Everyone is familiar with the concept of having a “good day” or a “bad day.” When it comes to a day in the life of a sales professional, making the most of your time is essential. What’s more, when it comes to sales, it’s important to keep an open mind and a positive outlook. How can you maintain that through countless projects and a heavy workload (or while struggling with the opposite)?
Caroline Webb details how in her acclaimed debut, How to Have a Good Day. With a multi-faceted background as an executive coach, economist and management consultant, Webb delves into the science and skill sets needed to sustain positivity in your day-to-day life. The book boasts a seven-point guide structured by neuroscience, psychology and behavioral science while retaining a sense of wisdom and humor. You’ll most certainly need those last two things!
