Salespeople once needed big egos to succeed. They could convince strangers – their customers – to buy what they had to sell. For many salespeople, their gold-plated egos got them where they wanted to be in sales.

Today, a dominant, ain’t-I-great, overarching ego will kill you professionally. Salespeople now need something more and better: They need empathy. Being empathetic shows your prospects and customers that you care about them. It enables you to connect and communicate effectively.

The most successful sales professionals in any organization are usually the ones that have consciously or unconsciously mastered the fundamentals I’m about to share with you. In my company Pure Green Franchise, I teach all our team members that there are no short-cuts, and in any communication, the battle is won before it even starts. If I ever hear a sales professional say he or she is going to “wing it,” I know that he or she is not prepared.

Flawless execution of the following communication strategies is par for the course.

Habitica has done a stellar job of gamifying habit formation.

The Good:

  • Fun, RPG-like habit tracking. Lose health when you break habits, gain levels and EXP when you keep them. Buy equipment and items for your character.
  • Immersive features and add-ons. Join Guilds, Parties, Taverns, etc., which are social groups/chats of people with common interests, and build habits together.

The Bad:

  • Punishment for breaking habits is too light.
