Listening Skills


Listen to win Sales

Very few people are good listeners. In your everyday life how many people can you remember who are good listeners, people who remembered your name or what you said. In fact you would have met a couple of people in recent weeks you thought were good listeners, What were your feelings towards these people. I am sure you have more Trust, Confidence and Faith in them. Most of us find it very hard to listen.

Salespeople think of themselves as being good talkers instead of Listeners. You hear people saying, 'He is a born Salesman'. He has the gift of gab. Kerry Johnson in his book 'Mastering the Game' says many people believe that speech is power and that listening is subservient. He believes a good listener has much more power in a Conversation. The listener is able to get more information than the talker. When two people are talking, the person who dominates the conversation is the person who is asking the questions and listening. The job of the salesperson is to listen to his customers. Most successful salespeople will agree.
