Integrity Selling: Closing Your Calling - Selling By Serving

Professional Wellness

We are all called to do something special–yet too often we ignore, suppress, or find ways to avoid pursuit of our true calling. Regardless of title, everyone sells. So often, however, we tend to associate the nature of selling with manipulation–of playing on peoples’ wants or fears to get them to do something that we want. In our imperfect world, that may be the case in some occupations and environments, but for those of us fortunate to be following our true calling, “selling” isn’t selling at all–it’s all about serving.Topics Addressed:Finding your Purpose, Discovering your Why.Finding needs and filling them (the heart of true entrepreneurship)How every NO gets you closer to a YESPersonality Profiling (First Rule: “To Thine Own Self Be True”)It’s Win-Win, or No DealDon't sell…teachHow passion fuels perseveranceThis Presentation will Provide:Practical tips and action steps to discern your callingA step-by-step breakdown of the consultative/integrity selling approachGuidelines on how to identify personality types (starting with your own!)How to close the sale gently but firmly.This presentation will examine what these factors mean to you in both your personal and professional life.
