WHATEVER SHE CAN’T SHOW YOU IS THE REASON FOR CALL RELUCTANCE.
“Afraid of rejection” is garbage. Anyone who says that that is their reason, you can easily call their bluff by setting a tape recorder on a table and ask, “Invite me to come to your business meeting.” They can’t do it. Why? It’s not fear of rejection… tape recorders don’t reject you.
AFRAID OF REJECTION, OUT OF COMFORT ZONE, CALL RELUCTANCE, AND ANY OTHER FANCY PHRASE A PERSON CAN COME UP WITH IS ONLY A MASK TO COVER UP WHAT THEY DON’T KNOW HOW TO DO.
I DON’T CARE IF THE PERSON HAS BEEN IN SALES FOR 20 YEARS – IF THEY WON’T DO IT, IT’S BECAUSE THEY DON’T KNOW HOW.
Fear, fear of rejection, and/or call reluctance is same animal – not being able to predict an outcome. That’s basis of all fear. The person just simply can’t predict what will happen if they do something. If you go bungee jumping – it’s inability to predict outcome that causes fear. If you defuse bombs (my past profession) – it’s inability to predict outcome that causes fear.
I’ve seen this surface from some very unlikely people. There was a person who had seen a fair amount of success but was not able to reap rewards from one of her business legs. The compensation plan required her to have 12 on her front line to earn on depth of organization.
When she first came into business she had a friend with her and her friend saw business at same time. Her friend built a big business under her. So she had one very large organization. But she could only earn on one level deep.
When she had 12 on her front line she could earn 6 levels deep of whole organization. But she couldn’t get other 11 people. Everyone in company (not just her downline) looked up to her because she had such a large business. But she couldn’t earn money on all volume until she got those 11 people on her front line. She talked to me about it. She said she wasn’t making calls because of “call reluctance.” I didn’t buy her excuse.
Don’t you buy your downline’s excuses –run them through check sheet above and train them on whatever they can’t do.
Don’t you buy your own excuses – get trained.
With respect and admiration,
