Start the Year Off Right: New Sales Ideas to Try This Quarter – AllBusiness.com

Posted: at 1:41 pm


without comments

Did you make any New Years resolutions this year? If you didnt, why not consider a few new approaches in your selling instead of making resolutions? Here are a few sales ideas to consider so you can start the year off right.

A recent study published in the British Medical Journal found that clinical articles involving a male first or last author were more likely to present research findings positively in titles and abstracts compared with articles in which both the first and last author were women. As a result, the studies authored by men received about 10% more citations than the studies authored by women.

Did you know that citations are used for hiring and promotion decisions? Women scientists are not promoting themselves as well as men and suffer as a result.

I would imagine that business and sales are no different than the medical arena with men also making more sweeping claims about their work and women doing so less often.

However, theres one very obvious area I notice a discrepancy between men and women taking credit: when they receive compliments. Ive observed that women tend to minimize the compliments they get. They will say, Its nothing or No problem.

Ladies: You work just as hard as men do. Please acknowledge compliments with a Thanks for noticing or It was my pleasure. By graciously accepting the compliment you strengthen the compliment by acknowledging you did something special. Refuting a compliment hurts you because you are disputing what the speaker says. Dont do that!

I believe its much easier to criticize than it is to be complimentary. After all, isnt it easier to spot whats going wrong instead of seeing all that is going right? Part of what youre selling is your attitude. Who would prefer to buy from a complaining, negative know-it-all? While thats an extreme description, think about how you are perceived by others. Are you known for your positive attitude? Or are you known for your Debbie Downer persona?

This year, why not hold your tongue instead of complaining? Remember that criticism is a complaint whether you perceive it that way or not. Catch yourself when all you have to contribute is something negative. And even if you start offering a negative critique, its not too late to pull back. You can stop yourself with Oh, never mind.

Other Articles FromAllBusiness.com:

Im not saying to ignore all faults. What I am saying is you need to think about an attitude adjustment if all your comments are about small, insignificant items that only you have noticed that need improvement.

Ill never forget a sales call I made with a newly hired salesperson. The customer was engaged in the sales conversation, and I thought the salesperson was doing a good job answering questions. But there were a few questions the customer asked that made me curious about why he was asking them. At this point, my colleague should have asked, in a non-threatening way, why the customer was asking those specific questions, but he didnt. However, that wasnt his biggest error.

From Cop to VP: Lisa Terry’s Journey to Allied Universal – Security Sales & Integration

Posted: at 1:41 pm


without comments

Lisa Terry, vice president, vertical markets healthcare at Allied Universal, discusses her professional experience with tips on how women can succeed and excel in the industry.

SECURE Perspectives is a monthly column by theSecurity Industry Association (SIA)profiling women in the security industry. This column is part of SIAsWomen in Security Forum, an initiative to support the participation of women in the security field through programs, networking and professional growth events and thought leadership opportunities.

For this edition ofSECURE Perspectives, SIA spoke with Lisa Terry, vice president, vertical markets healthcare at Allied Universal.

Lisa Terry: I am proud to say that I am a product of affirmative action. I was able to apply and be accepted into the police academy in a large metropolitan city as soon as I graduated from college in 1982. In addition to the altruistic privilege of serving and protecting, I wanted to be a police officer because I could make the same pay as my male counterparts (which was a big deal when women typically earned 52 cents compared to men who earned $1.00 for the same jobs).

In 1982, a female police officer had to perform the job in the same manner as the male police officers. A large part of that performance was to provide a physical presence. The only assistance my college degree provided me was in report writing; thus, I worked out at the gym and ran twice a day most days in an effort to maintain the minimum physical ability required for the position. It was a tough gig, but failure was not an option.

In the 70s and 80s, many of us who received the career opportunities not previously made available to our gender initially believed once given the opportunity for the job we would automatically be accepted by our employers and coworkers and society as a whole. We were sorely mistaken. It has taken years and multiple generations of individuals who were brought up to accept diversity as the normal way of life. Changing perceptions and circumstances have not occurred overnight, and we still have a ways to go before equality is truly realized across all occupation sectors. But I am so very hopeful when I look at my own sons and their partners. They are not satisfied unless they are able to participate in a diverse environment.

Allied Universal is a leading security and facility services company with more than 200,000 employees and revenues exceeding $7 billion that provides security services and solutions. We have been in business since 1957. The company combines top talent, risk analyses and technology to deliver tailored security services, technology solutions and professional services such as special event, janitorial and consulting and risk advisory services.

Our highly trained security professionals are responsible for protecting client sites covering multiple specialty sectors, such as education, healthcare, retail, commercial real estate, government institutions, residential, defense and aerospace, chemical/petrochemical/utilities, public transportation, financial institutions and manufacturing/industrial. Our reach and local presence cover North America and key international markets.

We have women serving in various roles across the organization, including: Senior vice president Regional president Vice president Director Senior manager Business development manager Operations manager Supervisor Police officer Security officer

Allied Universals female security professionals lend their expertise across all divisions and sectors of our organization, serving in key leadership roles in human resources, technology, marketing and sales and throughout our field operations.

Because women are continuing to represent a higher percentage of the purchase and usage decisions in the marketplace, it is important that the security industry intentionally reflect that diversity and bring more women into their workforce. Experience, knowledge and technology are far better tools to reducing the drivers of risk than a mere physical presence. With the advent of technology solutions complimenting physical security, the preference in the industry is leaning more towards specialization, knowledge and skills over a physical presence or perceived strength. That is a great equalizer when it comes to the question of gender.

