We've moved from connected to hyper-connected.  With the promise of connectedness comes productivity.  Right?


Not always.  "We've bought into the assumption that there exists a linear relationship between success and connectivity, but often the exact opposite is the case."


The secret?  Some of the most successful and effective people use this "one non-digital solution to help them navigate" our over-connected world.  And it's not what you might think!

To Succeed in Sales, Suspend Your Self-Interest

To Succeed in Sales, Suspend Your Self-Interest | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

Finally this article says what everyone should know about sale, but it's also valid both in the social media world and, of course, in the real life. Be a person who gives is always the best path to receive more in return, even if you do not expect that and it's not your goal. [note Martin Gysler]

 

 

Bob Burg, co-author of The Go-Giver, says high-pressure sales are the wrong way to go.

 

To many people, sales is a shady profession, predicated on shark-like closing techniques, manipulation, and shallow, transactional relationships. Bob Burg says that’s exactly the wrong approach. “Top salespeople, the best of the best, understand that when it comes to selling, it isn’t about them or their product or service. It’s about the other person and how they benefit from it,” he says. Burg, co-author (with John David Mann) of the bestselling The Go-Giver: A Little Story about a Powerful Business Idea and their follow-up Go-Givers Sell More, admits his emphasis on the other person “sounds Pollyanna-ish.” But he’s convinced that a low-pressure – even no-pressure – approach will ultimately result in far more sales (not to mention greater career satisfaction for its practitioners).

When The Lesson About Setting Boundaries Is Learned The Hard Way

When The Lesson About Setting Boundaries Is Learned The Hard Way | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

Find the right people, right from the start

Catherine Hoke (CEO of DEFY VENTURE'S) says She was desperate to “fill a seat” instead of postponing the search and spending time to find the right person for the job, she admits.

“We ended up compromising, hiring people that didn’t have the attributes I was looking for,” Hoke says. “[It] becomes more costly in the long run.” If a candidate doesn’t have the skills but does have the traits for the job, they can grow into the position, she says. (For example, a salesperson better be a closer, and an assistant needs to be detail oriented.) Having to fire someone sets the organization back and is unpleasant, Hoke says. “[The] pain could be avoided on the front end.”
