4 Ways To Develop Your Personal Brand & Connect With Your Target Audience
Does your brand live up to expectations?
"When we talk about branding in a business sense, the first thing people think of are logos and color palettes. While these are important elements to a company's brand - think Coca Cola or McDonald's - branding is more about how you set up your company to stand out from the crowd. Branding incorporates your company's message and mission, and when all these things line up correctly, you become memorable to your audience and solidify the foundation for a strong relationship..."

Figuring Things Out!
Sadly, the trend in developing sales people skills is toward a higher level of prescription
"We provide email sequences, we script conversations and talking points. We try to formularize all the activities our sales people do with customers.

But the world is complex, what our customers face is complex, what our people face is complex. Things change constantly, each customer situation is unique-to them, at a moment in time.

We can't possibly think of everything out people will face, scripting how they handle these situations. Yet, we continue to spoon feed them everything we think they need.

And the results they produce are declining..."

Sales Leaders: What Happens When We All Get To Travel Again?
One day, later this year, it's going to happen: herd immunity, un-quarantining, social proximity, and the return of safer long-distance travel.
"If you're like me, your first excursions off the couch will be to spend time with family and then to perhaps take a vacation - mine will be in Massachusetts, New York, Colorado, and Ontario, and then, aspirationally, Hawaii. However, business travel won't be far behind.

It's not hard to predict that for B2B sales professionals, the long-awaited opportunity for face time with buyers and customers will likely explode with activity, after so much pent-up demand, not to mention the resurgence of team off-sites, user conferences, marketing events, and annual kickoff meetings..."

Introvert, Extravert, Or Ambivert?
Do you consider yourself an introvert or extravert? Maybe neither? Perhaps a bit of both?
"Swiss psychiatrist Carl G. Jung first came up with the terms in the early 1900s and believed some of us are energized by the external world and some of us are energized by the internal world. What if we're a blend?

Have you heard the term Ambivert? It's defined as 'a person whose personality has a balance of extravert and introvert features'. Adam Grant, an organizational psychologist and professor at Wharton conducted a study and found that two-thirds of us don't strongly identify as introverts or extraverts. Rather, our style varies based on the situation..."
