Would You Please Stop Whining? Sales Training Session

OMG . . . don't you get tired of selling coworkers who constantly complain. “The market is terrible. The company has quality problems. Prices are too high. Cold calling doesn’t work. The company should be doing more marketing to get quality leads.”

And it’s never the complainer's fault that they don't have any business. It's everybody else's.

Some salespeople are lucky. They have an office with a door, and they can close it to keep the complainer out. Other salespeople sit in a bullpen or in a cubicle. When a complainer corners you, there is nowhere to hide.

Listening to people complain when there is work to do is stressful, especially when you feel pressed for time. If you don’t have a strong relationship, you could nip the conversation off by politely stating you’re on a deadline to make a call or get information to a customer.

What do you do if the complainer is a friend, but you don’t have time—or you’re not in the mood to listen to depressing talk?  Look for the next post to handle this situation.
