SALES LEADERS, GAME ON!
Life lessons from Pac-Man: four steps to leveling up your team’s sales performance.
Are you on the hunt for new strategies that will empower your sales pros to take their success to the next level? Then it’s time to take a page from a somewhat unexpected source: gaming. The lessons learned by trying to beat a video game can prove to be a powerful source of inspiration for sales leaders, as Jason explains in a recent article for Big Builder. Read an excerpt below:
“There’s a level of frustration my kids always reach when they keep getting taken out at the same stage in their quest. They either give up or they keep going until they have a breakthrough. It’s terrific practice picking themselves up and getting right back at it when they fail.
“A career as a sales pro can be just as stimulating as my kids’ digital conquests. Say someone on your team is stuck or struggling… Lead them to see that it’s beneficial to push into something that’s hard—otherwise, they won’t have the courage to break through and make it to the next level.”
