For the past few months, sales leader Patrick Carter and our CEO Lynn Whitbeck have been working through their new 12-part series all about sales power skills, as explained through their “PERFORMANCE” acronym. We’ve learned all about the first four letters – “Problem Solving,” “Engagement,” “Resilience,” and “Flexibility” – and this week, the duo are offering a bonus episode. Flexibility isn’t just a skill for sales success; it’s also instrumental in demonstrating genuine respect for others. Lynn and Patrick cover how this is especially important in light of COVID-19 and our rapidly changing world.
Last time, Patrick and Lynn described the value of flexibility in your career. Getting outside of your comfort zone and expanding your horizons help you grow – both professionally and personally. If you’re not so flexible now, it’s a skill you can learn and practice.
Beyond the aforementioned benefits of flexibility, it also gives you a framework for respect in others. In these tense times, respecting others and truly listening to their experiences and perspectives is crucial. Flexibility helps you understand others and embrace differences. It will help us through the stresses of the Coronavirus pandemic, and it will helps us through the ongoing protests in support of the #BlackLivesMatter movement and ending police brutality.
Before we dive into the podcast, be sure to check out Patrick’s website, Elite Sales Institute. You can also follow Patrick on Twitter with the Elite Sales Institute: Where professional sales careers are created.
