How Can Emotional Intelligence Improve Your Sales?
Emotional intelligence (EQ) is all about understanding, using, and managing your emotions in positive ways. It’s being honest with yourself about what you’re feeling without making excuses or blaming others. Individuals with high EQ are often better communicators and listeners than others. As a result, it’s easier for these people to overcome life challenges and form relationships while remaining emotionally balanced.
“Sometimes we think a good leader is just super knowledgeable about their industry, products, services, and all of that. But there’s more to it. The real way these people rise to the top is how well they treat others,” explains Merit. “This is the real essence of emotional intelligence. To be more influential with other people, we must know what influences us. We need to understand our own emotions and our impact on the people we interact with.”
It’s essential to understand your strengths and weaknesses so that you can be the best salesperson possible. You don’t want to constantly have highs and lows. Improving your emotional intelligence can help you achieve more balance.
