RESILIENCE INCREASES YOUR SALES SUCCESS
RESILIENT SALES TEAMS REFUSE TO BE PARALYZED BY SETBACKS OR FAILURE.
It’s true. Resilient sales teams and top performers THRIVE on setbacks. They expect it and then use the information to iterate, innovate, and inspire. It all comes down to thinking and behaving strategically and proactively.
We often think of resilience as something you realize after a challenge or difficult event, but research has proven that resilience is a set of habits, behaviors, and skills that can be practiced and honed to minimize burnout, improve motivation and engagement, and overcome obstacles and setbacks.
Sales leaders can learn to respond positively to setbacks, stay on track, and increase their sales results.

These leaders have also been proven to be more productive, engaged, and higher performing as a result.
Sales success is directly related to your speed of bounce back. The more you flex your resilience muscle, the stronger your ability becomes to learn from your experiences to move forward wiser and better.
THE NUTS & BOLTS OF BUILDING RESILIENCE IN SALES
HARNESS THE POWER OF EQ
Emotional Intelligence (EQ) accounts for 58% of performance in all types of jobs, and the link between EQ and earnings is so direct that every point increase in EQ adds $1,300 to an annual salary. EQ is the single biggest predictor of performance in the workplace and the strongest driver of personal success. Learn to accelerate EQ in order to get the most from yourself and the people around you.
MANAGE YOUR STRESS TRIGGERS
There is no shortage of stress. In a constantly changing and volatile business climate, the competitive advantage belongs to those who can manage stress proactively, identify triggers, and respond intentionally. When you identify how you respond to stress, you can begin to proactively manage it. This starts with understanding your own triggers, habits, and personal barriers.
DEVELOP HIGH-QUALITY CONNECTIONS
The environment in which you surround yourself is equally as important. Build collaboration and community with your network, set specific goals, and create buy-in and engagement. Learn to overcome barriers to common communication pitfalls, maximize your strengths, and tap into the strengths and motivators of others.
BECOME A RESILIENT SALES LEADER
Great sales leaders fail fast, learn from their mistakes, and adapt quickly. A resilient sales leader is someone at any level of the organization that practices a “growth mindset”, builds trust and relationships, and champions change and innovation. Instead of viewing a setback as a stopping point, they not only get back up and try again, they apply what they’ve learned to fuel their sales growth for a future opportunity.
