When it rains, it pours at Smith’s Memorial Primary

first_img…teachers complain of leaking roofTeachers at the Smith’s Memorial Primary School, Hadfield Street, Georgetown, are fuming while at the same time hoping for urgent attention to be paid to the leaking roof at the institution, which is currently taking a beating on the pupils as the daily downpours continue.A section of the auditorium drenched by rainfall due to the leaking roofGuyana Times was told that the leaking roof went unnoticed at the school for months during the dry weather but now that the rainy season has begun, students and teachers are being forced to move around their classrooms to avoid getting wet.This publication visited the school on Wednesday morning for an event during which a heavy downpour began, forcing children to shift around in the building.In fact, the Head Teacher of the school, Iyodele Hamilton, was being interviewed in her office when she too was distracted by a leakage coming from above her.She explained that the Education Ministry was informed of the situation since last term and promises were made to have the issue rectified as soon as possible.According to the Head Teacher, the school was visited on Tuesday by an official who seemed as though he was assessing the situation. She, however, complained that several other parts of the building also leak whenever it rains, especially the auditorium which is generally used to facilitate formal events.Moreover, the auditorium also houses the Grade Five and Six classes which are often made uncomfortable by the rainfall.“We are looking for help in that area, with immediate effect that would be good,” Hamilton shared.A teacher who did not state her name, informed this publication that the roof was fixed before but the issue seems to be reoccurring. That teacher said she hopes that the pupils and staffers can benefit from a new school in the near future as many school are undergoing repairs.Efforts by Guyana Times to contact senior officials at the Education Ministry proved futile.last_img read more

It’s clear they are doing things that others aren’t doing, but what are those things? Today’s guest, Mike Schultz has released a book that dives into the research behind the successful sales pros and has formulated his observations into some clear key points that he calls “Insight Selling.” Be sure to listen to this episode to get Mike’s insights into insight selling and learn how you can up your game.What #Sales winners do differently: Insight #Selling with Mike SchultzClick To TweetValue propositions are not what you thought.Most salespeople think of their value proposition as the key things their product or service does for their clients or customers. But Mike Schultz says that the things that make up your true value proposition have to do with the true value that you are able to provide to THAT particular customer, and it takes time to get to know what those needs are. Insight selling helps you move into the client’s world and discover the things that make your company of greatest value to them. Find out how to go about the insight selling process, on this episode of In The Arena.The best way to help sales prospects deal with their fear and risk.Many salespeople believe that if they bring up the risk or fear related to a purchase, they will lose the sale. But Mike’s research shows that the people who lose the sale are the ones who do NOT bring up the risks and fears the customer faces. Ignoring the real issues the customer is dealing with leaves doubt in their minds as to whether you’re truly interested in helping them, or just getting the sale. Learn how to use the reality of risk to make even more sales, on this episode of In The Arena.The 4 things to get your #buyer to believe in to minimize their #risk, on this episodeClick To TweetHonesty about the risk of a purchase can result in repeat sales.When a salesperson addresses the risks of the customer’s potential purpose head on, trust is built. And when trust is built, a good feeling results in the soul of the customer about the salesperson and the company they represent. The customer feels cared for, that their problems matter to the salesperson, not just the sale. Those are the customers that come back and express loyalty because they appreciate the concern the salesperson has shown for their situation. Learn how to build that kind of trust, on this episode.The trend toward dismissing the personal relationship in sales is a mistake.The personal relationships that occur during the sales process are STILL the most powerful component that salespeople need to take care of. It’s those relationships that build things like trust, repeat business, loyalty, and the other things that every sales professional wants. But ironically many sales books and philosophies recently have said that relationships are no longer as important. Find out why those mentalities are completely false and how you can recapture the relationships that will grow your sales portfolio.What are other ways we could help our clients be more #successful in their business?Click To TweetOutline of this great episode Anthony’s introduction of Mike Schultz, today’s guest. What are the underlying foundations for sales organizations? What high performers do differently when it comes to value propositions. Internal and external value discoveries that make sales happen. How can salespeople help prospects deal with fear of risk? Why bringing up the fears of prospects is a good idea. Repeat business through honesty about the difficulties in the sale. A great cause the sales of Mike’s books support. What happens when you dismiss the personal relationships in sales. What does it really mean to understand the buyer’s needs?

