Testimonials for the MSP:
“Great session! Good pacing with the right amount of interaction, contemplation, discussion & the generous & genuine sharing of everyone really struck the right chords. It brought to light many issues that a salesperson encounters or thinks about but never really acts upon & ‘forces’ us to confront them & really take action! I enjoyed it tremendously, thankyou! Useful, insightful and practical!”
“I have been enlightened by the term mindfulness in this program, because it has been too easy to approach marketing & sales from the materialistic point of view. I can now recognize my emotions as an advantage & not an obstacle to my sales”
“A very useful and insightful workshop. The mindful questioning technique allows for valuable discoveries of our personal (marketing & sales) lessons, as well as general creative ideas, thanks a lot!”
“I got a lot out of this. I feel much more positive about marketing my services & actually quite excited about it.
It has been a revealing experience in that I now recognize the negative barriers/emotions I need to work with. I also have specific positive things to focus on now on a daily basis.”
“Very appropriate topic & content, very different from the normal presentation, you covered some really interesting & pertinent points. The sentence completion work was great, & there was a nice balance of silence, theory & discussion. It was good to receive the MP3 recordings of the practices that we did”
“Great starting point! I it has made me curious to see & explore more concrete examples of how mindfulness would be applied daily to specific instances, as well as specific approaches that would greatly improve my daily (marketing & sales) practice.”
“Very interesting insights. The workshop encouraged me to accept my negative feelings about marketing & sales & with that acceptance that I may be able to deal with it. It somehow made me feel that M&S isn’t as bad & as complicated as I thought!”
“A great time to be learning this as I am in the midst of confronting my fear of marketing & sales. My business is at the crossroads & has the potential to grow, provided I break out of this cycle of fear. Right now I think I am more afraid of success than failure, for success means more work & I need to know how to live a more balanced life. Thankyou! Lots of learning gained.”
