Mental toughness in sales - Is this your superpower?
How to succeed in a world where rejection and failure can be the norm.
Selling is all about performance. Salespeople face pressures and challenges everyday so they need resilience to deal with rejection and failure, and positivity to see and seize opportunity where others see threat.
Mental toughness describes the invisible mental approach every person adopts in everything they do. It is a major factor in performance, wellbeing and aspiration which are essential qualities for salespeople giving them the psychological edge to cope with the ups and downs that are part of their job.
Developing resilience and positivity, which together make up our mental toughness, can give a sense of self worth, purpose and determination and confidence to face what arises and, importantly, to be optimistic about what lies ahead.
- What mental toughness really is, and why it is relevant for performance and wellbeing.
- Why developing mental toughness is critical to sales performance, sales agility and wellbeing, especially at stressful and challenging times in the sales cycle.
- Why it is so important to understand our mental toughness profile, how to go about optimising this key personality trait and why this is your superpower.
