If you are a sales person, you can choose to be the model of a great sales person.
Holly interviews her co-author and business partner, Eric Symanski. Eric shares is definition of mindfulness as “Mindfulness is sanity.” It takes all of what is going on in life and provides clarity and intention, removing the chaos.
Questions they explore:
- How did you meet?
- What is the cost of success in sales if you are not being mindful?
In their conversation, Eric admits that for most of his high demand sales career, mindfulness wasn’t even on his radar and he was sacrificing his own mental health and sanity, as well as his family. He turned to Holly as a coach and she asked: Does it have to be that way? Does it have to be so stressful?
He started reading Holly’s book, Everyday Mindfulness and using the tips each day to find the path out of the chaos. He and Holly entered a coaching relationship, and he realized that he could drive success without chaos.
He realized that there are great benefits to applying mindfulness to the sales profession and wanted to share this with people living in the high stress world of sales. Holly and Eric have woven the Seven Practices of Sales and the Seven Practices of Mindfulness into their book, Sell More Stress Less: 52 Tips to Create Mindful Sales. They have been doing co-facilitation workshops with these practices all over the world.
The book has three sections. The first addresses the business case for mindfulness, then presents the seven steps for successful sales. The final section presents readers with weekly tips to connect mindfulness practices to daily sales business.
Along with the book, Holly and Eric offer deeper resources through the Mindful Leadership Council hosted by the C-Suite Network. The Council assists leaders in bringing the mindfulness way of life to their organizations.
They also invite you to meet face to face in May at their Mindful Leader Conference. The first day is full of mindful leadership teaching and the second will be a day for couples to learn how to live in the essence of intention.
Eric’s intention is prosperity for 2020. Living a life of intention and expanding into prosperity for himself and all those that he and Holly have the opportunity to work with.
Eric leaves listeners with the thought that if you could just take a step back and realize that it’s ok to allow yourself not to live with stress and chaos. Step into your best life using mindful practices offered through the resources that Eric and Holly have created.
