In my experience, the ability to be teachable is a vital trait for personal and professional growth. Being teachable means having an open and receptive mindset, a willingness to learn from others, and the ability to adapt to new situations and challenges.

Here are a few reasons why being teachable is so important:

  1. Continuous Improvement: Being teachable enables you to continuously improve yourself, both personally and professionally. It allows you to acquire new knowledge, skills, and perspectives that can help you become a better version of yourself.
  2. Career Advancement: In the workplace, being teachable can lead to career advancement opportunities. Employers value employees who are willing to learn, grow, and adapt to new technologies and processes.
  3. Better Relationships: Being teachable also improves your relationships with others. It allows you to listen to others’ perspectives and communicate more effectively, which can lead to better collaboration, teamwork, and overall success.

So, how can you cultivate a teachable mindset? Here are a few tips:

  1. Stay Humble: Acknowledge that you don’t know everything and that there’s always room for improvement.
  2. Seek Feedback: Ask for feedback from others and be open to constructive criticism. Use it as an opportunity to learn and grow.
  3. Embrace Challenges: Don’t shy away from challenges or new experiences. Embrace them as opportunities to learn and expand your knowledge and skills.
  4. Be Curious: Ask questions and seek out new information. Curiosity can lead to new insights and perspectives.

Being teachable is a valuable trait that can lead to personal and professional growth. By staying humble, seeking feedback, embracing challenges, and being curious, you can cultivate a teachable mindset and achieve success in all areas of your life.

The Power of Connectedness in Smart Prospecting: Lessons from Brene Brown

“I define connection as the energy that exists between people when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgment; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship.” – Dr. Brene Brown

Dr. Brene Brown’s quote above reminds us of the importance of building meaningful relationships in all aspects of life, including prospecting. As a salesperson, it’s easy to get caught up in the numbers game and forget that each lead represents a person with unique needs, wants, and desires.

Smart prospecting involves not only identifying potential customers but also taking the time to understand their needs and goals. By creating a connection with prospects, you can build trust and establish a foundation for a long-term business relationship.

Some questions think about:

  1. Have you sold a property before? If so, what did you learn from that experience?
  2. Are there any particular challenges you anticipate in the selling process?
  3. Are there any specific terms or conditions that are important to you in the selling process, such as closing costs or contingencies?
  4. Are there any other factors that are important to you in selecting an agent to represent you in the selling process?

To help develop your skills in building connections and relationships, I recommend two of Dr. Brown’s books: “Daring Greatly” and “Braving the Wilderness.” Both books explore the importance of vulnerability, courage, and empathy in fostering meaningful connections.

“Daring Greatly” emphasizes the power of vulnerability in building strong relationships, whether in business or personal life. Dr. Brown argues that showing vulnerability can help you connect with others on a deeper level and establish trust.

“Braving the Wilderness” focuses on the importance of belonging and connection. Dr. Brown challenges us to embrace our differences and show empathy towards others, even if we disagree with them. By creating a sense of belonging, we can build stronger and more meaningful relationships.

Smart prospecting requires more than just identifying potential customers. It involves creating meaningful connections and relationships with them. By applying Dr. Brene Brown’s insights and principles, we can develop a growth mindset and foster a sense of connection and community in our prospecting efforts.
