Automotive Management Training: Recycling Your Perspective

free-vector-eco-think-green-floral-backgroundWhen someone claims to be “green”, what first comes to your mind?  They are making an effort to reduce their carbon foot print on mother earth?  Maybe they are a vegetarian?  Or they are actively recycling?

When I hear the word “green” used to describe someone, the first thought that comes to mind is “green pea” or the newly hired sales staff members.  Like a struggling seedling, these green peas are pushing their way up through all the heavy soil around them, reaching for the life giving sun.

Seedlings tend to:

  • Adapt rapidly and are flexible and unstoppable
  • Look for new ways of doing things and think outside the box
  • Absorb everything around them
  • Maximize resource use and do more with less
  • Draw little attention,
  • Strong despite size and have a can do anything attitude
  • Aspire to be a tree with a think big and you will be big viewpoint

Nothing can stop the changes of time.  As a seedling grows into a sapling, it starts to become more rigid.  When a sapling becomes a tree, it is almost inflexible.  Even something as invisible as the wind can destroy a tree.

We are all on the pathway to becoming a tree, but successful sales professionals will continue to progress as if they were still a seedling.  No matter your experience or wisdom, recycle your thinking to the time you were a seedling.

Perfection is unsustainable, while personal progress is obtainable.   Stay green and let yourself grow!
