers in an important aspect for our audience of knowing the mental state of our buyers before entering a negotiation
How often are we doing that?
Ron's advice in this episode is straight fire!
Excited for you all to listen!
Are you battling inner demons? Struggling with things like addiction, anger, depression? Looking for ways to escape those vicious patterns through faith, communication, love and community? You can't miss this episode with the leader of The Sales Rebellion, Dale Dupree. Heavy Metal rocker turned sales saint.
In this episode you will hear from James "Say What Sales" Buckley about burnout. Burnout is a systemic issue in sales. We are always on, always pushed to do more, and have an internal thought that says "If I just work harder, if I just hustle more, I will be more successful". This thought is a great driving force...until it isn't. This episode will help you see when burnout may be approaching for you, what to do about it, and how to strike a potential balance in your life to stay productive without going too far.
Thanks for listening, and if we can ever do anything for you, let us know.
