The Respected Salesperson: How to change your mind before you change minds by Arishma Singh

The Respected Salesperson on

When someone tells you, ‘Don’t be salesy!’, it almost feels like they are throwing a swear word at you.

But why is this so?

Sales is much more complex than number crunching, reading scripts, or having coffees with clients. For too long, we’ve seen sales as something external to us. As salespeople, we spend enormous amounts of time honing our skills and figuring out how to close effectively so we get more ‘yeses’ from clients. This is what we think will make us good salespeople.

And to some extent, it is.

But, in only focusing on the external work, we do not give ourselves the opportunity to realise our potential. You can see this in top athletes, performers, and artists. They don’t just ace their external game. They also become masters of the complex inner game that truly underpins their performance.

This is the part of sales that Arishma Singh is passionate about – the inner mental game – and she is inviting you to lean in and take the journey. The internal work that must take place for you will move you beyond this perception of a salesperson. If you want to differentiate yourself, it’s time you become the Respected Salesperson. For you to become that, you first need to change your own mind, before you seek to change the minds of others. This is where you will notice your very own genius will come forth.

Arishma will also introduce you to the THRIVE methodology that she developed to create sustainable success, and an evidence-based self-help therapeutic mind body tool that she uses on a daily basis – Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), known as Tapping. She will equip you with the tools you need to grow respect for yourself and, ultimately, the ability to command respect from others.

Within the realm of sales, the expression “Avoid being too pushy in your sales approach” frequently carries an undertone of critique. But have you ever wondered why this is the case? Arishma Singh’s book, “The Respected Salesperson: How to Change Your Mind Before You Change Minds,” dives headfirst into this intriguing question.

A Fresh Perspective on Sales

For far too long, sales have been perceived as a game of numbers, scripts, and client meetings over coffee. As salespeople, we invest an enormous amount of time honing our external skills, all in pursuit of that elusive “yes” from our clients. This external mastery is undoubtedly crucial in becoming a proficient salesperson.

However, Arishma Singh challenges us to explore a different narrative. She invites us to look inward, to venture into the intricate inner journey that truly shapes our external performance. This approach echoes the strategies employed by top athletes, performers, and artists who not only excel in their external endeavors but also master the nuanced inner dimensions that define their performance.

Unlocking the Power of the Inner Game

Arishma Singh’s passion lies in the uncharted territory of the inner mental game of sales. She urges us to embark on a transformative journey that commences with altering our own mindset before attempting to influence the perspectives of others. In this process, you’ll unearth your unique genius.

In the book, Arishma introduces readers to her groundbreaking THRIVE methodology, a framework designed to facilitate sustainable success. Additionally, she shares her reliance on an evidence-based self-help therapeutic technique known as Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), commonly referred to as Tapping. With these tools in your arsenal, you’ll acquire the means to foster self-respect and, consequently, command respect from those around you.

“As a sales leader looking for ways to enhance team performance you’re often focusing on repetitive sales training and old school fixes. Most sales tuition or training is typically focused on buyer persona or sales process/methodology. Arishma has taken a different approach by providing honest and powerful self-reflection coupled with tools and techniques to support you to take control of your emotions, mindset and ultimately your performance.”
