Scott Ingram: You’re listening to the Daily Sales Tips podcast and I’m your host, Scott Ingram. I had a pretty interesting conversation with one of the most senior sales leaders of a multi-billion dollar enterprise sales organization earlier this week, and we were talking about the Sales Success Summit and those who were involved in it. His perspective was that he believed there was a very high correlation between top performers and those who were investing in personal development. He suggested that there was nothing but upside for the individual, and for the organization that adopted that kind of mindset. I suppose I’m preaching to the choir here a little bit, since you probably wouldn’t be listening to this right now, or sharing these tips with your team if you didn’t share this belief and that kind of growth mindset, but he equated it to investing in an MBA. Making that kind of commitment to advance and grow can only serve you in your career.
Similarly, the conversation that I had over drinks in New York with a few fans of the show in our little “flash meetup,” if you’re on the listener list and get my emails you might have seen that. If you’re not you should be and you can join anytime for free a DailySales.Tips. Anyway, I was blown away by just how many books were mentioned over the course of that conversation. Shoutout to Eddie, Sebastian, and Scott. The level of intelligence and associated performance was really high and clearly, that was driven by the investments they’ve been making in their own personal development.
This is barely a tip. It’s really more of an observation, but I think the correlation and causation here is clear. Keep investing in yourself. Keep learning and keep improving. Then one of the best ways you can further develop your thinking and growth is to teach it to someone else or mentor someone else. Remember that this show is basically an open forum. You’re always welcome to share your own tip, and I seriously hope you’ll consider it. Potentially as a further investment in your own personal development.
