Why You Cannot Succeed in Sales and Be Conflict Averse

first_imgIf you are in sales, management, or leadership, you are going to have to be comfortable dealing with conflict. Success requires that you find a way to work through conflict.There are going to be conflicts around the commitments you need your dream client to make so they can produce the outcomes they need. The more serious the change, the more opportunity there is for equally serious conflict. When you ask people to make change, it comes with the territory.There are going to be larger conflicts around what the right solution needs to look like once you bring in additional stakeholders, many of whom have their own wants and needs, and who may also work actively work against you. You can surface these conflicts as you try to help people find a middle way, achieving the outcomes they need while mitigating the challenges that change creates.There will be conflict when it comes to the investment you need your client to make, and that conflict can be great when there is a lot at stake. Your clients want the outcomes they need, and much of the time, they want those outcomes without having to invest the necessary money. They also want to avoid the conflict that comes from asking for and spending more money than they are presently spending.Salespeople who are conflict averse have trouble obtaining the outcomes they need because those outcomes aren’t easily achieved without some level of conflict. Salespeople who don’t like cold calling are really afraid of the conflict that sometimes comes with interrupting people.As a manager, you will have conflict about the work that needs to be done, how much work is necessary, and how fast it needs to be done. This can cause serious conflict. You will have conflict about pipeline integrity, the opportunities being pursued, and whether or not your sales process is being followed to produce the greatest odds of winning. You will have the conflicts that come with providing your sales team with air cover from upper management, and the conflict that comes with selling your own company to do the right thing.As a leader, you are going to have the conflict that comes with determining strategy and leading your organization to reach its full potential. You are going to have conflicts when people disagree with your vision, when they act outside your values, and when they put the culture you are building at risk.I was recently asked why I seem to enjoy conflict, and I agreed that I do enjoy it. The reason I enjoy conflict is because the better results is always on the other side of conflict, and you can’t get there until you get through the conflict. This doesn’t mean that you can’t be polite, professional, and collaborative. It doesn’t mean that you can’t actually improve your relationships while engaging in the conflict. But it does mean that you have to be comfortable in conflict. Essential Reading!

Azpilicueta backs new boy Arrizabalaga to thrive at Chelsea

first_imgCesar Azpilicueta has backed his compatriot and friend Kepa Arrizabalaga to live up to his €80m price tag at ChelseaThe Spain international became the world’s most expensive goalkeeper of all-time after completing his transfer to Chelsea from Athletic Bilbao in a €80m deal on Wednesday.While he has only just arrived at Stamford Bridge, it looks like Arrizabalaga could be thrown straight into the firing line in Saturday’s away trip to Huddersfield in Chelsea’s opening game of the Premier League season with regular number one Thibaut Courtois having now joined Real Madrid.But Azpilicueta, who comes from the same Basque region of Spain as his new teammate, knows Arrizabalaga and is certain he will up to the task.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“I know him well,” said Azpilicueta on the club website.“He is a very good goalkeeper. He can reach a very high level here in England at Chelsea, and we are obviously happy to have him with us.“As a person he is a very normal guy, he’s very friendly. He’s very close to his people. On the pitch he is always trying to help. He is very communicative and is always talking to the team, and the defence in particular. He is still only 23 and I am sure he will keep growing.“He is from the Basque area too, quite close to my region. We know each other from the last years in the national team. I have always had a good relationship with him. Our hometowns are quite close and for me to have him here is something special, and I will try to help him settle.”last_img read more

Puel bemoans slow start

first_imgLeicester City manager Claude Puel has bemoaned his team’s slow start in their defeat to Manchester United.The Leicester boss insists his team slow start cost them in their 2-1 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.Leicester City conceded a penalty as early as the third minute when Daniel Amartey handled the ball in the box and United’s captain for the night Paul Pogba duly converted.Luke Shaw scored his first professional goal when he was put to through on goal by Juan Mata to double United’s lead.Jamie Vardy pulled one back for the Foxes in added time but it was too little and too late to affect the scoreline at that point.“It’s disappointing for the players because they gave their best,” said Puel, according to Goal.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.“Of course, to concede a goal just a couple of seconds after the beginning of the game is a shame and we have to correct this.“Our kick-off was not good enough. Our first-half was a good performance with good quality, good pressing, good play forward and a lot of chances. We needed to score in this moment, a strong period of domination in the first-half.“We pushed and we played against a team who were deep on the pitch. Without space, it was difficult.“We found success with good moves and good quality and perhaps in the second half we had good energy to finish this performance for another result but I think at the end it is a disappointment. It is not, for me, a fair result.”“We dominated this game with good play and a lot of chances. With a lot of free-kicks and set pieces, we can do a lot better with these situations,” Puel continued.“Sometimes we were unlucky with the possibilities to score in different moves. I’m happy about the performance but it would have been better to win or draw for our fans. It would have been a good reward for our play.”last_img read more