Im not sure it is possible to pinpoint every hurdle, but I do believe acknowledging that conscious and unconscious gender bias exists in the workplace is an important first step not just in the security industry, but in every industry.

One important trend that I am seeing is that more young girls and women are being targeted earlier into programs such as STEM, CyBHER (Empower Girls in Cyber Security Themes for K-12), Girl Scouts badge for cybersecurity, etc.

Allied Universal leads the industry in the diversity of services and scope capabilities we bring to our clients and communities we protect. Whether it is one of our proprietary technology solutions that enhance the skills of our security professionals or one of our integrated technology solutions that provide cost savings, we endeavor to seamlessly blend people, expertise and technology to yield the best results for our clients. In our organization, there are both men and women leading the charge, bringing these solutions to our clients.

Our organization is dedicated to the training and development of all our security professionals. Training is continuous and accessible through our online learning platform. This training, combined with on-the-job coaching and our organizations history of promoting from within, offers tremendous career path opportunities. We have numerous examples of security professionals, which include women, who have carved out an illustrious career in security which began as a security officer. Over the years, these individuals have successfully leveraged their on-the-job experiences and training to move into leadership and executive roles within our company.

It is my hope that the Women in Security Forum can achieve a network of leadership mentoring. It is difficult to bring more women into an industry that does not have more women leaders.

Many times, women will not apply for promotions within our industry because they do not believe that they are fully competent for the position; however, men do apply for those same promotions even when they do not believe that they are fully capable of performing the position. My advice to women in the industry is: Take the leap of faith! You are capable of more than you realize!

My mother was my greatest influence. I was the youngest of six children (two brothers and three sisters). My mother was the strongest person that I have ever known; she worked outside the home, and yet she was an outstanding mom, civic leader, political advocate and partner to my father for more than 60 years. She did not flinch when I told her that I wanted a football, a baseball and a ball glove one Christmas (and she made sure that my father supported her in purchasing those gifts for me). My mother pushed me to be the best I could be in academics, and at the same time she taught me servant leadership by requiring that I volunteer with Habitat for Humanity.

She wholeheartedly supported me when I decided to take the leap and apply to a large metropolitan police department after college. Although she was not a runner, she would continuously motivate me in my marathon training efforts. Long before LGBTQ became a household acronym, my mother taught me that all humans are different and may look and love differently. She taught me that as an educated woman, it was my responsibility to pay it forward and speak up for all persons who were under-represented. It is my belief that the confidence and empathy my mother instilled in me throughout my life help to guide me to my career in law enforcement and security management.

My definition of success is being able to make a contribution to the world in the hope of leaving it a better place for those who may come after me.

The security industry is not only a necessary but honorable profession. Focus your efforts on learning from one another, sharing with one another and celebrating this wonderful tapestry that is our very diverse and ever-changing society.

During the last 15 years, that dynamic has changed significantly. The Internet has provided a channel for our customers to gather information that used to be delivered only by salespeople, which has helped prime the pump of the selling cycle. Today, it is possible and common for a salesperson to work 60 hours per week without any prospecting or business development activity. We are no longer forced to make things happenthey just happen.

Sounds great, doesnt it? Well, maybe it does if one wants a career taking orders or winning the battle to the bottom of the price race. When we rely solely on other sources to educate our markets, then we get backed into a corner of reaction. We cannot control or provide guidance all we can do is react to our customers and prospects whims.

Our only value is in delivering proposals, and practically anyone can do that. Sowhat benefit are we providing? Why do our customers need us? What differentiates us from our competition?

If I was limited to giving one piece of advice to salespeople leading into the 2020, it would be to reverse this trend of reactivity; therefore, the number one thing salespeople should do in 2020 is become proactive. That sounds much easier to do than it really is, so here are four secrets to shifting from reactivity to proactivity.

1. Define what you will proactively do. What will you do with your proactive time? Off the top of my head, I recommend prospecting for new accounts, sales training, finding problems at your current accounts before they happen, and networking. There are dozens of other things you can do as long as you spend time on the important tasks that are not urgent. This is where greatness lives.

2. Dont try to be perfect. A typical impulse is to make a resolution to be proactive all the time; instead take baby steps in the first year. If you currently spend 98% of your work hours in reactionary time, then set a goal to be at 95% by April, and 90% by the end of the year. You will be blown away by the massive change in your results if you spend only four to five hours per week in proactive mode. Make the move to 70% next year just take baby steps this year.

3. Dont wait to find the time just do it. Every time I begin this journey with a client, they share the same exact comment with me: Im already working 12-hour dayswhere am I going to find the time? Dont find the time. Determine the minimum amount of proactive work that you will do each week and do it. If it takes four hours, then do it dont try to find the four hours. The tasks that fall off your plate probably arent worth your time anyway. Trust me on this one just do it.

4. Create a process and block off time on your calendar. I recently convinced the owner of one of my clients to invest Friday mornings on proactive and strategic work. We were both excited about his first morning away from the office out of crisis mode. Sometime before 9 a.m. that morning, he texted me: Ok, so where do I start?

Proactive mode is all about making things happen, so you have to create that process. No one will do it for you. Define your prospecting routine, create an agenda for your brainstorming sessions, and above all else block off the time on your calendar. Proactive time doesnt happen on its own. You must generate it and schedule it in your calendar.
