The sales and marketing specialists argue that besides the ability to sell being the most sought after skill in the world, working in sales can teach many critical skills:
1. The art of selling
Complete One argue that no matter the industry, there is always an element of sales involved. “Whether you are selling a product or selling yourself, sales is everywhere,” commented Glen Lowes, Managing Director at Complete One. A survey of business leaders conducted by Hult International Business School revealed that strong sales skills was a top 10 critical skill of today’s workplace.
2. Communication skills
Gaining the confidence and ability to be able to communicate ideas and speak eloquently is important in any career. As with any skill, practice makes perfect, and a sales job is the perfect profession to master that skill. Complete One believes that sales also helps individuals learn how to speak to, and connect with different types of people – something that is borderline essential in business. “Great leaders have the ability to inspire through speech, and this is one of the best things that sales teaches you,” commented Mr Lowes.
“Sales will force people out of their comfort zone and build their confidence,” claims Mr Lowes. The entrepreneur and business owner argues that closing deals and getting better at sales will help instil confidence. "Being able to speak to strangers and turn them into customers is a huge confidence booster and in both personal and professional ventures, confidence is a highly valuable tool,” commented Mr Lowes.
