What Do Sales and Leadership Have in Common?
But for the rare exception, most people don’t want to be in sales. Why? Rejection is tough and maybe they remember a bad sales experience in their past. If you have a negative opinion of sales, it’s time to get over it. Nothing happens in business until a sale is made. Sales are the lifeblood of business. If you are in leadership, selling is your lifeblood too! We are ALL selling. From the time we were infants we were ‘selling’ our parents on feeding us, changing diapers and buying our favorite toy. If you’re married, you ‘sold’ your spouse on marrying you. When you are a leader, you must sell the team on your vision, ideas and goals or you’re dead in the water. If you’ve never considered it before, listen to Steve’s eye-opening and interesting comparison of sales and leadership and find out why, when you are a leader, you should LOVE sales.
