Selling

Salespeople sell products and services. That is pretty easy to understand.

Other types of selling is a bit different but just as important.

Managers have to sell their ideas to their employees. Employees have to sell their ideas to their bosses. CEO’s have to sell their big ideas to their boards. Boards have to sell their ideas to investors and banks.

We are selling ourselves, our ideas and our beliefs every day. Those people who say they can’t sell don’t realize they already are doing so.

Have a great day!

Remarkable

Many people think they do something (or things) that are remarkable. They will even go so far as to tell people via social media how special they are.

Shouldn’t it be other people who decide if what you do is remarkable or not?

Do something so good, or so special, so that others want to talk about it instead of doing things that only you talk about.

Have a great day!

Writing

When giving instructions, it’s so much more effective to put them in writing, even if you want to present them verbally.

If you can write up the instructions succinctly, even if something is missed or there is confusion in the verbal instructions, it’s a lot easier to go back and review the written directions.

In the short term taking the time to write the directions clearly will take more time BUT will end up saving a lot of time and aggravation in the long run.

Have a great day!
