The pandemic has brought many changes to our everyday lives, and that’s no different for businesses. Many businesses faced new and unexpected challenges as a result of quarantines, governmental guidelines and general uncertainty. While there are tools, tactics and strategies that have remained relevant and stood the test of time, all the recent disruptions to ‘how things are done’ are the perfect excuse to evaluate your current strategy and make some updates.
Managing a rapidly evolving and changing workplace can be stressful on every member of the team. Incorporating mindfulness into your business helps team members manage change and handle any resulting stress. Mindfulness practices also impact the quality of your business relationships- with vendors, prospects, clients and employees. The quality of these relationships can mean the difference between success and failure.
This can be especially important in sales. Often, potential customers are made aware of your product or service before they are actually in need of it. Being mindful of your messaging and what it says to potential customers helps build trust and begin to develop meaningful relationships with prospective customers. Continuing that care through the sales process demonstrates to your future customers that you can be trusted and that you understand how to meet their own unique and individual needs.
