Recently, I went out with a few people for a meal. It turned out that one of them was in sales. He had no idea that I am a motivational speaker and during the meal we talked about various things but towards the end of the meal this chap (let’s call him Pete) mentioned that he was a bit bored of his job because he has to do the same things over and over.
Rejection in sales isn’t new. The search for the miracle “get past the gatekeepers, talk to decision makers rather than chat to their answer phone, and not be fobbed off in the first minute of the conversation” wonder drug is still being hunted by millions of recruiters and their managers.
Working as a recruiter requires high self confidence, so how can you build yours?
I meant to write this blog last month… but you know how it is.
You might think that I’m joking, but sadly I’m not! Why is it that we are all so good at putting off what we need to do, whether it’s at work or in our private lives? The simple answer is that it’s human nature — we don’t like having to do tasks that are not enjoyable or aren’t a priority — but I believe it goes deeper than that.
