An aggressive mentality tends to be something we look for when identifying sales potential. It is a characteristic that we reinforce when recognizing top performers and one we tend to highlight during an interview process. What about patience though? Where does patience fit in? Can you be patient and aggressive? Is there a difference between patience when it comes to your career vs how you manage sales cycles?
This week on the Catalyst Sale podcast we discuss patience, revealing urgency, and the importance of planning. We also discuss how a lack of patience may be driven by ego, and the risk of letting your ego get in the way.
Planning is critical in sales. When it comes to managing sales cycles, a project plan can help you help your customers navigate the decision process. Develop a plan, and work the plan. When it comes to your career, an honest assessment of where you and where you want to go is important to your long term success, and determining if you are on the right track.
