Today’s Lesson

A Breakaway Sales Performer prepares the sales call with foresight, makes the sales call with insight, and critiques the sales call with hindsight.  That is how you learn to learn – insight, foresight, and hindsight.

I try to envision every sales call in my head before I make the call.  Almost like watching a movie of the call as to how the discussion is going to happen.  Believe it or not, this pre-rehearsal allows me to shake out the bugs of the call and re-write the script.  That provides the perfect script which I can now carry out.  That’s called foresight.

Then when I’m in the call I rely on the structured sales cycle to guide and manage the steps.  Since I’ve been here before, I now know what to do in this situation.  That’s called insight.

On the way home I can review the call I just made.  How did the actual call that I made compare and contrast to the call that I had planned to make?  Did I get the outcome that I wanted?  Now I can critique my own performance and I have the tools to help me do it.  That’s called hindsight.

To become a Breakaway Sales Performer, you need to master all three – hindsight, insight, and foresight!
