It’s key not to lose your mojo so if you feel worse after listening to the news – then don’t listen or touch that dial!! The same goes for social media, limit it if you feel yourself getting sucked in. Your friends and co-workers will no doubt keep you informed and you’re better off happy than worried, right?
1. Connect with your customers: I’m sure many of you already have reached out to your existing customers via text, email or phone, or a handwritten card to express support or a simple “thinking of you, is there anything I can do to help?”. Showing that you care beyond transactions will make a big difference once this is all over. Continue your call cycle even if you can’t sell, ask them how they’re doing or simply just connect. They may be going stir crazy too after all.
2. Take free assessments:
There are many “lite” assessments, like:
- GeniusU that also has a network of 1M entrepreneurs that you could connect with and now’s a great time for that, isn’t it?
- Then there are 5 Love Languages which goes beyond intimate relationships. When you know your needs, and learn to recognize that in others, you’ll be even more effective with your existing customers and prospects.
- 16 personalities add insights to your personal brand, independent of whether you’re selling or not.
3. Take paid assessments for more in-depth knowledge:
- My favorite is, of course, CliftonStrengths® that measures how you do/approach anything, it’s all about your hardwiring, the part of you that doesn’t change. Diving into your strengths is not only empowering and fun, it provides you with many insights into how you are when you’re at your best.
- The BP10™ assessment measures how you’re successful in business) adds a similar perspective from a business point of view. Who we are in business can be different than at home after all as we step into roles that either work or not.
- The paid GeniusU Wealth Dynamics assessment adds another angle to how you’re successful in business and while it’s directed to entrepreneurs I feel that applies to what salespeople are all about
