)-- Many Sales Professionals face a mid career crisis after few years in Sales. It is often found that the sales job pressure and target chasing make the sales employees exhausted after a few years. There is a high chance of getting bogged down by boredom and frustration. A professional who once joined Sales with much vigour and energy, loses his enthusiasm and focus.
There is a story of 2 wood cutters cutting woods at the jungle. On the 1st day, the one who was doing the job laboriously without any break could manage to cut 6 trees, while the other who was taking a break at every two hours, cut 8 trees. This continued for the second day as well. On the 3rd day, the laborious one couldn’t resist himself from enquiring his partner about the tricks behind his productivity. His partner smiled and replied ‘I take a break at every 2 hours to sharpen my axe for 5 minutes’.
The story goes well for every profession. Everyone needs to sharpen his axe of knowledge and skills time to time.
All of us are one of the two woodcutters. Few of us keep on working and working and suddenly one day we realise that we have lost our ‘sharpness’, while few are intelligent and led a planned, systematic career ‘sharpening’.
New Skills Development and starting afresh is a way out. But it has its own challenges. It’s very hard to get your existing CTC and may need to compromise your standard of living!
The intelligent approach should be to move up the Sales Ladder with an enhanced CV/Resume, while continuing the existing job.
There is a famous quote "Intelligent People are those, who enjoy the work they do."
You need to dedicate 2-3 hours and enroll yourself for a higher study in Sales & Marketing. It’s advisable to procure an international certification or Diploma from an institute of repute. This exercise will not only impart new skills and learning but also act as CV enhancer. This will open few more doors to explore.
Now, the challenge remains to select a trustworthy institute whose diploma or certificate will carry some weights on CV. There are lots of private institutes mushrooming out here and there and unfortunately all claims to be ‘Professional & Knowledge Driven’. As an end user, it becomes really tough to filter out the bogus money driven institutes from the genuine ones.
Institute of Sales & Marketing Management (UK) is one organisation whose brand image and accredited diplomas are appreciated throughout the globe.
