PURPOSE

Purpose

 CONSCIOUS SELLING'S Guiding Principles for Professional Selling

We believe that the skillful application of Conscious Selling's customer centric, integrity based sales methodology is the most direct route to sales success and peace of mind.

Our purpose is to enable sale professionals to achieve new levels of success by inspiring them to 'Sell the Conscious Way'.

  1. A Conscious Seller understands the science of selling and acknowledges that the human organism can only be in one mode at a time –Defensive or Growth. A Conscious Seller knows that selling can only occur while the buyer is in Growth mode.

  2. A Conscious Seller’s Intention is to only do business if both parties are convinced it is the right thing to do.

  3. People do business with people they like and trust. The Conscious Seller understands that the best way to build trust is to be trustworthy.

  4. It is only in the presence of authentic Compassion that our buyer will feel comfortable enough to tell you what is really going on.

  5. Having the Conviction that selling the Conscious Way is truly in the best interest of both parties is fundamental to ensuring that you stay firmly in the leadership position throughout the selling cycle.

  6. The Conscious Seller has no need to convince the buyer to buy. The Conscious Seller merely facilitates a role reversal whereby it becomes the buyer’s responsibility to do the convincing.

  7. A Conscious Seller is committed to providing solutions that meet or exceed the client’s success criteria.

  8. A Conscious Seller understands that every step of the way there needs to be a mutual level of Commitment. You cannot force your buyer to be as committed as you are to the next step(s). You can only find out if they have reasons to be, and do not hold on to buyers who are not holding on to you.

  9. The Conscious Seller recognizes the value of time, thus does not give it away. The buyer must earn it.

  10. Selling the Conscious Way is not about arm wrestling your prospect to the mat at the end of a lengthy sales cycle, it’s about co-building a plan that defines the most efficient way to get to a “yes” or “no” in a mutually agreed-upon timeframe.

  11. A Conscious Seller understands that she or he ought not to put a quote or price on the table until they are first 100% convinced it is in the buyer’s best interest to pay for your solution.

  12. A Conscious Seller practices daily meditation, pranayama, and visualization to align mind, body, spirit, and optimize personal presence.
