A Google search of “Why is Emotional Intelligence Important in Sales” yields over 22 million results, proving this is on the minds of many today. Participants in last year’s Emotional Intelligence (EI) BizDev Forum asked for more information on EI – and here we are!

In Business Development, we often hear “no” more often than we hear “yes”. Those who grow business the best show they are resilient because they:

  • move forward regardless of difficulties
  • find ways to win despite setbacks
  • bounce back from obstacles

Resiliency is a muscle that gets stronger the more it’s used. Come “exercise” your EI Resiliency in a session designed to:

  • Teach 4 important resilience competencies
  • Learn pro-active strategies to build resilience
  • Complete a personal Resilience quiz

“While salespeople will find success when they lead with empathy, they’ll find greater success when they respond with resilience.”  (Gary Galvin, CEO Galvin Technologies)
