Fears and anxieties before calls are signals of a struggle and possible self-image problem
Most of us hate picking up the phone and talking to people we don’t know. How does this problem manifest itself? We can self-check with our attitude toward completing the required behaviors and activities. Procrastination is a great example of problems with our self image. We put off doing what we have to do and find other things to keep us occupied. Suddenly, time has passed and we are still faced with a sales quota to tackle and people to contact via telephone to engage with our product.
Exercise #1: Let’s attempt to explore our attitude toward different roles and uniforms.
Let's measure your attitude toward different roles.
Exercise 1: How Do You Respond When They Call
Self-Image Diagnostic: The Uniform test
How did you do on this first Exercise? How did you relate to these uniforms or roles?
We are programmed to not want to help or respond to sales professionals. We are fighting against patterned perceptions of our uniforms and that is impacting how we view our self in this role as cold-caller, business development, or sales professional.
ROLE PLAY: Corey and I role play a call from an emergency personnel: A Fireman Cold Call
Corey automatically responds when I identify my uniform as a Fireman. He’s eager to know what’s happened and I can freely interrogate him and he follows my instructions. Is this how you feel when a sales person cold calls you?
Exercise #2: Lets inventory our own Self-Image, Attitude, and Uniform Performance ranking
You can be as honest about your rankings because you don’t have to hand this in…yet!
Exercise Review: Your uniform performance is dictated by your attitude

The Self-Image-Uniform-Role test gives us a snapshot view of our current view into how we see our identities and uniform/role performance.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Did I finish all my selling activities today?
  • Am I complaining about the quality of the leads or the quality of the product?
  • Am I feeling like crap each time I either pick up or put down the phone? BLEH

If you are stuck seeing yourself less than a 10 in your Self-Image, you’ll always perform less than a 10 in you role.

  • A basic understanding of how the web browser, rendering, headers, cookies and sessions
  • A basic understanding of Javascript and PHP to follow the examples
Что Вы изучите?
  • You will achieve courage to overcome your fear of picking up the phone
