My clients got tired of that--and for good reason.
If what we're doing isn't getting the results we want, we lose our motivation and swagger at some point.
It's time to get your swagger back.
But who am I to be saying these things?
I'm not your typical sales leadership coach or personal transformation coach--I'm an expert on developing your "Swagger."
Everyone has it inside them.
You tap into yours at times--but are you able to stay there consistently?
When you read my client testimonials you'll find them saying (in one way or the other) that I helped them find their swagger or empowered them to grow more of it.
As you might suspect, there's a story behind how I got there.
I first learned about "swagger" when I was a psychotherapist in private practice. The clients who came to me had lost their swagger--in their marriage, in their work, in their self-concept or in some other way.
Of course, they didn't say, "I've lost my swagger, can you help me get it back?
They used words like "I feel burned out" (or "depressed"), "My anxiety is really bad," "My career has flattened," "My team isn't doing as great as they're capable of" or "My marriage is in trouble--can you help me fix it?"
Interestingly enough, whatever the "presenting problem" was, in a sense, my clients had a performance problem--they weren't producing the results they wanted.
And some of my clients were sales professionals who weren't selling enough or had a manager that was awful and it was affecting their sales performance. Or they were having trouble at home or some other personal crisis and that was slowing or killing their performance and sales.
My clients brought me their (previously) unsolved problems.
That's how I learned what worked and didn't work in helping people create deep, rapid and lasting change.
It wasn't easy and my discoveries came over time as I worked with people.
One challenge was the very people who asked me for help unintentionally sabotaged the changes they wanted or the speed of it.
If you're a sales manager or senior executive, I know you get what I'm talking about.
People (especially sales professionals) want to make the changes necessary to perform at higher levels--but most often they don't know how to do that.
And at work, sadly too many managers and leaders chalk that up to "They didn't use the training we just sent them to" or "They're not working hard enough" or "They just won't take my advice."
There's partial truth in all that.
But there's a bigger truth we need to see:
What we're doing isn't working that well.
This is especially true in the sales profession.
I know this because the sales people I've worked with had blocks to their performance.
I had to learn what worked and make it happen as fast as possible.
People want to create lasting results in all their life, to have meaning and purpose and they want to be happy and fulfilled.
In short, they want to live and work with swagger.
And they deserve the help they need to get it and grow it.
If you have a sales team (or a non-sales team) and they're not bringing their swagger to work, I can show you how to tap into it and let it flow.

Take Action Now: We have an overall quotient of swagger for life and contextualized quotients for it. We can be happy and feel the swagger in certain areas of life but not others. For instance, we can have swagger at work but not at home. If you're not happy in any area of your life, that area will be a drag on other areas. That's because real happiness, having reserves of positive energy, is what fuels authentic swagger.
