Your Personal Sales Style

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now There is no sales “style” that is winging it. It isn’t a “style” to go into a sales meeting unprepared or unable to create value for your client or dream client. That “style’ is called lazy, and it has never been effective nor has it ever been fashionable.You aren’t making a decision around “style” decision when you decide to fish around for something personal on which to build rapport as a way to open a sales call. That is called “wasting your client’s time.” There is room to know your client on a personal level, but this approach early in a relationship subtracts from the value you need to create.You do not have a “style” that is skipping stages in your sales process. There are verifiable outcomes that need to be gained for you and your client in order to be productive in exploring working together on an opportunity. Doing partial work isn’t a “style” decision; it’s a recipe for losing an opportunity and later, should the Gods of sales have mercy on you, failing your client should you somehow win the business.Avoiding difficult conversations isn’t a “style” either. It’s fear. Lacking the chops necessary to have difficult conversation is a weakness. Your clients and dream clients need help dealing with difficult issues, and they trust people whose “style” is to help them deal with complex issues.Whenever you lean on your “style” as an excuse for not doing something the way it should really be done, you are avoiding something that you fear doing or something you are just too lazy to do. These aren’t style decisions; they’re rationalizations, they’re your way of dealing with your unwillingness to improve.You are unique. You are allowed to have a personality, and you must be human if you really want to connect with your clients. Bad choices don’t make a style.last_img read more

“Freedom from Cancer” project helps 154 patients

first_imgA “Freedom from Cancer” project, launched by a cancer speciality hospital here, has helped out adults suffering from blood cancer, enabling them to lead a normal life, with the treatment facilitated by philanthropists, charitable trusts and individual donors. As many as 154 cancer patients have benefited from free chemotherapy and investigation and nursing facilities.Bhagwan Mahaveer Cancer Hospital took up the project in August 2015 for making an effective intervention in the treatment of cancer patients who were unable to bear the expenses. Patients suffering from Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) blood cancer, which affects bone marrow and blood as a result of chromosomal mutation and abnormality, were selected as the beneficiaries.Hospital’s Director (Clinical Services) S.G. Kabra told The Hindu here on Friday that a total of 212 CML patients were registered for treatment till June 30, and 154 of them, including 82 males and 72 females, were receiving free medicines and being monitored regularly. Fifty-eight of the registered patients were disconnected from the socially supported project for default and other reasons.Dr. Kabra said all the beneficiaries were cancer-free and were leading a normal productive life. The emphasis was on “target therapy” through Imatinib drug, which had turned out to be a very effective medicine internationally, he said and added that the drug had led to complete and long-lasting remission of CML in over 85% of the patients.CML was the first cancer that was linked to chromosomal mutation, described in the medical circles as the Philadelphia chromosome. “If the cancer promoting enzyme could be inhibited, the cancer growth stops. The research led to development of Imatinib in 1990 and its human trial was conducted in 1998, after which the FDA approved it in 2001,” said Dr. Kabra.The medicine acts only on cancer cells, keeping other dividing cells of the body unaffected and leaving virtually no side effects. Taming of one’s deadly CML blood cancer illustrated the struggle and sustained fight against cancer, affirmed Dr. Kabra, who is also a medical science researcher and activist.The project has helped people like Parmeshwari Devi, 50, for whom the costly treatment was unaffordable, and Meera Devi, 48, wife of a vegetable vendor, who has been getting free Imatinib medication. Similarly, Kapil Kumar Vyas, 45, working at a marble shop in Makrana, is free of cancer as a result of the project’s intervention.The “Donate a Life” fund being operated by the hospital for children as a parallel measure has helped treat 85 kids. The fund’s beneficiaries are children below 14 years of age suffering from any of the three types of curable blood cancers – acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, acute promylocytic leukaemia and Hodgkin’s lymphoma.last_img read more