Win More by Serving Your Buyers Where They Are

first_imgIs how you sell in line with serving your prospective clients at each stage of their decision-making process?Do you know where your prospective client is in this process before you begin to sell? This post was originally a Sunday newsletter. If you ever want to know what that newsletter is like, here is a sample.This is a long and critically important piece of content. You may want to spend some time with it this week.Selling well begins with understanding where your prospective client is in their decision-making. By knowing where they are in their process, you can better serve them, and you can also create a preference for you and your solution.A Problem Worth SolvingYou will find your prospective clients in one of three states.The first state in which you might find them is the easiest and least likely. That is where they have a problem worth solving and they are compelled to solve it.The second state you might find your prospective client in is one where they don’t know that they have a problem, and so they aren’t compelled to change. This is more likely where most of your clients are when you find them. You can see that they should be producing better results, but they don’t understand how those results are possible.You might also find a prospective client who knows that they have a problem but are not compelled to solve it.The more your approach serves the prospect where they are, the better your results. If they know they have a problem and are compelled to change, you help them do so. If they don’t know that they could be producing better results and that they should be compelled to change, you teach them what their problems are and how you can help solve them.What about the third group, the group that knows they have a problem and won’t change. Some people actually have to experience the heart attack before they change their diet and start exercising.Is this change worth pursuing?Identification of Root Cause and Compelling VisionSometimes your prospective clients need help understanding the root cause of their problems or challenges. They need help identifying a compelling vision of what their future should look like.Good salespeople help their prospective clients solve the presenting problem or challenge they uncovered during their discovery. Great salespeople help their prospective clients find the root cause of those problems or challenges.Good salespeople do an excellent job selling their solution. Great salespeople build a compelling vision of the future state, recognizing that the solution is valuable only as it relates to bringing that vision to life.We think of discovery as coming to understand our prospective clients’ needs. But it’s more than that. They are also discovering the root cause of their challenge and a vision of a better future. This is what we do when we are at our best.What needs to change?Why should I change now?How will it be better?Exploration of Alternatives and OptionsYou can sell much better when you understand what your prospective client is accomplishing during this stage. A limited view of an exploration of alternatives and options can cause you to sell poorly and lose opportunities.And, in our sometimes limited view, we think that we are competing only with our direct competitors. But our first competitor is the alternative of doing nothing. The status quo tends to have a lot of supporters, and when change is difficult, this option often looks very good.There are other alternatives that include doing something completely different than what you or your competitors may recommend. Some companies may outsource a whole segment of their business rather than bring in a supplier to help them do it themselves, for example.One mistake we sometimes make in this stage is to show our prospective client a single solution rather than giving them choices and collaborating with them on the right ideas.It’s true that in competitive situations we focus on how we compete and win against good companies with good people and good solutions, some better than ours. Good salespeople present solutions. Great salespeople present ideas, options, and a chance to collaborate on the solution and the outcomes.What are my choices?What are the trade-offs?What fits me the best?Evaluation of Risks and Addressing of FearsIf there is a cardinal sin in selling it is believing that your role as a salesperson ends after you present your solution. Your prospective client still needs your help.It’s normal and natural to have concerns before making a purchase. But the bigger the problem is, the more strategic the solution, the more compelling the vision, the more concerns your prospect will have about their risk. Your prospective client fears that the changes can be more difficult than they imagined, that they may fail, that they may not get the outcomes they need, that they may be embarrassed, and that things will be worse having tried and failed. Some or all of these may be true.Good salespeople provide proof as a way to help their prospective clients evaluate the risk and address their fears. Great salespeople provide the counsel of a trusted advisor.Instead of leaving their prospective client alone to think through the risks and fears, great salespeople schedule meetings and spend time helping them to make good decisions, to plan for unforeseen circumstances, and to mitigate any risks.
