We all have strengths that will help us become great salespeople. The problem is, we don’t always know what these strengths are or how to use them to sell authentically. Eddie Villa is both a life and a sales coach and in this episode, he’ll speak about using our strengths to help us sell authentically.
Strengths of a Salesperson
There are 34 different strengths that fall under 4 themes: Relationship building, strategic thinking, influencing, and executing. Everyone has different motivations and strengths when it comes to selling. Are you someone who wants to deepen relationships? Are you driven by checking off a list? Do you like to learn new skills? Are you motivated by the process? Once you realize what your strengths are, and you lean into your motivators, selling becomes easy!
Balancing your strengths
Company culture may not align with your strengths. In that case, focus on the required activities to get the job done. Once you know the fundamentals, find a way to add your own flair and authenticity into the execution. If your company wants you to send emails, then send them in a way that is a reflection of your strength. For example, you may enjoy making a video more than you do writing. If you’re a relationship builder, find a way to connect with your prospect. Maybe you want to gather information to strategically plan out what is best for a client’s needs. If you like to do research, learn about your prospect’s company or personal interests in order to put a unique package together just for them.
You are the solution
We are all unique and it’s these differences that drive the various outcomes. Businesses and clients are facing a variety of problems and you are the only one who can bring a solution based on your strengths. You are that special. Realize that some of your most celebrated successes came from moments you were just being you and build your sales career on who you are, in your strengths. It’s what your client needs.
