Sales training. Sales training is not product training. Sales training is learning how to relate to prospects in a way favorable such that, both, the agent and the prospect have meaningful, two-way dialogue during the sales interview.
Personal development. This area involves keeping a positive attitude when you do not feel like working. Personal development reduces anxiety and frustration so you will not beat yourself up.
Core beliefs. This is the set of values that defines you. No one can take these from you. Your core beliefs can accelerate your sales performance. Or, your core beliefs can dampen your sales performance.
If your core beliefs are not aligned with good sales performance and revenue expectations, you can develop new components to establish a new belief system... but it is not easy. You have had your current core beliefs for the last 25, 35, 45, or 55 years.
But here's one thing I learned and use to help salespersons. Getting all three-sales training, personal development and core beliefs-to fire in harmony starts with sales training.
If you do not know how to sell, while trying to improve personal development skills and working from your current belief system, functioning as a salesperson becomes extremely frustrating.
Why? Because personal development training is not sales training, and this results in salespersons working too hard trying to wing it with prospects. Salespersons will often spend years and thousands of dollars on personal development training and never learn how to sell.
Sales training helps clear the fog about what you are selling. Here's how:
Learning how to sell and generate more income, the mind becomes more receptive to personal development training.
Next, personal development training exposes negative core beliefs that need to change.
How often have you wished you had that specific brochure, infographic or customer video testimonial, when talking with a prospect, but you did not have access to it real time?

Sales, the final frontier.
Sorry, the phrase, "the final frontier", are the words from the hit, sci-fi show "Star Trek".
Well, you now have a business or maybe you have been practicing your trade for a few years.
The trend over the last 5-10 years has been to move away from connecting with people in face-to-face or telephone conversation in favor of "engaging" them over the Internet.
If you really want to be successful in selling, you can continue using digital platforms but you must realize that sales is a people business. It always has been, and it always will be.
Don't be afraid. You can do it. It's fun.
