The Impact of Emotional Discipline In Sales

As a full-service sales and marketing agency, we work closely with our client’s sales force. In that, we come across some similarities on why some reps succeed and some fail. For those that flame out, one commonality we see is how a rep can emotionally cripple their sale even before it begins and during the sale which could have been swaying towards closing the deal in the beginning.

This emotional “cripple” comes from a lack of emotional discipline. Sales is a tough job in the first place, and can be very wearing on a person’s psyche-if they let it. Self-defeating thoughts such as “What I have to say doesn’t matter”, “This call will probably result in nothing” and other similar thoughts contribute to the death of the sale. This negative emotion causes the rep to lack confidence, not listen actively and so many more actions that ultimately translate over into the sale. The prospect, who is on the receiving end of the communication and emotions being put forth by the rep, will then receive and translate all those emotions and actions as a weakness in the salesperson, or, perceive a lesser value or no value in the product or service being offered.

On the other hand, emotional discipline in a sales rep is important in regards to positive emotion. Being enthusiastic, visualizing success and having reaffirming thoughts can all translate into a more positive sales process and outcome.
