Are you considered a Determined Leader among your colleagues?
Part of having a champion mindset means you will be a leader among your peers.
Even if you don’t directly manage salespeople, you still want to be considered a leader on your team. Leaders aren’t only found at the top of an organizational chart—they can exist anywhere along the way, performing leadership tasks and mentoring others wherever they reside in the organization.
Why is being a determined leader such an important part of a sales team?
Leaders make every other team member better. They raise all who are around them to higher levels of achievement. Other team members want to follow leaders because they create a path of success for them. Sales professionals who want to strive to achieve greatness learn from the leaders who came before them.
Leaders show gratitude. Be sure to thank those who helped you along the way. It is the right thing to do—and you may be in a situation someday where you need their help.
Leaders give back. They do this by mentoring other sales team members and helping them achieve their professional and personal goals. They also give back to the community by supporting service organizations.
Leaders understand that giving back will repay dividends tenfold and reinforce their purpose.
Pick some areas where you have experience or can develop expertise and build your capability as a Leader. You can help others in your organization achieve greater success in those areas.
Even if you do not aspire to a management role, you can still contribute significantly to your organization by serving as a Determined Leader.
