Burnout isn’t just a buzzword. Recent research by McKinsey & Co. indicates that burnout continues to be a persistent threat to productivity for managers and employees alike. The good news? There are steps you can take to prevent burnout and keep your sales team motivated and primed for profit.
Here’s what works:
• Take microbreaks during the day. Studies show that short 10-minute breaks taken every few hours can reduce stress and boost productivity.
• Achieve a better work-life balance. Sales professionals who are more intentional about relaxing and recharging are able to show up as their best selves for their prospects, customers and co-workers.
• Celebrate the wins. Acknowledging your sales team’s wins – no matter how big or small – creates a positive workplace culture that enhances employee engagement and retention.
