Monday night I had the opportunity to train with Mike Brown, the WEC World Champion at 145lbs and a member of The American Top Team out of Florida. Like the fishmongers of Pikes Place, Mike Brown also has a unique way of interacting with his audience. First he is a very happy-go-lucky guy who chooses his attitude, not the other way around.

In the book “You Gotta Get In The Game,” Billy Cox challenges you to think about playing the game, not watching it. He mentions that if you only watch from the sidelines you’re allowing your peers, your competition and your industry to pass you by. As sales professionals, we are all playing in a new league and the game, as we know it, has changed.

I was recently picked to film a video for a project that Treeline is working on. The video was originally done by one of my colleagues but then we needed to re-record it due to technical reasons and he wasn’t available. Long story short, I had to record myself doing this pitch that was written by him. I spent a few hours in a room all by myself, staring into a camera, saying a pitch over and over again and when I finally felt I was done, I showed it to my CEO. I thought that he’d view the video and ‘ok’ it and I could get back to the phone. Wishful thinking.

Good listening skills. Not enough sales professionals have them according to Author Barry Farber in a recent Entreparticle on the subject. He suggests it’s because we feel more comfortable talking about ourselves and the subjects we know that we sometimes neglect to listen. After all, what could be easier? Another Farber theory is that sales professionals are so excited about their product they can’t wait to tell prospects about it – and end up doing most of the talking.
